A simple way to have assets and protect oneself. Thai partner owns land and gives 3x30 year lease to foreign partner and transfers ownership of buildings. So foreigner has exclusive lease plus ownership of buildings.

Thailand Civil and Commercial Code
Book IV: Marriage

TITLE I
Chapter II
Section 1469

"Any agreement concluded between husband and wife during marriage may be avoided by either of them at any time during marriage or within one year from the day of dissolution of marriage; provided that the right of third persons acting in good faith are not affected thereby."

The OP mentions being able to use collateral in Thai wives name, thats actually about making extensions easier.

That would be nice. My wife is richer than me with her own house and rice fields. Just a couple of hundred wah makes up easily the 400K. I cannot imagine this but that would be so cool. I have the 400K in the bank so no problem but again, I cannot see this happening.

There isnt any mention of a crack down on people using agents etc, the OP is about a crackdown on illegal workers. People appear to be commenting on what they "want" the crackdown to be, not what has been announced. 

There is in a link to the paper whose name we cannot mention, but British Petroleum initials might give you a clue!!

 

PM me if you haven't already got it.

Just a cautionary word for those posters congratulating themselves on being legit. (as I am) and thus having nothing to worry about.Just suppose the crackdown proceeds successfully...who will they look to next to make up the massive shortfall in income it will cause?Think about that before smugly patting yourselves on the back..

It may be the contract needs to be signed before rather than during the marriage. And I believe gifting funds to buy the land can work if it is an outright gift and not a loan.. I will ask a thai lawyer and report back.

The OP mentions changes to extensions, nothing about making extensions more tough. and nothing about changing the amount. The OP mentions being able to use collateral in Thai wives name, thats actually about making extensions easier.

 

We do not know what he is planning to do and how he is planning to do it. 

 

Taking into consideration past changes and him going after agents, I really do not see him making positive changes to make it easier or more simple

Possibly Thailand have realised that a large number of foreigners residing here actually give very little back as they can’t rub two baht together

True but they also do not take much as there is nothing given for free.

 While work permits have been made easier , business visa extensions remain a headache with tonnes of paperwork and visits.

No such thing as a 3x30 yr lease. I know where you’re coming from or, more to the point, whom you have listened to with that oh so gullible ear of yours. Basic Thai law allows for a 30 year lease, period. The rest is I-wish-it-were-true nonsense. The renewal is up to the lessor and the lessor only regardless of “promises” to renew. Yes,that is what they are: promises, just that. You can’t make a promise a legal obligation.

Who cares!

Let them change the rules to anything they want, if I don't like it I will head home and find another destination that is more agreeable to me. I don't have to put up with this nonsense. Personally I have been tired of the paperwork for a long time now. If they change it to make it more difficult? Screw em.

Have you any info regarding your comment, or are you just being ridiculous?

The law requires me to have 800.000 baht for my retirement extension, report every 90 days, not work.

So pray tell me how you reckon that will become illegal.

They could make a new requirement that you need not 800,000 in the bank but 8,000,000 in the bank with the stroke of a pen...Then your 800,000 becomes illegal......Hell they could require a Farang to have 80,000,000 baht in the bank...They could require absolutely any thing at any time they want...

Every country went through a developing stage. At some point corruption was tackled, toes were stepped on etc and it's gonna take a long long time but I'm really surprised that TV posters want it to continue with no attempt at all to even try

Simply unbelievable but then again it's is TV posters
