Sorry if this has been asked/discussed before, but I could not find an answer after 30 mins of searching.
- My employer agreed to to a housing allowance of 8K HKD per month.
- They do not require my housing agreement or rent receipts every month.
- I finally rented an unfurnished flat for 6K HKD.
- In the Tax Return that my employer filed, they have put: "Rent paid to Landlord by Employee: 8000 HKD | Rent refunded to Employee to Employer: 8000 HKD"
Is this an issue I need to bring up with my employer right now?
Since in the tax return that I will file, there will be a discrepancy of 2000 HKD in Rent paid to landlord.
Or, will this discrepancy mean that the leftover 2000 HKD will be treated as cash allowance since my employer does not 'exercise proper control' over the housing allowance?
