As I understand the requirement the gross amount of the rental income can by used unless the supporting bank statements show the income after tax. Also read 6.5.1 which details the specific evidence required.
I have to stress that this is only my opinion, I'm not really up to speed on property rental income.

6.1.5 - The gross amount of any cash income may be counted towards the financial requirement, where the correct tax has been paid on that income and where all the relevant evidential requirements in Appendix FM-SE are met. Where a person’s relevant specified evidence relating to permitted sources of non-employment income shows their gross cash income and the tax paid, and their specified bank statements in relation to the permitted non-employment income show all of that post-tax income, they can count the gross amount of the cash income shown on the specified documentation towards the financial requirement (or the net income in relation to dividends). But, where that person’s specified bank statements relating to permitted non-employment income only show a proportion of that post-tax income, only the amount shown on the bank statements can be counted towards the financial requirement.

Presumably you submit accounts to the Inland Revenue and pay tax on your earnings? How do you pay tax etc if you don't? I am self employed and my accountant prepares my accounts and the tax man gives me an SA302 which I have to submit, along with bank statements etc.

Do you submit a self assessment form to the British IR? If you are using bank statements from your Thai bank account presumably it will be net income not gross.

Why would you submit the gross figure? You must have costs from wear and tear etc which you should be able to offset against tax etc.

Before the OP's original request for guidance gets lost, this is very simple,  Income from property rental can be used to meet the 18,600 GBP income requirement. The gross rental income figure can be used. This is the guidance:

(a) To evidence property rental income:

 

(i) Confirmation that the person or the person and their partner jointly own the property for which the rental income is received, through:

 

(1) A copy of the title deeds of the property or of the title register from the Land Registry (or overseas equivalent); or

(2) A mortgage statement.

 

(ii) Personal bank statements for or from the 12-month period prior to the date of application showing the rental income relied upon was paid into an account in the name of the person or of the person and their partner jointly. The bank statements should cover the period for which the income is relied upon.

 

(iii) A rental agreement or contract.

If you find the answer about rental income could you be kind enough to post back here with the answer please?

 

When I read up about this I took it as gross rental income before any tax (laws on how rental income is taxed has changed recently which may point to why gross is taken and not net) although this is just how I read it and it doesn't really make sense that way does it (but neither do the new rental income tax laws). Personally I would try to meet the requirement net of tax income if at all possible - thats just my opinion though.

 

Good luck.

I thought I had already given the answer.   The gross income from rental income is used towards meeting the requirement, just as gross salary is used towards meeting the requirement through employment income.  The tax on rental income is a separate issue. If you receive property rental income, then you are obliged to submit a tax self assessment every year, and declare the rental income on the Self Assessment SA100 form for HMRC.

Many are quoting you can use rental incomeprovided you meet requirements but the NEW money requirements supersede the old paragraphs they are quoting.

What is a settlement Visa......lived here 14+ years never heard of that one.

Learn from all your countrymen before you........if you are on limited funds........better u stay in UK.

The only money Immigration cares about is what you have transferred to a Thai bank.
