Understand the payroll requirements of Hong Kong

Increasingly, UK based payroll teams are expected to manage payroll production for other countries, often outsourcing to local experts, but the employer remains ultimately liable for any compliance issues.

The UK team may be required to provide a sign-off to the outsourced provider. Do you know what you are signing off or how to check the basic features of a payroll service in a country where you are not familiar with the rules?

Our course provides you with a comprehensive overview of Hong Kong's rules to enable you to compliantly manage your approach, the following is addressed on this course:

    • Tax Authority details
    • Income tax withholding obligations and rates
    • Basic tax calculation
    • Tax free items
    • Treatment of Benefits In Kind
    • Social Insurance calculation
    • Monthly and annual reporting requirements
    • Payroll relevant employment law covering working time, annual leave, sickness and parental leave
    • A look at relevant local websites

We provide a course manual as well as comprehensive local documentation, in English where available.

"I have always found the Learn Centre to be helpful and supportive of not only mine but the team's payroll training needs. The blended learning approach works well for me and I would not hesitate to recommend them as a Payroll training specialist provider not only for online delivery (e-learning) but also face 2 face and in-house. The Payroll Professionals Conference is also a great networking opportunity."
