  1. No, they need to stop talking about contraception. Just give every mother of a new born Thai child 50,000 baht cash. 300,000 extra babies a year would be 15 billion paid out. That's a lot of money, but not an impossible amount.
  2. Marriage Affidavit Translation

    The going rate for translation is about 300-400 baht per page for this type of document.
  3. @DJ54 Out of interest, how much money are we talking about?
  4. Certified as a true copy - ?

    It means you have to sign the copy yourself. As simple as that.
  5. You may be asked to provide a written guarantee to cover your stepson's fidelity. They want to make sure you are good for it.
  6. HSE doesn't really exist in many companies. However employees do have 30 statutory sick days with full pay. Generally if the absence rate increases a lot the problem will get fixed.
  7. Where to buy a simple metal frame for bed box springs?

    Use concrete blocks. If the appearance bothers you then paint them first.
  8. Could someone give me the address of the Special Branch office in Bangkok where you apply for citizenship please, and any tips about how to find the office itself. Thanks.
  9. Small pool hall

    It's nice to have someone listen, rather than just crack on regardless then complain bitterly when it all goes wrong. Best of luck wirh your search. You clearly have the right attitude to find what you are looking for.
  10. money laundering seems to be the norm

    Do you think that's a good thing, a bad thing, or like most people you couldn't care less?
  11. He can, but in doing so he would become financially responsible for the child.
  12. You can scan and upload. You can also take it to your local revenue office. You may need some assistance unless your written Thai is good as the whole site is in Thai.
  13. Does anyone have any experience with this please? We are buying shares of a Thai limited company from foreign nationals. Some of the foreign nationals are tax resident in Thailand, and some are not. We are aware that we have to deduct 15 per cent from the price we pay for the shares, but are there any exemptions from this? Or is the simplest answer to deduct the 15 per cent, discharge our liability and then let the individuals in question make a claim for a tax refund?
  14. Wrong. When you are in Thailand you are subject to Thai law. Thai law states that male Thai citizens over 21 must go through the military draft process. If the military discovers you are a Thai citizen and you have not completed the draft process, they can insist you go through the process. Being British does not exempt you. Entering Thailand on a British passport does not exempt you. In fact, the UK embassy will not offer you any assistance at all because they will not interfere between the dealings of a dual national and their second country. However, the likelihood of being discovered if you use a British passport to enter Thailand is very small. Immigration will not know who you are, your Thai ID number, or anything else (unless you tell them). If you only speak English then they will have problems. Don't forget that there are people with Thai ancestry but without Thai citizenship. Foreigners come to Thailand every year trying to claim their citizenship because their parents didn't obtain citizenship for them when they were children.
