Bookkeeping for Exempted Company

Exempted companies, such as Hong Kong/Singapore companies, are different from traditional offshore companies that are completely exempt from taxation, but taxation is cheaper than that of general entities such as China/Taiwan.

If a local business or capital transactions are involved, taxation is required annually. Information, or an auditor’s report issued by a local accountant, to reconfirm whether local income tax is required.

I.Tax Regulations

  • Overseas exempted companies generally need to make annual declarations once a year, and the local accountants will report and submit them. If there are not many accounts in the current year, you can choose to do the annual account by the local accountant and issue an annual audit. If there is a local business or account. 
  • For a relatively large number of enterprises, enterprises generally cannot wait until the end of the year to start accounting. Generally, they should start to prepare accounting information when there is a business operation. It is recommended that they should be accounted for by the accountant every month to avoid delays in the annual audit and a fine.
