    Question Tax residency for MPF

    As part of MPF enrollment, it was required to declare tax residence.
    Anyone got any idea if I should declare Philippines as tax resident in my case? Philippines citizen but HK resident.

    Thanks

    If you live and work here you are tax resident here for salary tax purposes.

    "but HK resident." .......then you are HK tax resident by default, right?

    there is a big difference between tax residency and citizenship and it varies by jurisdiction.

    There will be plenty of HK residents that are tax resident in other countries. Guess what they work there!

    I am a UK citizen but not a UK tax resident.
