Net taxable profit (in Thai baht)

Current tax rate

Proposed tax rate

Less than 300,000



From 300,000 to 3 million



More than 3 million



The proposed tax rates would apply for two consecutive accounting periods, commencing on or after 1 January 2015. Currently, this proposal has not been passed into law. However, the Revenue Department has changed the corporate income rate on the tax return form (PND 50) on the internet in respect of these reduced tax rates. Therefore, we believe that the reduced rates will become law, and a taxpayer that is an SME may apply these reduced tax rates for its 2015 tax year.
