  • Please note that the Qualifying Deferred Annuity Policy (“QDAP”) status of this product does not necessarily mean you are eligible for tax deduction available for QDAP premiums paid. This product’s QDAP status is based on the features of the product as well as certification by the IA and not the facts of your own situation. You must also meet all the eligibility requirements set out under the Inland Revenue Ordinance and any guidance issued by the Inland Revenue Department of HKSAR before you can claim these tax deductions. Any general tax information provided is for your reference only, and you should not make any tax-related decisions based on such information alone. You should always consult with a professional tax advisor if you have any doubts. Please note that the tax law, regulations or interpretations are subject to change and may affect related tax benefits including the eligibility criteria for tax deduction. BOC Life does not take any responsibility to inform you about any changes in the laws and regulations or interpretations, and how they may affect you. Further information on tax concessions applicable to QDAP may be found at the website of IA and website of Inland Revenue Department of HKSAR .

Certification by the Insurance Authority:

  • The mere fact that the Plan has been certified by IA does not mean that the premiums paid for policies under the Plan are eligible for tax deductions. Certification by IA is only an indication that the product complies with the criteria set out by IA. IA’s certification is not a recommendation or endorsement of the policy nor does it guarantee the commercial merits of the policy or its performance. It does not mean the policy is suitable for all Policy Owners nor is it an endorsement of its suitability for any particular Policy Owner or class of Policy Owners. The policy has been certified by the IA but such certification does not imply official recommendation. The IA does not take any responsibility for the contents of the product brochure of the policy, makes no representation as to its accuracy or completeness, expressly disclaims any liability whatsoever for any loss howsoever arising from or in reliance upon the whole or any part of the contents of the product brochure of the policy.
