My gf and I are moving from Canada to HK next year. Her employer has given her control of how her salary is paid out. It can be all in CDN, all in HKD or a combination of both. So here are my questions.
1) Will the currency she gets paid determine whether or not Canadian taxes must be paid on the salary? (i.e. If all is HKD, will she only pay taxes in HK and not Canada?)
2) If she gets paid only in HKD and saves a good portion of that money in a HK bank, will there be an issue bringing those savings back to Canada at the end of her contract? Will that money be taxed when we come back to Canada?
Any information is greatly appreciated! If you happen to have more information you think we need, please let me know!
