Since the billing account number of each tax bill is different, you must call 18013 to register your bill before paying, and then call 18033 to pay the tax. The business number of the Hongkong  Inland Revenue Department is “10”.

由于每张税单的收款账号都不相同,所以须在付款前先行致电 18013 登记账单,然后致电 18033 交税。税务局的商户编号为「10」。

ATM Payment 


You can use the HSBC and Hang Seng Bank ATMs to pay. Just bring your bill to any HSBC or Hang Seng Bank ATM with the “Payment Service” logo and choose “Payment Service” to pay. If necessary, please keep the receipt as proof of payment.

  • Mailing cash or promissory notes will not be accepted. 


  • Make sure that the delivery time and postage are sufficient to deliver. Letters with insufficient postage will not be accepted.
