  1. Quoting from the Sherrings website: "An exemption from personal income tax for the amounts expended on purchases of goods or services.... 11 Nov to 3 Dec" As an example. Salary 50,000 per month. 600,000 per year If tax rate is 5% tax: 5% x 600,000 = 30,000 tax per annum Deduct this extra 15,000 personal allowance. Now pay 5% x 585,000 = 29,250 tax for the following year. So you would only get a 750 THB tax reduction on spending 15,000? Is my understanding correct?
  2. Does anyone know the process for claiming the 15,000 THB rebate for tax payers.
  3. So I should be OK for a one year non O single entry using my passport expiring in June 2018?
  4. If I apply in November for a 12 month multiple entry non-O on a passport that expires in June 2018. I would apply though one of the consulates. Would they raise an issue that the passport expires before November 2018?
  5. Bad Experience With Uber

    I just tried Uber during a day trip to Penang. Worked very well from and back to the airport. Taxi from the airport would have been 34 MYR, Uber was 11. Journey back was 15 (during rush hour). And no need to negotiate or use cash.
  6. Power line Adapters

    Has anyone experience of using these Zyxel power line adapters to setup a LAN in their home. Our AIS Fibre modem is upstairs and we want to connect it to the TV box downstairs. https://www.zyxel.com/th/th/products_services/home-powerline_and_adapters.shtml?t=c

  8. I am planning to drive to Mukdahan on Sunday 12 November and cross over the border on the Monday to visit the consulate. Stay the night in Savannakhet and collect passport on the Tuesday. Two questions. 1. I have read on this forum that there is a carpark near the bridge but if you have to use the bus to cross the bridge why would you park here? 2. Are there quieter days to go to the consulate. Would Mondays tend to be more busy?
  9. Bad Experience With Uber

    I guess the rating system doesn't help as if you give the driver 1 star for a good reason then they can respond by giving you a 1 star even though you did nothing wrong.
  10. Bad Experience With Uber

    Thats helpful. Thanks.
  11. Bad Experience With Uber

    So no problems with Uber or Grab to go out of the city (and I don't count Suvarnabhumi)?
  12. Bad Experience With Uber

    My niece is staying with us for a few days and has been using Uber to get back to our house in Lamlukka from Bangkok. The first time, the driver dumped her after 10 minutes saying his car had broken down. This was just before entering the expressway at about 5pm. The following day, the driver was again clearly unhappy with the trip but did take her back home. I always thought that drivers knew the passenger's destination before they accepted the fare but my niece says they only find out your destination after they collect you. Is this correct? Would Grabtaxi be a better option for this type of trip? My guess is that drivers don't want to come out this far as they will find it difficult getting a fare back into town.
  13. Thank you for the replies. I am now going on 19 September so may be a bit too early for the Autumn colours. Only four nights. So one night in Sounkyo, two in Shiretoko, last night near Chitose for the flight home. All by rented car.
