Maximize Profits in Your Dividend Repatriation by Leveraging the PRC-HK DTA



Overseas investors who derive dividends from China are normally subject to a 10 percent withholding tax. However, according to the provisions of double tax avoidance agreements (DTAs), they could enjoy a lower tax rate in certain circumstances.

For Hong Kong investors/applicants to qualify to enjoy the treaty benefit on their China-sourced dividends, it is crucial to understand the definition of Beneficial Owner (BO) status, Certificate of Residence status (COR), and other important rules.

Who can benefit from a DTA and what are the edibility criteria and standards? How will the DTA between China’s Mainland and Hong Kong benefit taxpayers? In this upcoming webinar, Hannah Feng, Partner at Dezan Shira & Associates in our Beijing office, and Jennifer Lu, Director of our Hong Kong office, will provide insights and guidance on how to optimize profit when repatriating dividends in compliance with the PRC-HK DTA.
