問號背後

新年剛過,發生令人不開心的熱氣球墮毀意外,導致多人死傷。不管是香港人、日本人和法國人也好,禤中怡向他們的家人表達深切哀悼,求主安慰他們的心靈。

意外確難以預料,禤中怡剛自駕遊回港,行程總算順利,皆因司機由朋友擔任,駕駛技術不用懷疑,即使走在下大雨的高速公路上奔馳也不擔心。不過,在回程的一個「十字」路口,朋友見前車右轉,也順勢跟著開車,怎知對面線的汽車竟駛過來,幸好兩車速度不快,兼且各自向相反方向扭軚,才不致釀成意外,但確也嚇了一跳。事後檢討,相信是右轉綠燈尚未亮起,前車便開動,我們只管習慣地跟隨而未有多加留意真實環境所致。

且看財爺在宣讀新一個財政年度預算案前夕,大家同樣習慣覺得盈餘滿瀉,但恐怕難分享太多甜頭,繼續讓庫房膨脹。

不過,他突於公布預算案前推新樓市辣招,更將戰線伸延至工商舖。正當政府收入來源不夠多元化,稅基狹窄之際,財爺開徵買家印花稅,又將工商舖印花稅擴大一倍,變相擴闊稅基,應記一功。

當然,每宗交投的稅收或許增多,但真實情況是,交投會否減少而令整體印花稅下降,而一直依靠這種不穩定的稅收結構,又對政府的收入來源帶來甚麼影響,值得深思,且看他會對印花稅收入作何種估計,即使每次政府也猜錯。

另一個有趣的事件,當然是財爺公布新招前數天,長江實業(001)突拆售雍澄軒房間,引發軒然大波,特別是推出時間的敏感問題,難免讓人覺得如此巧合,就是為了避開新稅,但為了一個14億元的項目而押上名譽,值得嗎?不怕反映出同政府「對著幹」的訊息嗎?

另一個問號是,為何選擇這種銷售方式?同新西蘭回流的公關大姐大談起,她話這種出售酒店房間的做法在當地很普遍,特別是在當地皇后鎮(Queenstown)便有這類投資產品,包括服服式住宅和度假村等,同樣由酒店管理人負責營運,買家當然要清楚知道銷售條款。

她話投資這類產品同樣有風險,以當地為例,也有傳統旅遊淡旺季之分,況且毗鄰的澳洲旅遊花費相對較便宜,競爭力自然被削弱,若碰上經濟差時,收入難免受影響。不過,她話購買意欲分分鐘是一個衝動的行為,如有朋友本來想往文華買地氈,怎知走錯樓層,誤入一個酒店房間銷售項目的推廣活動,還購了一個單位。首兩年朋友也愛新鮮,抽空前往度假,之後已未有下聞。

其實,政府是否經已有相關政策準備好監管這類投資產品呢?若果已準備充足,為何弄得如此混亂呢?
