In recent years, the Hong Kong Government has stepped up efforts to promote Hong Kong’s development as a premier Private Funds hub. The establishment of the new Hong Kong Limited Partnership Fund Ordinance (Cap 637) (LPFO), which has been in effect since 31 August 2020, is a significant milestone for the Private Funds industry in Hong Kong as it provides a competitive fund structure that is faster, cheaper and more efficient to operate and maintain.
Following this development, the Government recently published in the Gazette the proposed legislation on tax concessions for carried interest. In addition, a re-domiciliation mechanism for foreign funds is targeted to be introduced to the Legislative Council in the second quarter of 2021. What are the latest updates on the tax treatment for carried interest? What future developments should you be aware of?
In this webinar, our panel of distinguished guest speakers from the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (“HKMA”), Sidley Austin, and KPMG will provide valuable information on this subject.
