South Africa Hong Kong Double Tax Agreement

Under Article 151 of the Basic Law, Hong Kong is free to negotiate its own double taxation conventions independently of mainland China (i.e..dem the rest of the People`s Republic of China), using the acronym Hong Kong, China. The territory cannot resort to double taxation agreements that China can enter into, as these treaties only mention taxes on the continent. Mainland China will also not impose double taxation conventions on the territory, since under Articles 106 to 108 of Hong Kong`s Basic Law, it guaranteed the right to maintain an independent tax system without continental interference until 2047.

In addition, under the DBA, Hong Kong airlines flying to Brunei are taxed at the Hong Kong corporate tax rate (which is lower than Brunei`s). Profits from international shipping made by Hong Kong residents but made in Brunei, which are currently taxable in Brunei, will be tax-exempt under the agreement. In June 2001, Hong Kong concluded a limited maritime traffic agreement with the United Kingdom.
