This forum is spreading misinformation claiming there is Value Added Tax in Hong Kong.

You could have avoided doing so by familiarizing yourself with Hong Kong's tax system, or even just by googling Hong Kong and VAT. The very first result states:



Hong Kong V.A.T

There is no Value Added Tax, VAT ,GST or any other sales tax in Hong Kong.

I know someone who does business in Hong Kong. He says there's a great business environment there.

Stop by the Lin Hung Tea House and get some deep fried chicken feet and I will reimburse you the tab :)

Yes, and we hear your mother is spreading herpes infections down on Wan Chai road.

I suppose you'll say that's not true, either.

I see a recent post proving OP is right:


Singapore, Hong Kong, and Switzerland are all far more economically free than the US and spend far less and they all have VATs.

Not really. Two posts within a half hour by one person (me) is hardly an entire forum spreading misinformation. I have never seen anyone else say that. And it is a pretty minor error at that. Hardly worth starting a thread over.

You coulda asked me. Your local HK RPFer.


No there is no VAT nor sales tax here. There are far fewer taxes here.
