  1. Hi does anyone know what the ramifications are if you do not submit the 1/2 yearly tax form due in Sept but do submit the annual form in March? Is it really required?
  2. Buying apartment in Udon Thani

    make sure you check foreign ownership in the complex you decide upon cant be over 49%
  3. Does immigration do house visits for retirement visa? If so how often does this occur? Is the for everyone or do they just select random?
  4. airbnb, first experience not so good! beware

    I have used airbnb many times but only once in Bangkok. It was only for 3 day stay so not a lot at risk. I did not have any problems. My payment was via Airbnb system no extra asked for. I also use Trip advisor a fair bit always check out what Airbnb and TripAdvisor have on offer for the location I am looking at.
  5. Opening a Thai Bank Account- New Policy?

    Opened a new account yesterday at kk bank in Bangkok. We wanted new account in single name for retirement visa. Initially they told us that without the retirement visa stamp in passport or work permit they would not open new account New Head Office rule. I asked how do we get retirement visa without having 800k in bank account? Just told new rule. We already had joint account with another branch of KK bank. eventually got them to open account after proving we owned a condo. they filled in all paperwork and then said they needed HO approval which took about 20 min to occur
  6. Not sure what the Thai legal obligations are however the Condo should have insurance protecting the office bearers, we have 2 farang's who are on the juristic committee for our condo block and they have not mentioned any negatives with being on the committee. I see this as a positive as you will be able to ensure pro active maintenance and you have more insight into the actual running on your condo block. If we were going to spend longer periods in Thailand I would consider nominating as it is one way of ensuring your asset is maintained and keep eye on the Juristic office managers. Obviously you would need to consider who the other two owners are going to be to ensure you will be able to work with them.

    So can you log into your account details online in order to see the bill?
  8. Paying electric bill online?

  9. Special Privileges for Thaivisa Customers at ShowDC in Bangkok

    Has anyone been yet?. Would be good to get some feedback if the trip is worthwhile
  10. Hope you took photos of the damage for proof later just in case they say damage was worse than it actually was. I agree with earlier post if you let them know you are going to the tax office to make sure all taxes have been paid may assist your cause, Good Luck
  11. Should we change to AIS?

    Thank you to all of you who replied, we have gone ahead and signed up with AIS and they came and installed and set up the box. Service so far has been very good, Only problem we have now is that we cant work out how to remove the subtitles from the movies. Any guidance from those who are currently using AIS would be greatly appreciated Thanks
  12. Should we change to AIS?

    Hi We have been told that our agent who lets our apartment out for us when we are not in town that the current internet we are using with TOT is very outdated and that we should change to AIS which will give us internet plus, one mobile connection and cable tv for same price as TOT intent /landline as we are not tech savi just reaching out to the Thai Visa guys for some advice/guidance, our questions are: Any feed back from those of you already using AIS - are you happy.with AIS,? How do we cancel TOT we have been paying by the month for about 5 years now so assume we could just email or call them to cancel - not sure if there is issues here with cancelling the contract? Does anyone know if you can suspend the service when you are out of the country and/or pay reduced rate? Appreciate your guidance. Thanks
  13. Onions for Sale - Bangkok taken with my iphone
  14. Oh okay, but I see they can issue the 60 day visa but not the retirement OA visa, which needs to be issued in Canberra. Thanks for clarification.
  15. thanks Steve, I have just been on the Thai Embassy site and see they now have Embassy in Perth - last time we applied we had to send our passports to Canberra -- thought I would mention this as other members from WA may not be aware that we now have a Thai Embassy located in West Perth - not sure how long they have been based in Perth. Also, I see it is actually cheaper to apply for a 60day visa that seek extension in Bangkok which Ubonjoe mentioned cost 1900baht = roughly $73 yet the 60 day visa here cost $45. not a lot of money but that's two massages each. I will take the cheaper option and apply here as I don't want to risk boarding issues. Thanks again for the info.
