  1. As non resident do the progressive tax rates still apply, but without the allowances and deductions, or is a 15% rate applied to all income? I've seen both mentioned on different websites.
  2. So maybe my local allowances can be the local income and my overseas salary stays off the radar.
  3. Thanks. I'd be on a spouse visa, which will allow my company to get a work permit. All above board and legal. It's just with my salary still being off shore and being less than 180 days in country in 2017 I wasn't sure whether or would be liable for tax if it stays off shore.
  4. Yes for the work permit. So the overseas income would be taxable even though it stays overseas. That's what I'd expect but from the way the regulations are worded it could be interpreted otherwise.
  5. If I move to Thailand this year for work (and am in Thailand less than 180 days) and continue to be paid by my company overseas, am I liable for tax in Thailand on that income received (and not remitted to Thailand)? The company will pay me some local allowances for accommodation which I assume will be taxed in Thailand.
  6. Really? I enquired in KTB recently and they said not a chance on a tourist visa. I also heard driving license is not possible on TV also.
  7. Apply for a new passport asap and wear the overstay fee. I don't know what else you can do with only 3 months left.
  8. Thanks Goinghomesoon. NIST have no intake left for when we'd need our eldest to start so we've had to strike that from our list. Bangkok Prep seems to also get good reviews. If anyone else has feedback it would be appreciated. Sent from my SM-A720F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  9. Just looking at schools in Bangkok for a possible move to Thailand. Does anyone have any recent experience at either of these schools in primary years? Quality of facilities and education, mix of nationalities etc.
  10. That's good to know. Without a visa i can't open an account in Thailand so didn't know how I'd show funds in an account to get the visa! Sent from my SM-A720F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. Re the 400k, can this be: equivalent currency in an account outside Thailand evidenced by a bank statement? Or can proof of income outside Thailand also be used, if so, do I need a stat dec from embassy or will payslips suffice? Currently outside of Thailand and would like to get the 12 month multi entry spouse visa straight off the bat.
  12. My wife is Thai, I am Australian. Both our children were born outside Thailand. We have Thai birth certificates for both of them (issued by the Thai embassy in their countries of birth) and they have Thai passports (they are both dual nationals, as is my wife). We do not live in Thailand but visit frequently. My wife and children always enter Thailand using their Thai passports. Question - we have not registered the children on the House Registration Book (Tabien Bann) in Thailand. Do we need to and if so why? My understanding has always been that its not necessary unless we reside in Thailand. If and when we move to Thailand longer term we would do this. However, my wife now suggests that we do it on our next trip to Thailand (as friends in a similar position to us have done so). My wife is still listed on the tabien baan for her parents address, so it should easily be done I'm just not sure on the necessity to do so right now. Are there any benefits, or possible future issues, if we do or don't do this now?
