Hong Kong has more benefits than ever before for investors in aviation financing and established a concessionary tax regime for the aircraft leasing industry. Qualifying aircraft lessors and aircraft leasing managers are entitled to a tax concession under which only 20 percent of the net lease rentals are assessed, to compensate for their non-entitlement to the aircraft's depreciation allowance.
This regime reduces the profits tax from 16.5 percent to 8.25 percent in regard to aircraft leasing.
