About Us

We all know that the duty to pay tax will always be there. As Hong Kong and Mainland China are emerging markets, sophisticated tax advice in Asia has become increasingly in demand with a view to mitigate the (corporate) income tax in Hong Kong and elsewhere.

Further, as a result of recent pressure from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (`OECD`), most jurisdictions, including Hong Kong and Mainland China, have decided that Exchange of Information should be part of their tax legal system.

The tax system in Hong Kong is simple but not straight forward. HKWJ Tax Law & Partners Limited is here to assist you with finding the right tax solution for you personally and your companies by means of offering Mainland China and Hong Kong tax services including international tax services. We are also specialised in resolving tax disputes between the Mainland China/Hong Kong tax department (Hong Kong tax office) and clients. In Hong Kong, apart from Hong Kong taxation, we are here to assist you also with your accounting issues and carry out process agent services at the same time.
