  1. True Visions

    Just a warning to True Visions subscribers about something that I believe is completely unethical behaviour. I have been a subscriber for more than 10 years and have the Platinum package. Just after the HBO channels were removed I phoned to cancel my subscription. I few days later I was contacted and offered a price reduction to just over 1,200 baht which I accepted and continue to subscribe. I was never told this was for a limited period. Yesterday (18 Feb) I received a bill for January of 2,259.89. I phoned the call center today to ask whether this was an error because a had not been advised of any price increase. I was told that I had been given a promotional price for six month which went back to the old price on 1 January. Obviously I cancelled again but was told they expected me to pay to increased rate from 1 Jan to the date of cancellation. Has anyone else experienced this. Any suggestions?
  2. I arrived at Suvarnbhumi early this morning. I have just realised that there is no departure card in the passport - not sure if it was not returned to me or has fallen out. The manager our condo says that they need the number of the departure card to do the required address notification. What do i need to do? Will Jomtien immigration give me a replacement card?
  3. Thanks. That is where i found an English translation of an out of date version but i cannot a translation for the 2559 form.
  4. I have no income in Thailand other than Interest and dividends. Every year I claim back the tax deducted from the interest and dividends. In previous years I have just taken the tax certificates to the Tax office (the one in Jomtien) and very helpful staff have completed the required tax form for me. However, this time i was just told that they could not complete the forms for me and gave me the 2559 (2016) form 90 to complete. My question is does anyone know where I could find an English version of the form. I found translation of the 2014 version of the form on the revenue department website but there have been some changes. Alternatively does anyone use an accountant/lawyer to make this type of tax refund claim on there behalf? If so could they recommend someone and let me know how many they pay.
  5. Yes Income earned in Thailand is subject to Thai income tax
  6. Not very impressive discounts anyway. I have just booked business class on Qatar to Londo. - which I think is superior to Emirates - for 72,500 baht
  7. Broke Bird: Nok Air lost 3 billion baht in 2016

    Profit at Thai AirAsia more than doubled to 1.8 billion baht. Bangkok Airways profit fell slightly to also about 1.8 billion baht and Thai made a small profit following a very large loss in 2015.
