Tax Breaks for Green Factories [1]

Businesses that implement environmentally-friendly facilities will get an accelerated tax deduction, a measure aimed at encouraging the business community to use them. Environmental protection machinery includes low noise construction machinery or plants, as well as waste treatment, wastewater treatment and air-pollution control machinery, or a plant in compliance with the requirements under the department-administered ordinances. Subject to the Legislative Council’s passing of the Bill, amendments will be made to the Inland Revenue Ordinance.
