In line with the phased resumption of public services announced by the Government on April 28, the Inland Revenue Department announced today (April 29) that it will resume its normal public services from May 4. Details of the opening hours of its various offices can be found in the department's website at www.ird.gov.hk/eng/cu_ol.htm.
In light of public health considerations, all visitors entering or remaining in the department's premises are required to wear surgical masks. Any visitor who does not wear a surgical mask will not be served and will be asked to leave the department's premises.
To reduce social contact, the department encourages the public to contact it by telephone, send documents to it by post and use its electronic services to handle their tax matters as much as possible. A list of such services can be found in the department's website at www.ird.gov.hk/eng/ese/index.htm.
For enquiries, please call the department's hotline at 187 8088 during office hours.
