Frequently Answered Questions
The IRD will generally issue the first Profits Tax Return for newly incorporated businesses 18 months after the date of their commencement. However, the IRD may issue a Provisional Profits Tax Return at an earlier date where circumstances warrant.
Upon receipt of a Profits Tax Return, the taxpayer should submit the return along with any required supplementary forms within 1 month from the date of issue. The compliance date of submission for each Profits Tax Return will be specified on page 1 of the Profits Tax Return.
It is possible to obtain an extension to your profits tax returns. To promote electronic filing, small corporations and small partnership businesses can apply for a further extension of 2 weeks after the normal submission date, on the condition that they submit their Profits Tax Returns through the internet. Businesses may also apply for an extension under the Block Extension Scheme. It is recommended to consult the IRD’s official website with the particular extended due dates of Profits Tax Returns.
To the extent that a taxpayer fails to submit their tax return on time, they may be required to pay a penalty or may even face prosecution. A further consequence is that the taxpayer in question may be liable to pay an increased tax. The maximum penalty for non-compliance is HK$10,000 plus treble the amount of tax undercharged.
In situations where taxes have been underpaid, the IRD may impose an additional 5% of the taxable amount as a penalty.
