About the Event:

Due to the generous Hong Kong Occupational Retirement Scheme Ordiance (ORSO) Tax regime and favorable use of double taxation agreement with Canada, no matter what your nationality, no matter where you currently reside for tax purposes, either now or in the future, the ORSO works as an extremely efficient tax-planning tool. The ORSO allows you to defer Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax. It is our belief that tax deferred is tax saved. It can accept most transferred pensions and/or registered plans with no limits. Also, there is no requirement to buy an annuity on retirement, and it will eliminate the half pension for a surviving spouse and secure capital for chosen heirs.

The ORSO makes it possible for individuals to establish a retirement pension plan that has significant positive tax implications, elimination of inheritance tax on succession, and discretion to choose from a nearly unfettered class and location of investments.

Hong Kong effectively offers this "exemption" outlet and, due to the region's persistent belief in free market and low taxes, it offers this alternative with no estate duty, no wealth tax, no capital gains tax, no withholding tax and no VAT and no annual net worth tax.

The key is legitimacy. Hong Kong is not a tax haven and therefore it is not categorized on the "black list" like Liechtenstein, Guernsey, the Cayman Islands, the BVI, Gibraltar, etc.; these jurisdictions often attempt to hide assets through complicated rule bending procedures and are routinely the subject of witch hunts by aggressive countries.

Conversely, Hong Kong reflects simply a straight forward, legitimate, long existent low tax system with attractive, genuine open pension planning for international and local clientele who wish to have safe/reliable capital to drawn on when they retire.
