Hong Kong, SAR
Dividends, royalties, interest, rents, etc.
Hong Kong does not impose withholding tax on dividends, interests or rents. The only withholding tax is on any payment made to a nonresident for the use of, or the right to use, certain intellectual property in Hong Kong, or outside Hong Kong where the payments are deductible for the taxpayer. The general tax rate is 16.5 percent on the assessable profits. When the payment is derived from an associate and the relevant intellectual property has once been owned by any Hong Kong taxpayer, the assessable profits are deemed to be 100 percent of the payment; in other circumstances, the assessable profits are generally deemed to be 30 percent of the payment. A double taxation arrangement may provide for a lower rate.
Not applicable for this jurisdiction.
