Webinar: Tax Audit Resolution, Especially Tips on Recent Areas of Review
Event Code : 20221018


The peak season for commencement of the Inland Revenue Department's ("IRD") new tax aduit cases is approaching. Given the enormous budget deficit predicted by the Financial Secretary recently, the IRD is expected to take a more stringent approach in conducting tax aduits.

In view of the above and under the current economic environment, businesses should be particularly vigilant in the day to day handling of their tax matters to avoid becoming a tax audit target, and handle any tax audit with extra care if already being reviewed. 

In this webinar, the speakers will cover the latest developments on tax audit cases in Hong Kong. Highlights of the webinar include:

  1. Latest common areas and circumstances triggering a tax audit
  2. Overview of the tax audit process and points to note for each step
  3. Tips for initial interview with the IRD – before, during and after
  4. Practical ways to resolve controversial tax disputes including how to speed up the resolution
  5. Interactive Q&A session
