  1. CRS form from HSBC

    I got my TIN number today, but they did not want to give me one without a letter from the bank stating why they needed it. Luckily enough I once had a company many years ago in Bangkok. They were able to trace the company and therefore my TIN. What a waste of time and energy. Thanks to all those who have contributed to this thread, especially Partington, you are a very wise man sir!!
  2. CRS form from HSBC

    Bad news for me. Even with my relationship manager battling for my side HSBC will not let this go, even though I have pointed out that Thailand has not signed up for CRS. They have suggested I hire a tax advisor at my expense of course. I am resigned to going to get a TIN from the tax office today, but then should I send them that and my NI number or will that confuse things even more?
  3. My wife is with me for the money.

    My wife has a son, 23 he has never lived with us but can be a real pain in the ass when he wants to be, my wife sheds more tears over him than anything else
  4. My wife is with me for the money.

  8. Heart attack....best hospital..?

    Or if you prefer your GP. Dr.Morgan at Health Care Medical Clinic does my once a year check -ups
  9. The truck driver must have been blind not to have seen him, was probably on his mobile phone. I hope they catch him and throw the book at him Then driving away over the poor chap just adds insult to injury (no pun intended) but it beggars belief how someone can do such a thing

    Not really interested mate
  11. New Visa Agency at Promenada Mall

    The amount of paperwork we have to generate is astounding. They must need an aircraft hanger to store it all, or maybe they burn it all once a year, hence the burning season, it's not the farmers at all it's all the documentation we have generated going up in smoke!!!
  12. Heart attack....best hospital..?

    Actually I think it's good to know things like this. If you live in Hang Dong ,CM Ram or Siripat are about the same distance so it's worth knowing which one is gonna give you a better chance of survival. But a hospital like Klaimoor can't handle heart attacks, would send you to Ram.....is what happened to me 5 or 6 years ago
  13. New Visa Agency at Promenada Mall

    I really don't think that there is any need for posters to be known as agent bashers or line bashers. We are stuck with only two possibilities when it comes to our visas. Line up early and don't pay for the services of an agent Pay an agent to line up on your behalf and you just make a cameo appearance and off you go. All my friends do one or the other, we discuss it but we don't fall out over our various ways of obtaining our visas EACH TO HIS OWN. This is an argument that nobody can win. Some say you are making it worse by lining up early, others say you are making it worse by paying agents. Either way Immigration wins. Thats it my friends, "to pay or not to pay that is the question" There will be no solution on this thread, so why bother?.

  15. Heart attack....best hospital..?
