Also, buyers must earn Bt100,000 a month and be registered with the Revenue Department’s tax database.

I'd like to know how many of those are in Thailand. I'm gonna estimate that those that make that kind of money already have real estate.

The govt have   just driven a nail into the coffin for condos even farther with their taxes  starting January , they sure  know how to cripple an already ailing market.

1st  condo free, second  if  family  living in it 200 baht per  million 3rd  condos 3000 baht per million of  value...........tossers

With  falling rents its already getting difficult a 4  million baht condo will incur 12000 baht in tax or 1k a  month off any rent income if you have 3 or  more

Note to the genius minds coming up with these bizarre ideas. The property market is a market that reacts to supply, demand, the health of the economy and a drop in foreigners buying these units. 

 

Therefore, when prices are adjusted to account for these factors, demand increases. Otherwise, keep dreaming and scheming.

https://www.bdo.co.th/en-gb/insights/tax-updates/new-property-tax-law-in-thailand

 

After numerous attempts over the years to reshape the way property tax is imposed in Thailand, new property tax legislation has finally entered into law in Thailand.

The new law replaces the current House and Land Tax Act and the Local Development Tax Act and aims to encourage the productive use of land and improve tax collections. Taxes will commence to be collected under the new law from 1 January 2020.

Taxable properties

The tax will apply to land as well as condominiums, apartments and buildings, including houses, or any construction which can be used as a residence or for storage, industrial or commercial purposes.

People will now potentially be liable to tax on their homes, although a generous tax exemption threshold will apply.

The tax will be imposed on property held at 1 January of each tax year.

Tax base

Tax is currently imposed under the House and Land Tax Act on a property’s annual rental value at the rate of 12.5%.

Under the new law, the tax base shall be the appraised value of the property as determined for the purpose of collecting registration fees under the Land Code. In the case where there is no appraised value, the tax base will be calculated in accordance with the criteria, method and conditions as prescribed in Ministerial Regulations.

Tax rates

The following ceiling rates have been introduced for four categories of property:

   (1) Properties used for agricultural purposes:                          0.15%

   (2) Properties used for residential purposes:                          0.30%

   (3) Properties used for purposes other than (1) and (2):         1.20%

   (4) Vacant/non-utilised properties*:                                          1.20%

*If the land or building is left vacant or undeveloped for three consecutive years, the rate will increase by 0.3% every 3 years subject to a cap of 3%.

Tax rates have been announced for 2020 and 2021. For example, for a condominium unit owned by an individual that uses the unit as their place of residence and their name appears in the house registration book, the tax rates are:

table-final-2.jpg.aspx?lang=en-GB&width=

Tax rates after 2021 shall be prescribed by Royal Decree. The local authority empowered to collect the tax has the power to impose a higher rate but in any case it shall not exceed the ceiling rates.

Tax exemptions

Tax exemptions are provided in the following cases:

  • Land and buildings owned by individuals that are used for agricultural purposes shall be exempt from tax until 2022, after which a tax exempt threshold of Baht 50 million shall apply.
  • A tax exempt threshold of Baht 50 million shall apply to land and buildings owned by individuals that are used as their place of residence, if their names appear in the house registration book on 1 January of the tax year
  • A tax exempt threshold of Baht 10 million shall apply to buildings owned by individuals, where they are not the land owner, that are used as their place of residence, if their names appear in the house registration bookon 1 January of the tax year. By definition this would include a condominium unit.

Transitional relief

In the first three years that the new property tax is collected, if the tax assessed is higher than the tax previously payable under the House and Land Tax Act, the taxpayer shall be liable to pay the house and land tax amount plus a portion of the excess in each year, being 25% in the first year, 50% in the second and 75% in the third year.

The Fiscal Policy Office has issued a summary of the implications of the new law (in Thai language): Property-tax-guide-in-Thai-Fiscal-Policy-Office.pdf

This is hilarious. Most doctors make 50-70k. One of my students her parents:

 

Radiologist working cancer hospital - mom

 

Epidemiologist - dad

 

Together pulling in 75k

 

Good luck with that program lol.

 

50k - that's a long weekend in Japan.

 

Thai promotions are always a serious laff.

 

The taxes coming in are half the property taxes in US in many lower taxed states. But what are you getting here? Absolutely nothing.

 

You just know the Thais won't look at the taxes as well...taxes. They will consider it part of the investment they need to recoup on the sale. Wondering why their condo isn't flipping. Speaking of flipping I wonder if the flippers will be liable for the taxes.

 

Finally, wanna bet developers holding and renting condos won't pay taxes?
