Tax Residency as well as tax planning are two important tools for high-net-worth individuals and it is well known that Thailand, although is not considered a tax haven, can provide excellent advantages in the area of International Tax Law.
With the surge of long-term visas such as Thai Elite or LTR, many foreign individuals need to consult lawyers to have an opinion on the exposure of international taxation in Thailand once they become tax residents in Thailand.
By definition, a tax resident in Thailand is a person, an individual who is present and resides one or multiple times in Thailand for a period totaling 180 days or more during a calendar year.
Thailand signed Double Taxation Agreements (DTA) with more than 61 countries around the world.
Our law firm in Thailand has worked for large list of foreign individuals to provide legal opinions on aspects such as tax exposure and tax obligations based on, not only the residence, but how they conduct their business and the source of income. In H&P Tax lawyers’ opinion, some of the key aspects to consider are:
- Tax residence
- Double Taxation Agreements (DTA), especially definitions of fiscal domicile, center of vital interests, place of management or permanent establishment.
- Thai Revenue Code and Tax Jurisprudence
- Source of income
In H&P Tax Lawyers opinion, the correct legal answer to determine the tax exposure in Thailand must be assess, case by case.
