Hong Kong May Post $3.6 Billion Budget Surplus, Deloitte Says

Nov. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Hong Kong may post a HK$28 billion ($3.6 billion) budget surplus, leaving scope for the government to offer tax rebates, rental offsets and school vouchers, according to Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.

The surplus for 12 months ending March 2012 will decline from the HK$75 billion posted in the previous year because of lower returns from duties on equity trading and home sales, Yvonne Law, a partner at the accounting firm, said today in Hong Kong.

Financial Secretary John Tsang in March forecast a HK$8.5 billion budget deficit, after giving cash handouts to residents and tax rebates.
