Q: Is there a Lloyds TSB branch in Hong Kong? Or any other British bank for that matter?

So I'm gonna be spending a few days in Hong Kong after travelling around SE Asia for a few weeks. Basically when I leave China I hope to have enough cash on me to last for my SE Asia travels, and then take out some more when I get to HK to fund my HK trip (after which I will be heading to Japan). 

 

I don't wanna have to carry loads of cash around SE Asia though am also a bit worried about charges if I withdraw money out from my British bank via HK. How would you do this? I also have a Chinese bank account so maybe just keep money in there and withdraw it when I get to HK?

 

Thanks users, thusers.

There is HSBC in Hong Kong, and 4 other UK Banks as I can see from the listing of all HK Banks:

I guess, it is better (cheaper) to hold money on Chinese bank, and get funds out in HK, than use UK Bank.

A:Its socially accepted tax evasion. Many companies will actually tax your salary less if you can produce a certain amount of fa piao every month.

Most if not all companies ask workers to pay all of their expenses up front and then give fa piao in order to get the money back.

The problem is that getting fa piaos from businesses isnt always easy so people need to collect them.

Often some middle manager will need to pay for a company dinner or something. When its time to pay the bill they are told that they cannot recieve reciepts. ( as the restaurant doesnt wanna pay taxes). So this guy has to eat the bill unless he can find some reciepts from another friends dinner or something.

Its all harmless and pretty common. If you have no use for it let them have it. -- mike695ca
