CategoryRate
Residential property15% of purchase price


A new flat rate of 15 per cent for the ad valorem stamp duty (AVD) chargeable on transactions for residential property. Except for specified exemptions, the new rate applies to all acquisitions of residential property by individuals or companies. The major exemption is where the buyer is a Hong Kong Permanent Resident acting on his/her own behalf and is not a beneficial owner of any other residential property in Hong Kong at the time of acquisition of a residential property. Under such circumstances, the new AVD rate will not apply and the relevant transaction is only subject to the lower AVD rates at Scale 2.
