Latest arrangements of Inland Revenue Department public services

     In view of the extension of the special work arrangements for government departments to March 1, the Inland Revenue Department announced today (February 22) that from February 24 it will continue to suspend the provision of all of its services, except for the following:

Offices Opening hours
Central Enquiry Counter
(only for enquiries relating to tax clearance for taxpayers leaving Hong Kong)
From 9am to noon,
Monday to Friday
Business Registration Office From 9am to noon and 1:30pm to 4pm,
Monday to Friday
Stamp Office From 9am to noon and 1:30pm to 4pm,
Monday to Friday

     The department appeals to members of the public for their understanding that the above services will only be provided at a much reduced scale and that services in all other areas will not be provided at the service counters. They should also be prepared to experience a longer waiting time before they can be served. The department encourages the public to use its electronic services to handle their tax affairs as much as possible. A list of such services can be found in the department's website at

     The department further announced that deadlines for tax payments, lodgement of objections and holdover applications as well as submission of tax returns and information that fall between January 29 and March 1 will be automatically extended to March 2.

     The department will review the situation and make further announcements as necessary.
