Convention for the Avoidance of Double Taxation, Holding Luxembourg & HK

Hi, i start a new thread about the convention for the avoidance of double Taxation between the Luxembourg and Hongkong.

I would like to know if this convention, can help me on my project.

I would like to make a Luxembourg company, with HK holding.
The HK company do get approx 60% of share capital about the Luxembourg company.

My question, is, at the end of year, the HK company can get the 60% of dividend, before taxation in Luxembourg ?
Exemple : 100 Euros of dividend, 60Euros go to HK company, without Luxembourg taxation.

Or Luxembourg taxation do get approx 29% of this 60Euros, before send the dividend to HK company ?

At the reverse, if i not really understand, maybe the best is Luxembourg company get 60% of Hongkong company, and Luxembourg no make taxation on the dividend received from HK company.

Thank you for your answer, and help !

these two firms are the shining beacons of 21 st century ecommerce. Both have set up in LUx and I am curious to know exactly why (overall taxation level is my hunch)?
The exact structure of a company like PayPal would be of interest as they mop up cash from all over the world presumably not paying a penny in uk, us France Spain Italy etc..

Luxembourg to go into deficit this year. That means taxes will go up. I think Luxembourg has a biggish problem on its hands.

- Increasing unemployment
- Competition from other jurisdictions
- A large and growing state sector. Young Luxembourgers these days dream of working for the state.
- It increased tax on investment funds, and now some have moved to Ireland (Bite the hand that feeds)
- It is planning costly investment in infrastructure, which may not be profitable. Eg: tram / velodrome /
- The state airline is close to a monopoly, and unwilling to open its airport to competition, but, a new airport will soon open in Germany (bitburg) and the monopoly will end. As a result airfares are too high.
- Opening a business is an administrative nightmare, and the business income tax is high at 29%, and the tax code relies heavily on depreciation and such to lower taxes (all which need professional help to achieve).

Hi, I will commence a 12 month contract in Lux. early 2011. I need to open a company for this. Right now I am considering opening an LTD in the UK as it is very tax efficient. My effective tax rate would be 15%. Can Luxembourg match this and can I open a company from abroad? Im in Australia at the moment. Thanks

Hi, I might get 300000 EUR from the sale of a building in France and I'm thinking to invest it into some kind of stockmarket fund, in a "civilized" region like Europe. But I do not want it to be based in Canada or France. Where should I invest it? I want to minimize the taxes and I bet in France they are too high. In Luxembourg? in Switzerland? In the UK? In Andorra? Spain, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Lichenstein, Austria... I heard good things about Austria or Luxembourg. Could you advise? Thank you Roger
