Well I don't know of any agents who will take card. On day of signature of provisional sale and purchase agreement don't you have to hand over a cheque?

Stamp duty - how do you get the shroff number? Unless (through your agent) you have access to e-stamp http://www.ird.gov.hk/eng/tax/e_stamp.htm#a2 and can get a shroff number from that.

Paying 600K stamp duty on a 8M flat may yield you 36K miles. Tho I really haven't heard of anyone who did
