Apply for deposit refund

By default, your deposit refund should be used for your final bill or returned automatically. Learn when and how to apply for a deposit refund.

Upon account termination, the deposit will be used to offset any final electricity charges. The balance will then be refunded to the duly registered customer* by cheque or Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) directly to your bank account.

Who should apply

You should apply for a deposit refund if your account was closed automatically and your initial security deposit was more than your final bill.

How to apply

To apply for a deposit refund, please present the following required documents:

  • All deposit receipts*;
  • A photocopy of your Hong Kong Identity Card or Business Registration Certificate (if applicable);
  • [Electronic Fund Transfer only] A copy of your bank record showing your bank name and account number.

* If you have lost your deposit receipt(s), please fill in a Deposit Refund Form (Form L) (PDF) and return it to us.
