A consultation paper on broad-based taxes to be released tomorrow is expected to indicate preferences on new taxes, but will not draw any preliminary conclusion, a legislator said yesterday. Lawmaker Eric Li Ka-cheung, who represents the accountancy sector, said: 'I expect the consultation paper will suggest which tax is preferable. They should evaluate the various options and indicate preferences, but will not make any recommendations at this stage.' The advisory committee, headed by former legislator Moses Cheng Mo-chi, a solicitor, has indicated a sales tax, departure tax and environment tax would be included in the study. Though Financial Secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung has already said now is not the right time to introduce any new tax as the economy is still recovering, Mr Li said Mr Leung's remarks would not pre-empt the consultation exercise.
