What is CbCR?

Country-by-Country Reporting (CbCR) is an international tax reporting standard developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It is designed to enhance transparency by requiring multinational enterprise group (MNE Group) to disclose key financial and operational information on a country-by-country basis.

CbCR Notification Requirements in Hong Kong:

In Hong Kong, CbCR requirements were introduced as part of the Inland Revenue Ordinance.  The regulations apply to MNE Group with consolidated group revenue exceeding HKD 6.8 billion (approximately USD 870 million / EUR 750 million) in the preceding fiscal year.

Key requirements of the CbCR Notification in Hong Kong are as follows:

1. Filing Obligation: MNE Group meeting the revenue threshold must submit a CbCR Notification to the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) within 3 months after the end of the relevant fiscal year.

2. Information to be Disclosed: The CbCR Notification should include detailed information about the reporting entity:

  • CbC ID Number
