Implementation of Global Tax Rules in Hong Kong

On December 21, 2023, Hong Kong’s FSTB and IRD released a consultation paper on adopting the Global Anti-base Erosion Model Rules (GloBE Rules) and the Hong Kong minimum top-up tax (HKMTT) to address international tax reform. The proposal targets multinational enterprises (MNEs) with annual revenue over EUR750 million, aiming for a minimum 15% tax on profits in each jurisdiction. The plan is to align with OECD guidelines starting in 2025, with HKMTT serving as a Qualified Domestic Minimum Top-up Tax. Key points include the definition of Hong Kong resident entities, HKMTT design mirroring GloBE Rules, and transitional safe harbors for compliance relief.
