Please reread it it is there. And read police order 138/255 7 July 2014

You reading the same document above? Because the reason section isn't stating that, it only mentions the people eligible and the 1 yr extension. Then gives the documents required and the procedures, none of which includes the 400K/800K method. You're taking it as an amendment, and even then it reference 2.18 and 2.22, thus effectively replacing them under any normal way of handling this.

From the OP: 

‘The new requirements state that applicants must be able to show income transferred into a Thai bank account.’
This is misleading and not a requirement in the many cases where Embassies still issue the income declarations.

Read the translation, embassy letters are included.

The following is a hyphothetical scenario:  

 

In the not too distant future.

 

30 Days before Retirement Extension expires  A Visa Agent calls his/her client and asks “Do you want to do extension”?.  The Client replies “ I do not have the seasoned 800K Baht and I did not make the 12 International Wire Transfers”.

 

A) The Agent will reply “Sorry I can’t help you”

B) The Agent says “come to office and talk”

 

I believe their will be a way.  TIT

You do NOT have to show total monthly income from your rentals, shares or anything. All you need to show is 65k going into a Thai bank account from out of the country. Easy.

Not easy. I'm not going to sidetrack this thread, except to say I bing in aud cash in one or two hits every year. I'm aware of various ways to transfer money. The best is to bring in cash and exchange here. Only suited to those that have reason to visit home country.
