TAX ON FUND REPATRIATION


TAX ON CAPITAL GAIN


TAX ON OWNERSHIP

Also called “Land and House Tax”

  • NO TAX
  • Taxes only apply for houses or any other type of standalone building

TAX ON RENTAL INCOME

  • In theory, the tax amounts 15% of the annual rental income if the owner is a foreigner (5% if Thai company)
  • In practice, the tax doesn’t apply as the income is self-declared, and most tenants are individuals who don’t request a receipt for the payment of the rent
