    The Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Initiative – “BEPS”
    G20 Leaders called on the OECD to launch an initiative in July 2012, to review and reform the international tax system, specifically referring to "the need to prevent base erosion and profit shifting." A first set of recommendations on a number of the Action Points was released on 16 September 2014 in respect of Actions 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 13 and 15. Further details, recommendations and implementation on other Action Points are expected through 2015.

     

    New Tax Information Exchange Agreement
    Pursuant to the wider scope of tax information exchange allowed by the Inland Revenue (Amendment) (No. 2) Ordinance 2013, Hong Kong signed its first tax information exchange agreements with the United States, followed by six more agreements signed with Denmark, Faroes, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
    The OECD proposals for AEOI were released on 13 February 2014. These proposals have since been endorsed by the majority of jurisdictions around the world, including by Hong Kong, which has stated that it aims to begin automatically exchanging information with selected jurisdictions by the end of 2018. This timeline is however conditional on the necessary legislative framework being put in place by 2017 and the completion of a consultation process.
