The Financial Services & the Treasury Bureau today announced that four more government departments will accept payments through the Faster Payment System (FPS).

Starting today, FPS QR code devices will be available for use at designated counters and self-help kiosks of the Companies Registry, the Immigration Department, the Official Receiver’s Office and the Transport Department.

Altogether seven government departments now accept payments through the FPS.

The public can simply scan the FPS QR codes generated by the devices using mobile banking applications or e-wallets of stored value facility operators that support payments of the government fees and charges through FPS QR codes.

The FPS was launched in September 2018. As of November this year, it has recorded 6.54 million registrations and processed 160 million real-time transactions involving a total of about HK$1,900 billion and RMB34 billion.

The Government has since November last year accepted tax payments, rates and government rent, and water charges through the FPS.
