  1. Next time maybe use a 2nd (legal) passport from your homecountry
  2. First thing i would ask why TIN is needed. If needed because of crs then provide them with the OECD lines above. OECD is the organisation that has blueprinted the whole process that is now being implemented by the countries. Tell them that you dont need a tin because you dont work in Thailand and capital income outside of Thailand is expemted from thai tax. (Big surprise for the average bank clerk :-) ) On the other hand it should not be too difficult to obtain a tin but why alert thai authorities. In any case no information will be sent to Thailand as TH has not joined the crs system. Good luck!
  3. There is a misunderstanding from your bank, there is no need to obtain a TIN if you live in Thailand (outside EU) http://www.oecd.org/tax/automatic-exchange/common-reporting-standard/CRS-related-FAQs.pdf Same banks dont understand just provide them with the above pdf. Worked for me (Germany). 5. Requirement to collect TINs Paragraph 30 of the Commentary on Section I provides that a TIN is not required to be reported with respect to a Reportable Account held by a Reportable Person with respect to whom a TIN has not been issued. Should a Financial Institution request a Reportable Person to obtain and provide a TIN, in case such Reportable Person is or may be eligible to obtain a TIN (or the functional equivalent) in its jurisdiction of residence, but is not required to obtain a TIN and has not obtained a TIN? No
  4. Thanks for your post 4evermaat! Yes I am willing to pay north of 50.000 Baht; Paid 80.000 Baht in Pattaya per month for 1 year rental. Private pool is a must have for me, only optional if the beach is 100m away. The resorts you listed are more geared towards shorter stays in my opinion. I have troubles finding any offerings outside of Patts, Bangkok or Phuket which as cities are to busy for me. I am quite open to general location of the villa. I learned that Chiang Mai has a serions smog problem which is also a nogo for me. Thanks for any info!
  5. Thanks for the great information! Are there any long term pool villa rentals possible in this area? I am looking for something in the 200 or 300 sqm range with a big pool where u cant be seen and large plot. Planung to move in 2018 or 2019 to Thailand. I was living in Pattaya on the dark side before. Thanks in advance!
  6. Is Thailand really cheap?

    As the largest amount of our budgets goes to renting a place, how would some of you recommend to find a place? I have so far found some websites like bahtandsold or real estate agency offerings but most of them ask for fantasy prices. I have been driving around as well in some areas of Thailand but did not find many interesting offers. Was on the lookout in Khao Lak for example and was quoted prices like 90.000 Baht for 90m2 beachfront apartment and 300.000 Baht for 300m2 House. In the end I found absolutely nothing by driving around nor on the internet. One poster quoted 10.000 Baht for a Pattaya Villa that he managed to find. I was renting for 80.000 Baht/months a very nice pool villa on the east side after searching for several weeks. I am very open to rent in the sticks. How would you recommend to find good offers? Maybe I return to Thailand in the next 3 Years so it is not imminent. Thanks for any advise!
