Work permit for second employment in Thai visas, residency and work permits Posted November 5, 2020 23 hours ago, ubonjoe said: You can pay the taxes even if your income for the year is enough to require it. That was my assumption and was a bit surprised by this response from the accountant. As this accountant doesn't have much experience with situations like ours, I think her first reaction was something like why would you pay more taxes than you need to. My wife contacted her back and explained more clearly what we needed and she agreed to do it for us. We are in Lampang, so the accountants here just don't have much exposure to farang employment. For the time being, things are back on track. Thanks again for you quick responses and great advice, @ubonjoe.
