First class advice on all areas of tax

Deacons offers an experienced tax team that advises clients on the tax regimes of Hong Kong, the PRC and further abroad. 

Hong Kong is one of the world's most tax-friendly economies. Its simple tax system and low rates make it an attractive hub for global businesses investing in Asia.

In the PRC, the situation is more complicated, with a variety of different income, transaction, property and behavioural taxes applying to Foreign Enterprises and Foreign Investment Enterprises doing business in the country.

Looking further abroad, there can be many international tax aspects to consider before investing.  For example, many jurisdictions offer a range of tax incentives for companies and individuals setting up or investing in the region, which can help you plan your financial affairs effectively. So it can pay to have experienced advisors in your corner to ensure that you are making the most of your opportunities, or to defend you if a dispute arises.

What sets Deacons apart in the field of tax is the breadth of our offering. As Hong Kong's oldest and largest independent law firm, our experienced lawyers enjoy extensive contacts with the tax authorities, allowing us to provide timely advice on regulatory developments.

Our skilled team can assist with all areas of tax law, from advising on the most tax-efficient structure for your business or investments, to informing you about what tax and stamp duty exemptions, reliefs and concessions may be available in Hong Kong, the PRC and internationally. We also work closely with tax lawyers in other jurisdictions where specialist advice is appropriate. We have won numerous awards for our work and been highly ranked by the leading independently researched directories – for example appearing in Legal 500 Asia Pacific every year since 2000.
