You will need a Tax ID card if you have a Thai company or are working in Thailand. The tax ID card shows you are a taxpayer in Thailand. You apply for a Thai Tax ID card at the Revenue Department. This will have a tax ID number which you will use often in the future. Make sure your employer provides you with your Thailand Tax ID card soon after you begin to work in Thailand.
Before leaving your current job, it is essential for you to obtain your tax payers card, your tax return (completed form) and paid tax receipts from your place of work. It is your responsibility to ask for these items and your employers responsibility to provide them to you in a timely manner.
