4. One of the partners has a separate employment, and mandatory contributions (for a MPF scheme) have been made by him both in the capacity of a self-employed person and an employee. How should tax deductions be claimed under profits tax?

In other words, the aggregate amount to be deducted for that partner in respect of MPF contributions should not exceed $18,000 in any year.
