Capital Duty Payable = (HKD10,000,000 - 10,000) x 0.1% = HKD9,990
Example 2: increase of authorised capital from HKD10,000 to HKD50,000,000
Capital Duty Payable = (HKD50,000,000 - 10,000) x 0.1% = HKD49,990, however, as capital duty is capped at HKD30,000, the capital duty payable in this case is therefore HKD30,000.
