為推動創新科技發展,鼓勵更多企業在香港進行研發工作,培育本地科研人才,政府於2018年修訂《稅務條例》,為企業在本地進行的合資格研發活動所招致的研發開支提供額外扣稅優惠,最高可達300%,有關項目的扣稅安排適用於企業於2018年4月1日或之後招致的研發開支。

新修訂的《稅務條例》訂明研發開支可分為「甲類開支」和「乙類開支」。符合資格的「甲類開支」可獲100%稅項扣減,而「乙類開支」的首200萬元可獲300%扣稅,餘額則可獲200%扣減。

為令IT業界進一步了解新修訂的《稅務條例》,莫乃光議員將於4月16日下午舉辦《研發開支「超級扣稅」》簡介會,邀請創新科技署及稅務局代表出席,介紹及講解有關超級扣稅的條文和資格、成為「指定本地研究機構」的條件等,並回答在場人士的提問。

1. Making New Internet Domains Work for Everyone

Top-level domains (TLDs) and email addresses have evolved since 2010, when Chinese and other language characters and Top-Level Domains (TLDs) longer than 3 characters (e.g. .museum, .asia, etc.) were introduced.  If you are not aware of the implications of Universal Acceptance (UA), you may risk failing your customers and missing business opportunities.

Learn more about the basics of Universal Acceptance (UA) here: http://get.uasg.asia/docs/UA101_HK_ENZH_final.pdf

2. Is Your Email Ready for the Global Market?

Is your system UA-Ready (Universal Acceptance)? To make a system ready for a global audience, users need to be able to write their email address and domain in their native scripts like in Russian, Hindi, Thai or Chinese.

3. Programming Language Hacks to Prepare for the Global Market
