Mainland Buyer Paid 40% Tax For Sheung Shui Luxury Home
Mainland buyers continue to invest in Hong Kong’s luxury homes. A Mainland buyer purchased a 1,022-square-foot three-room unit in Sheung Shui’s Woodland Crest for HK$9 million, or HK$8,806 per square foot. In addition to the 15% buyer’s stamp duty and 15% double stamp duty, the buyer is willing to pay the 10% special stamp duty – since the holding period of this property by the seller is less than 36 months. The total tax is estimated to be 40% of the property price – that is HK$3.6 million.
