Pre-IPO Tax Advisory

Our team provides comprehensive services that cover various aspects of tax planning and compliance before a company goes public. This includes a thorough review of the company's tax structure to ensure it is in line with Hong Kong's tax laws and regulations. We also assess potential tax risks and advise on strategies to mitigate them. Furthermore, we work with the company to optimize its tax efficiency, ensuring that the company pays the minimum amount of tax while adhering to all tax regulations.

A key aspect of Pre-IPO Tax Advisory is advising on cross-border tax issues, which are particularly relevant for Hong Kong-based companies with international operations. We assist in navigating the complexities of double taxation agreements, tax relief provisions, and other cross-border tax matters to ensure that the company enjoys the maximum tax benefits.

This helps investors make informed decisions about the company's financial and tax risks.

We offer a range of services tailored to meet the needs of companies preparing for an IPO. Our services include tax compliance reviews, and providing opinions on the company's tax position. We also assist in liaising with the tax authority in view of early finalization of the company’s tax position.
