Hong Kong has recently made changes to its Foreign-Sourced Income Exemption (FSIE) regime for passive income in line with international efforts to combat cross-border tax evasion and prevent double non-taxation. These changes, as per the effective Ordinance starting from 1 January 2023, have significant implications for the market.

The Foreign-Sourced Income Exemption (FSIE) regime encompasses various types of specified foreign-sourced income, such as disposal gains from the sale of equity interests in an entity, originating from a territory outside of Hong Kong.
