  1. MrJ

    early repay of car loan

    update - as quoted earlier got conformation from Kasikorn Leasing, I only have to pay 50% of the total interests + outstanding balance and 1.300 THB to change the name in the book - so in total I save about 19.500 THB interests, but this was not the reason for me, I just got some additional funds and want peace of mind and the loan of my shoulders.... thanks all for the feedback

    location is Soi17 Theprasit behind Rompo Market/View Talay2 and another store at the bypass Pattaya side between Soi 87 and Kao Thalo, the machines are from Taiwan but under Swiss supervision.

    http://www.x-trend.com/en/startseite.html I really can recommend X-trend Pattaya, run by a Swiss/Thai couple, very good quality (2 years warranty and every 3 month scheduled free service), great consultancy and after sales service, I bought 3 machines 2.5 years ago and all still top. not cheap though (treadmill about 60K) but you get what you pay for. They sell 2nd hand machines as well. I would not trust the machines at Bic C, Tesco, also the Marathon (shop opposite Bangkok Pattaya Hospital) stuff haven't impressed me once I was checking the market......and finally settled for X trend There is even one more upscale shop on Sukhumvit near Chayaprueck 1 corner http://www.searasports.com/contact/thailand/pattaya/
  5. Hi All, my car is financed with Kasikorn Leasing, total 60 months - now after 1.5 years I want to pay the outstanding amount at once. Does anyone have experience with that? Shouldn't be a problem, but don't want to pay additional fees..... Thanks

    Car accident, looking for some advice.

    sorry for the trouble - your / rental car 1st class insurance should deal with all parties including the police, but at the end of the day "the accident wouldn't have been happen if you would stay in Thailand but in your home country" especial car vs motorbike

    Reputable pharmacy that will not rip me off

    exactly what i do as well
  11. "Note that severance pay is subject to different taxation allowances than normal pay." thanks - do you have any details regarding the taxation, I remember a colleague got 10 months but 1 month got lost due to taxes.......
  12. to be clearer - I might get fired sooner or later due to bad business numbers and outlook and would like to know how much pay-off or compensation payment my employee has to pay me after 10 years in the company and if the monthly allowances are calculated as well?
  13. thanks for some valuable replies - yes I have paid more than 10 years the Social Funds of THB 750/month and I am not a teacher, so sound not bad initially the 15.000/months for 1/2 year in addition to the pay-off from my current company but the downside as mentioned already earlier the WP and Visa issue as I am married to a non Thai and would probably have to get a new type of visa e.g. ED first in order to get the funds.....
  14. I got the Citi Bank credit card no fees and no deposit requested - holding WP as well, limit started with 1 month salary and now after 4 years increased to 5 times monthly salary without my request
