|(課程編號 T0122) The Inland Revenue Department’s eTAX Journey|
||Code T0122 (4 Jan 2022)|
The Inland Revenue Department (IRD) has been working at full steam to take forward a project on electronic filing (e-filing) of profits tax returns which will be implemented by two phases. In the first phase, the existing eTax Portal will be enhanced by 2023, to enable more businesses to voluntarily e-file profits tax returns, together with their financial statements and tax computations in inline eXtensible Business Reporting Language (iXBRL) format. In the second phase, a new Business Tax Portal will be rolled-out by 2025 to replace the existing eTax Portal and facilitate e-filing of profits tax returns by businesses.
In the first quarter of 2021, the IRD conducted a consultation to seek views from interested parties on the proposed IRD Taxonomy Package aimed at facilitating the e-filing of financial statements and tax computations in iXBRL format. In June 2021, the Inland Revenue (Amendment) (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance 2021 was enacted, among other things, to enhance the mechanism for furnishing tax returns.
On 4 November 2021, the IRD issued a consultation paper (https://bit.ly/30ezoEM) setting out proposals for taking forward the e-filing project. The IRD would like to conduct a consultation session to brief the SCAA, AWAHK, CAANZ, CIMA and CPAA members and their employees on the proposals for taking forward the e-filing project and address their questions and concerns.
