Immigration Application / Overseas Tax Filing
For immigration applicants and successful immigrants holding Hong Kong properties, foreign governments may require them to provide property valuation reports to prove the market value of the Hong Kong properties they held on a specific date for the following purposes:
Immigration application: Certify property ownership and assess the total asset value
Overseas tax filing: Assessment of Capital Gains Tax when overseas persons sell their properties in Hong Kong
Purchase of overseas properties (such as purchasing HDB flats in Singapore)
Overseas Government, Consulates, Taxation Department and other institutions accept property valuation reports issued by registered valuation surveyors. Since local surveyors are more familiar with the Hong Kong property market, property valuation reports issued by qualified local surveyors are much more credible.
