    Company owned house - City Hall TAX

    I wonder if the knowledgable people on this forum would be kind enough to advise the correctness of my understanding of the law. 1 a chanot for a condo is not the same as a chanote for land. A condo chanote will always include the cost of the condo, but a land chanote may not include the value of the buildings on it. 2 It is perfectly legal to lease land and then build on it, and the lessee can be the owner of the building, and further a foreigner may be the owner of the building. 3 owner of land is defined by the chanote, house registration is not relevant. 4 owner of the building is defined by who paid for it, again house registratioion is not relevant. 5 a tax on the company is always paid by the company, never by a shareholder. This is relevant as it will go in the company accounts as an expense and therefore reduce any profit. This obviously does not include the company tax on profits.
  4. Not very common. Going rate is 10% to 20% per month.

    Remarkable spitting cobra clip

    No, My understanding is that the spitting cobras aim at the eyes and face and are on target 80% of the time, they can bite, my guess is when the face is not visible. Other cobras just bite.

    Remarkable spitting cobra clip

    My housekeeper got the pu yay baan to come over. He tried to catch it but it got away. It has been seen again 500 or so meters away from my house. For he who asked if it really spits you can see the venom on the glass of the window.

    Another picture
  8. This spitting Cobra arrived on my verandah hunting toads and was bitten by one of my dogs which got its eyes sprayed. It happened while i was away in New Zealand so my poor housekeeper had to deal with it. She managed to wash the dogs eyes and get it to a vet for injection and eye drops and the dog is ok. First time i have seen a cobra of any sort on my property as i keep geese to keep them away. It is clearly very angry, can’t blame it after a substantial bite from the dog hahaha. Can anyone give me a definite identity of this snake? It is clearly a spitting cobra but i find it hard to identify exactly. 4A61DD66-1F1B-42EC-9C43-681E8B0B3240.mp4

    I just want to know what I am getting into

    Agreed, wait til the baby is born and get a DNA test. Make sure that you arrange the test yourself, it is not unknown for DNA results to be purchased.
  10. You are talking nonsense. I know several Thai men who have paid dowry to wife with child. I even know a thai man who left his wife and returned twice, and had to pay three dowries. I have no doubt there are areas of Thailand where what you. say is true, but not in areas i know which include parts of Isaan and Bangkok. I am also,shocked that this man has never received treatment. It is as if he had never passed in view of a medicaal doctor. Of course he may have refused treatment but that seems unlikely.

    5G SmartGrid Rollout

    Curious to know how it can fake off when I turn everything off at the wall switch when I finished watching. I have done this for years to save power.
  14. I always thought this was true but my daughter who is a qualified solicitor says it is not, all she could rely on his support for the children
  15. I am a Kiwi living in thailand more than 20years age 73. I have never applied for NZ pension because i think i read somewhere that you have to have worked in NZ at least one year after age 50. I also know that years ago you could only stay out of New Zealand for 13 weeks before you lost the pension. But I believe I have read nowadays once you’re entitled to the pension you can live where you like. Any New Zealanders no more than this?
