Corporate Income Tax In Thailand
Unfortunately, even in Thailand one has to pay taxes, but happily not at the high rates prevailing in your home country. Corporate Income Tax in Thailand is a direct tax levied on a juristic company or partnership which is established under Thai or foreign law, and which carries on business in Thailand, or derives certain types of income from Thailand.
The term “Juristic company or partnership” (hereafter referred to as ‘company’) applies to all limited companies, limited partnerships and registered ordinary partnerships incorporated under Thai or foreign law, as well as associations and foundations that produce revenue.
Any joint venture and any trading or profit-seeking activity carried on by a foreign government or its agency, or by any other juristic body incorporated under a foreign law is also included under the term.
