  1. None of the check points I drove through in the last few days had any activity on the road by those tasked with manning the check points. All the action was under the roadside tent where I saw eating, tv watching, selfie taking, sleeping etc. What's their purpose and what are they enforcing?
  2. How to get the money in the Thai account to get the visa when you first need the visa to open the Thai bank account? Chicken and egg? Sent from my [device_name] using http://Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. 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.
  4. So maybe my local allowances can be the local income and my overseas salary stays off the radar.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. NIST and St Andrews Suk 71

    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
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
