Hong Kong: IRD provides limited services

Due to the extended special work arrangements for government departments, the Inland Revenue Department today announced the latest arrangement for its services.

From February 17, all services of the department will be suspended except the Business Registration Office, the Stamp Office and the Central Enquiry Counter, which will run from 9am to noon from Monday to Friday.

The above services will only be provided at a much-reduced scale and services in other areas will not be provided at service counters.

The department advised the public to use its electronic services to handle tax matters.

Deadlines for tax payments, lodgement of objections and holdover applications, and submission of tax returns and information that fall between January 29 and February 23 will also be extended to February 24.
