Companies operating in Thailand are required by law to withhold tax when paying income and to submit the amount of tax withheld to the Department of Revenue. As part of our payroll management service Juslaws & Consult addresses the payroll administration requirements of our clients and ensures that the company is in compliance with Thai tax laws.
Businesses must withhold taxes from employee compensation every pay period. The withholding tax rate depends on the amount and type of income paid.
Thailand’s Personal Income Tax (PIT) is the most common type of withholding tax. It is a direct tax that is withheld from an individual’s income by their employer. The actual amount is based on a schedule published by the Thai Revenue Department. Individual taxpayers are required to file a return each calendar year and to pay any additional tax that may be due.
With some other types of payments for services made to persons that are not employees of the company, the company must withhold tax at the time of payment. The company is required to file a tax return and submit the amount withheld to the Department of Revenue.
Juslaws & Consult provides payroll services that include remitting withholding taxes and submitting reports to the Department of Revenue.
