從創立至今，SAP 已於全球屹立 50 年，而 SAP 香港亦正式邁向 30 周年。在此驕人的里程碑下，SAP NOW Hong Kong 2022 聚焦一大重要議題：在以數據驅動營運的未來下，支援公司成為「可持續的智慧企業」。
SAP 香港區總經理夏瑞嬅在論壇歡迎不同行業的商界人士，並表示：「可持續的智慧企業擅於利用雲端技術適應、轉型、創新，並會基於數據掌握全面的經營情況，制訂決策。憑藉 50 年的企業解決方案經驗，SAP 於去年推出整合式方案 RISE with SAP，助企業以數據管理、人工智能、機械學習、自動化和預測分析，與客戶、員工、供應商以及合作夥伴攜手進步。SAP 亦正支援企業在核心流程加入可持續元素，提升業務永續的能力。」
多位著名香港業界領袖的分享亦是 SAP NOW 的焦點。會上，他們就利用科技和數據應對動蕩的營運環境，以及如何為即將到來的可持續經濟做好準備，提供了真知灼見。

Collection and payment of stock transaction tax (“STT”) on the sale of shares of Emperador Inc. (“EMI”) traded on the SGX-ST to the Philippines Bureau of Internal Revenue (“BIR”)
The trading of EMI’s shares on the SGX-ST is subject to a STT of 0.6% of the gross selling price or gross value in money of the shares sold. The term gross selling price or gross value in money refers to the total amount of money or its equivalent which the purchaser pays the seller as consideration for the shares. STT is a final tax due on and payable by the seller of the shares, and is required to be collected by and paid to the Philippine tax authorities by the selling stockbroker on behalf of the seller. Failure by shareholders or Singapore brokers to pay or to remit STT payable to the BIR may result in a breach of law and/or contract.
The STT payable by a selling shareholder of EMI’s shares traded on the SGX-ST will be collected and withheld by his Singapore broker on his behalf at the date of settlement of the trade. Singapore brokers may remit the collected STT to the BIR via BDO Securities Corporation (“BDO“), which has been appointed by EMI as the receiving and remitting agent (the “Receiving Agent“), or may choose to remit the collected STT to the BIR via other avenues, such as through their Philippines affiliated brokers.
As of the date of this announcement, the following Singapore brokers have been onboarded with BDO as the Receiving Agent:
CGS-CIMB Securities (Singapore) Pte. Ltd.;
CLSA Singapore Pte Ltd;
Daiwa Capital Markets Singapore Limited;
DBS Vickers Securities (Singapore) Pte Ltd;
Lim & Tan Securities Pte Ltd;
Macquarie Capital Securities (Singapore) Pte. Limited;
Maybank Securities Pte. Ltd;
Philip Securities Pte Ltd;
Tiger Brokers (Singapore) Pte Ltd;
UBS Securities Pte Ltd; and
UOB Kay Hian Private Limited.
 Daiwa Capital Markets Singapore Limited is in the process of providing the attestation on collection, withholding, remittance and reporting of STT for EMI to SGX-ST, which is required before it can offer trading in the shares of EMI on the SGX-ST.
In the event that a Singapore broker has arranged to remit the collected STT to the BIR via the Receiving Agent and such arrangement is terminated by either the Singapore broker or the Receiving Agent, or in the event that the Receiving Agent no longer acts as the receiving and remitting agent for any reason, the Singapore broker will need to provide alternative modes of STT payment to comply with the applicable regulations (including ensuring that they have in place the necessary procedures and controls in the collection, withholding, remittance and reporting of the STT for the sale of EMI’s shares on the SGX-ST in order to continue offering services to facilitate the trading of EMI’s shares on the SGX-ST). Until such Singapore broker is able to provide an alternative payment method, selling shareholders trading through such Singapore broker may be unable to trade EMI’s shares on the SGX-ST.
Please refer to https://www.emperadorbrandy.com/payment-of-stock-transaction-tax.html as well as EMI’s introductory document dated 20 June 2022 (the “Introductory Document“) for further details regarding the collection and payment of STT on the sale of shares of EMI traded on the SGX-ST to the BIR. The information in the Introductory Document is provided strictly for information only and should be read as of its date. The information is not and does not constitute or form part of, and is not made in connection with, any offer, invitation or recommendation to sell or issue, or any solicitation of any offer to purchase or subscribe for, any securities of any entity.
Prospective purchasers and holders of EMI’s shares on the SGX-ST are advised to consult their own advisers concerning the tax, legal and other consequences of their purchasing, holding, disposing of or dealing in EMI’s shares and to consult with their respective Singapore brokers in respect of the payment of STT and additional fees and charges (if any) that may apply in respect of the payment of STT to the BIR.
