Electronic General Demand Note Service


The Government aims to provide the electronic general demand note (e-GDN) service, in respect of the existing hardcopy mode of General Demand Note (GDN), by phases starting from late March 2010. The participating bureaux/departments (b/ds) will invite their users to opt for receiving GDNs by electronic means. You may refer to the List of Issuing Offices of the Bureaux / Departments providing e-GDN.

To apply for enjoying the e-GDN service, if your selected issuing office of the b/ds accepts online registration, you can register through the MyGovHK website or iAM Smart Mobile App and follow the steps provided on screen to complete the registration process through online mode. Alternatively, you may download and complete the Registration Form for e-GDN Service (Form) (PDF format / 793 KB / 2 pages), and then submit the duly signed Form to the issuing office of the participating b/ds.

Through e-GDN Accounts in the Government's webpage, users can view and download anytime and anywhere their e-GDNs and related messages, attachments, payment information, etc.

e-GDN Account Summary (Sample)

When b/ds issue e-GDNs or reminders to users' e-GDN Accounts, notifications via e-mail and/or SMS will be sent to the users in accordance with their instructions. If users registered their e-GDN Accounts via online registration or already linked up the existing e-GDN Accounts with MyGovHK Accounts, alert messages will also be sent to users’ MyGovHK message boxes. Notification by SMS and/or Email

By opting for e-GDN service, users can enjoy efficient, convenient and flexible electronic services. Most importantly, it is friendly to our environment by reducing paper waste.
