If you hired an employee who may be subjected to salaries tax, as the employer, you must file a IR56E form (or by electronic means) within 3 months.
Case in point:
Mr. A was hired by the company as an IT technician on April 7, 2020. He may be subject to salaries tax by the IRD. In this scenario, the employer needs to file a IR56E form before July 7, 2020.
*In Hong Kong, most people who earn income from holding positions, being employed or receiving pensions are subject to salaries tax. If an employee received a Tax Return from the Inland Revenue Department (IRD), he or she must complete and submit it to IRD within the deadline even if he/she does not have taxable income.
