Hong Kong signs agreements on automatic exchange of financial account information in tax matters with 6 jurisdictions
Hong Kong has signed agreements with six jurisdictions for conducting automatic exchange of financial account information on tax matters. They are Belgium, Canada, Guernsey, Italy, Mexico and the Netherlands.
A Government spokesman said on 17 March 2017 that they have been seeking to expand Hong Kong’s AEOI network with their tax treaty partners. The signing of agreements with six more jurisdictions, bringing up the number of Hong Kong’s AEOI partners to a total of nine (including Japan, Korea and the United Kingdom), signifies the Government’s efforts in this drive
The Government will put the six places on the list of “reportable jurisdictions” under the Inland Revenue Ordinance.
