Instead of the HKD 6,000 one-time injection into MPF accounts, Hong Kong permanent residents aged 18 or over will receive a HKD 6,000 handout. The HKD 6,000 handout will be allocated to Hong Kong permanent residents through a new platform (yet to be announced) structured to encourage them to save. The Financial Secretary also announced a Salaries Tax reduction of up to 75 percent for the coming year, capped at HKD 6,000.
