Salaries, together with successful reimbursement/payment of allowances (e.g. passage & baggage, housing, etc.), are paid monthly through autopayments by the University's two principal bankers (Hang Seng Bank and Bank of China) to the bank accounts of individual staff members.

For new appointees, their first month's salary will only be payable upon (i) confirmation of their assumption of duty by the Department in writing; (ii) input of their personnel record in the HR computer system; and (iii) provision of their bank account number for auto-pay on submitting the completed Personal Information Record Form. In case payment of their first month's salary could not be made on the normal salary payday of the month, it will be made payable together with their salary payment on the second month.

There is a payroll cut-off date every month which usually falls around the middle of the month. Requests for payment and reimbursement which reach the Finance Office before the payroll cut-off date will usually be included in the month-end auto-payment of the same month. The payday is normally two working days before the last day of the month.

You may access the staff Intranet for the online e-payslips of each month issued by the Finance Office.

If you wish to change your bank account for salary payment or other personal data, please inform the Human Resources Office immediately.
