Hong Kong plans tax breaks for alternative investments

The Hong Kong government is poised to introduce new tax rules to attract investments in alternative sectors like private credit and infrastructure. Officials are currently consulting industry stakeholders and plan to release a consultation paper that includes tax exemptions on interest income for special purpose vehicles engaged in alternative investments. These changes could be announced as early as this month. This initiative is part of Hong Kong’s broader strategy to enhance its competitiveness in the growing alternative investment market, projected to reach USD23.3tr by 2027. Additionally, Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po recently announced a significant tax cut from 16.5% to 5% on profits generated from patents to foster research and development in the city.
