Digital nomad told he's not a criminal for blogging, released without charge

Recommended Posts

It would certainly appear that skins didn't want to answer questions about his alleged adventures. Wonder why that is?

I write about all of my adventures at http://singlemansparadise.com/

I also reply to every comment. You are all welcome to stop by and say hello.

Also, I'd like to state that I don't know the OP and I never asked to have my link posted on Thai Visa... But I appreciate the spike in traffic.

Good luck to you too.....with your pikery....it would seems you need all the help you can get.

Can't promise I will visit your blog.......I have a weak stomach and the oral sex thing with the old boiler thing has really scarred me. ;)

So what if Immigration clamps down on it? If you aren't doing it yourself, why worry? A lot of people seem to be getting their Y fronts in a twist about digital nomads. Why? Can someone explain it to me? There are plenty of other illegal activities to get upset about that are far, far worse. Whether the content of blogs or websites is good bad or indifferent is neither here nor there to me. If I don't like it I just choose not to read it again and so it has zero impact on my life. While taxation exists; anywhere in the world; people will try to avoid paying it.

It's just a discussion Champers, I don't really dislike skins, or his mates, don't know them. I might even frequent his blog, if I go there 5,000,000 times, it may even help the boy with the purchase if a local ice cream or something similar

I still see the pikeys several rungs higher than a lot of OTHER grubs that exist in Thailand (& the rest of the world).

Skins and his pikey mates have confirmed ideas and values I've held for many years and for that I thank them

All the best to the young lads.....I wonder how they will be travelling in 20-30 years time?

:D

Skin's blog is pure self deluded fantasist bilge in most parts.

An account of a man's whoring in the biggest red light areas of Asia....it gets funnier where he tries to make out he's not paying for it and has the hot HiSo women kicking his door down as they do with every unemployed tourist who has no visible source of income or zero status here, as they're such a catch...

As Pointed out in an earlier post the 'Why i don't date Bangkok Girls anymore" is so funny, were it better written, and if I didn't want to publicly support this crap, I'd actually recommend it.

The reason you don't 'date' Bangkok girls is because you have no verifiable, regular source of income and probably live in some dump, so most - not even the bar girls - wouldn't give you the time of day you deluded fool.

Large numbers of pikeys claim to be independently wealthy so capitalising a Thb 2.0 million Ltd company should be no problem you don't even need 2.0 mill cash to do it

If you intend starting a legal company here the visa is easy to get

Fact is plenty of people start companies here just to own houses so the process isn't that hard is it ?

Claim to be wealthy. Then why are they here? They're trying to get something started on a shoestring otherwise they'd stay in their home countries.

I can tell you've never started a business here. It is a pain in the arse. The monthly social security payments cost 6000+ baht/month. Min salary is 50/60,000. Tax needs to be paid on that 18,000 baht a year.

It's true paid up capital doesn't need to be cash. It can be land but it needs to be tangible. You can't 'blag' it. Plus there is all of the Thai nominee bullshit - not being able to own your company outright unless you are American. It is easier if you are an American. Cost 60,000 in fees to get all that sorted out.

It's expensive. It's time consuming. It's no wonder so many people say <deleted> it and don't bother.

Thailand ranks very low on the 'Ease of business' rankings as a result.

The 50/60k year is only for extension of stay, you can have a WP on less than that if your prepared to leave the country every 90 days, in theory under a company as a director you don't even have to pay yourself a high salary ergo taxation is next to nothing

Social security LOL the princely sum of THB 750/m per employee so don't know where you get Thb 6k/m from

Granted I work here for a company, but know plenty of people who have set their own businesses up

The reason people don't do it is because they can't be arsed, bit like getting a Thai DL or they are not as independently wealthy as they claim

Some little Digital Pikey, sat in a 4k room in On Nut or a Grindhouse in Bang Na is hardly likely to be seen as a good catch.

Especially one that boasts about getting a $10 blow job on a beach from some old boiler.

Its not hard in Thailand at all, how many other countries in the world let you turn up as a tourist, stay long term and undertake digital pikery when your not a citizen or PR of the country ? One suspects if Thailand tightened up its visa regulations a lot of the pikeys who are complaining about it bring too hard wouldn't be in country long term in the first place and would have to live their "nomadic"existence somewhere else

I have no problem with the concept of digital pikery but they should be made to register a legal entity in Thailand and pay their income tax

It's not legal to do that. It's easy to work illegally everywhere. Turn up and start working.

Look at the legal way of being a 'digital pikey' as you put it.

- Enter Thailand on a 'non immigrant visa'

- Start a business with 2 million paid up capital

- Hire 4 odd employees and pay their social security

...

...

That's not easy...

Fact is without the 4 employees loads of digital people would do it. The two million is not the problem as you said does not have to be deposited.

You are talking about something you never did.. i have started up a company here and i tell you its hard. (even harder to close it). It is doable.. but the 4 Thai employees are stupid.. digital people working for clients in their home country can't use Thais.

Then you got loads of problems with the accountant (i am an accountant so i know them). next time try something before you comment.

Yeah is that because there's no precedent for good-looking women to spend time, effort and money

on guys that most people would think are total deadbeats?????

I've lost count of the number of borderline supermodels I've seen with tripped-out, flakey guys

back in the West. You don't think there are Thai girls who make equally poor

dating decisions? I guess they're all after a bald, white pensioner with a trick hip and

dentures

I'm not sure about Rob, but I have setup a company in Thailand several years ago. And I can say for sure it's nothing like you're making it out to be. Either you have been taken for a ride by others involved with your company or you never actually set one up.

For starters, the capitalisation of 2 million... non issue, as this is just a number one some paper (plus you pay a fee of 5000b per 1 million). This number does not have to be matched by anything, be it cash or land or anything else. All it actually costed us to setup the limited company, was around 25.000b (I could be slightly off as it's been a couple of years, but it's nowhere near the fortune some are making it out to be). We also did not need a lawyer or accountant to set it up for us, we did it all ourselves with the help of the local office. The whole process was completed within a couple of days.

As far as the yearly upkeep of our company goes, we pay our accountant about 30.000b per year, this includes all the book keeping, books and CTA sig at the end of the year.

The four employees requirement is not enforced where we are (I'm married to a Thai, so for me it'd be only two Thai employees), making live even easier. I understand this might change at any point in the future, and we've discussed this with our account and done the math. If this requirement does start being enforced, we'd face additional monthly fees of around 3.000b per month, big whoop!!

All in all, not nearly the big headache you're making it out the be smile.png

It was a big headache.. accountant took us for a ride. But that is not really the problem, problem is 4 employees that you have to pay that you can't use.

That is simply not an option for most digital nomads because they work with people from their home country. Thais can't speak languages well enough. Now 4 people that you dont need at around minimum wage is 40k a month (not cheap if you dont use them). Yes we had an accountant say just pay tax and keep them on paper (fake) but then again your not legal. Being totally legal is a problem. Also if your not an american you can never own 100% of your own company
