財爺,think out of the box啦!

財爺曾俊華發表千五字網誌,表示擔心支出增長持續高於收入增長,在出現結構性赤字後,儲備會急速遞減,債務會急促上升,因此社會關注政府能否承擔新增措施的開支,並非無的放矢 。

先不說目前財政儲備積累近七千億元,約為本地生產總值百分之三十五,足供政府二十二個月的開支。炯叔叔想跟財爺說,你有沒有看到你的同事蘇局長前幾天的一段新聞?

前幾天,政府完成了本港接待旅客能力評估報告,預測到2017年有超過7,000萬人次旅客訪港,2023年甚至有1億人次的旅客湧港,比去年激增近一倍。商務及經濟發展局局長蘇錦樑在記者會上稱,香港屬外向型經濟體系,故不應該、亦不能夠就旅客人數設上限。蘇錦樑又認為,香港各方面大致仍能應付2017年的需求,雖然會為本地人帶來不便,但他籲市民要考慮旅遊業對就業及經濟情況的貢獻。

說得好!蘇局長。謝謝。

其實2013年到11月份,本港的訪港旅客已經超過4900萬,其中大部份是大陸同胞(2012年中國大陸訪港旅客有3400萬人次)。

好了,財爺,你可以Think out of the box 嗎?

Think!

你有沒有想過徵收Tourist Tax呢?

Tourist Tax 徵收的方法有很多種,你可以透過增加離境稅、入境稅、酒店房租稅,你甚至可以用Ecotax的名義(環保稅)收稅。。。總之目的是讓我們的旅客在「享受」香港的同時,也可以多為香港的庫房作出貢獻。

其實,世界各地很多旅遊熱點已經對旅客徵收“Tourist Tax”。德國在2011年開始徵收air passenger tax,在機票的價錢上markup。當時他們德國的財爺Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble冒著給反對黨鬧爆的情況下推出(反對的聲音認為會影響旅遊業與整個德國經濟)。結果air passenger tax每一年為德國庫房帶來10億Euro的進賬。 33 more words
