You can leave without having done the 90 day report and the counter is reset on return. I suspect your office would maybe miss your previous error in 90 days time.  

Will it be cheaper to leave than pay the 2000 baht?

As others have said, 2,000 baht fine, but can be up to 5,000 baht, that said, as you have suggested, go in with the wife who is a good negotiator and tell her to add to the story, I have noticed of la

I was about the same amount of time over on my 90 days check, I thought when I got a new passport and visa's transferred it would also reset the 90 days, it doesn't. Jomtien I/O explained the rules to

That depends:

But he must have a Multiple-Entry Re-Entry Permit, so that his permission to stay will not be voided by exiting and re-entering Thailand.  Having to buy a Single-Entry (1000 THB)  or Multiple-Entry (3800 THB) to avoid this, is definitely not worth it.

If he has an ME Re-Entry Permit, and he lives close to the border he might consider that (but has to take into account the Visa or border-pass fee).

When the ONLY reason for exiting/re-entering would be avoiding the 2.000 THB fee, it would be better just pay the 2000 THB fine.

Exactly, that was my point.

You’ll be ok but you’re going to get hit with a little fine it shouldn’t be more than a few thousand baht. In fact the maximum fine for late reporting is 5,000 baht tops but that’s like after months go by. You’re probably looking at maybe a 2,000 baht fine.

OP - if it were me I’d go to the Immigration Monday. Take your wife with you. Go to 90 day check in line hand them your passport. If they tell you pay X amount pay it and go on with your life....

 

added... wait until they ask you for reason. Tell your reason ....

Oh. Nah, never used one. I doubt they are as good a negotiator as my wife. But thanks for the suggestion.

Agents don't negotiate when doing the 90 days reports for customers. They have more of an agreement with the officer working at the 90 days report desk.

I am reminded of this every day in Thailand, almost never back home.

 

2,000 baht can destroy a person here, change their life, ruin their eating habits for a month, send them into disrepair and act as though they will die any moment.

 

While others spend 2000 on some beers and .....          every night

So, 2,000 Baht fine - total amount? Expensive lesson...

 

jacko45k, not sure what you mean about the "quick trip out of the country"?

 

Hardly an expensive lesson.
