  3. Put a Wi-Fi hotspot in there and 4 months won't be a problem. [emoji6] Hope they get out soon, one way or the other. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  5. That's why I normally only read the visa section.Too much crap on the other sections. Poor humanity. A shame really. :( Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  7. If they deduct 3 points for dui, will you need to pay a fine also? Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  8. Maybe this isn't the right place to ask and if so, please delete or move the post. As many of you know, Iglu is an umbrella company approved by the BOI. People with the right skills can get a work permit and use their co-working spaces, although for a hefty fee. Yes, I know PIT, etc is included, but if you do the calculations, the fee is still heavy especially if you don't make use of their co-working spaces. So my question: does Iglu has competitors who have lower fees (and are legal also) and where can I find them. Kind regards, ED.
  9. They probably pay the same fees, but maybe they don't have the overhead Iglu has with their co-working spaces. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  10. I made the calculation and I'm fully aware the Iglu fee includes PIT etc... Their fee is substantial, especially if you don't use their co-working spaces. But I can't blame them. So do you know of any Iglu competitors? And please, spare me your sarcasm.
  11. Yeah, that's steep. Especially if you don't need/use their co-working spaces. Any alternative umbrella company you know?
  12. Are there others than Iglu? If so, which ones?
  13. Well, did anyone tried it first hand, that's what I wonder? It's a case by case decission, so maybe people just don't know about it. Anyway worth some investigation time imo. :) Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  14. Well, I just came across an older posting (nov 2016) on FB in a Thai related group and a supposedly knowledgeable person wrote the following: "Normally requesting Work Permit in order to have a Non-B Visa requires a company's information. However, freelance shall be considered as "working" in Thailand under the Foreign Business Act also. Therefore, working as a freelance in Thailand shall be able to obtain Work Permit. I have checked records in requesting WP for freelance and it appears that there are case-by-case obtain a WP. It depends on the officer’s discretion regarding the type of work. You can submit the application requesting for WP together with relevant all documents about your freelance work (Such as the license (if any), plan of your services, etc.) to the officer for consideration at Work Permit Division, the Labor Department. If your request is approved, it would be a temporarily until the time that you renew your WP and the officer can check that you have paid tax." So it seems it could be possible... but I'm guessing no one tried it?
