T-box Workshop on “Tax and Legal Overview on the Emerging Ecommerce Business” (Webinar)
Cantonese (No simultaneous interpretation service provided)
The COVID-19 pandemic has no doubt slowed down the world’s economy. On the other hand, COVID-19 has accelerated the use of internet with the adoption of work-from-home arrangement and skyrocketed online sales for both domestic and cross-border transactions. In the midst of this challenging time, e-Commerce is expected to play an important role in pathing the recovery of the world’s economy and creating new opportunities.
As the e-Commerce landscape is ever evolving, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) had suggested a new set of international tax principles in addressing the taxing rights on income generated from cross-border transactions under the digital economy. From a domestic level, the Hong Kong Inland Revenue (“IRD”) had also issued new guidance covering “Digital economy, electronic commerce and digital assets”.
In this workshop, tax and legal industry experts are invited to share their insights regarding the development of the e-Commerce industry. There will also be practical tax and legal tips for e-Commerce users to ponder over and enhance their future approach.
