    Why bother? It'll just come off next months bill. Given the time it takes to move red tape I doubt you would get a refund any faster.

    Another good thing about living in HK. Keep it in mind when the pollution bugs you next time.

    they will not refund it back to you immediately

    don't worry, the money will not suddenly disappeared in your hkelectic and towngas accounts.

    Same happened to me with the tunnel toll. No need to pay for quite a few month.

    What exactly are you referring to? That money doesn't just disappear?

    That seems organised. Clearing bills way upfront to save the hassle later.

    Just that every city/country has its plus and negative sides. So if the pollution is bugging you or you feel annoyed with HK, keep this nice little benefit about utility companies being efficient in mind...
