Losses incurred in a taxable year can be carried forward and used to offset the profits of the company in subsequent years.
Profits Tax shall be levied according to the actual profits of the taxable year. Since the profits of one year shall be determined only after the end of year, Inland Revenue Department will levy provisional tax before the end of that year. After the profits of relevant year are assessed in the following year, the provisional tax already paid can be deducted from the Profits Tax payable of this year.
If corporate profits do not arise from Hong Kong, and the company has not set up an office in Hong Kong nor hired Hong Kong employees, then its earned profits will be exempt from Profits Tax.
Yes. Because company incorporation is profit-oriented, even if Hong Kong only performs the role of collecting and paying for others, the company shall be deemed as agency service business, and the income shall be the commission for collection and payment for others.
No. According to Hong Kong laws, every Hong Kong Company has the obligation to declare its financial condition to Inland Revenue Department, whether its business takes place in Hong Kong or not. If this Company does not have its source of income in Hong Kong, it can apply to Inland Revenue Department for exemption from taxation.
