Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Deacons boasts an experienced team of tax lawyers to provide clear, incisive advice to clients on the tax regimes of Hong Kong, Mainland China and further abroad.
Hong Kong is one of the world’s most tax-friendly economies, with a historically low and simple tax code making it a uniquely attractive hub for global businesses and investment in Asia.
In Mainland China, 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.
Whether the issue is business or corporate taxation, individual remuneration, long-term investment, estate planning, or tax disputes it is crucial to have experienced tax lawyers 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 tax lawyers enjoy extensive contacts with industry and professional associations, tax authorities, and academia, enabling us to provide incisive, timely advice on legislative and regulatory developments.
Our skilled and experienced team advises on all areas of tax law, from devising the most tax-efficient structure for your business operations or investments to enabling you to make the most of tax and stamp duty planning opportunities, and enjoy the benefit of such reliefs, incentives, and concessions as may be available in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and internationally.
We are also highly experienced in tax dispute resolution, with a consolidated track record of assisting our clients in negotiating with the Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department, and if necessary representing them before the Board of Review and higher courts as solicitors and advocates.
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 leading independently researched directories – we have been appearing in Legal 500 Asia Pacific every year since 2008.
