As the deadline for submission of Personal Income Tax Returns is nearly approaching, we often receive questions from our individual clients concerning the deductions and computation of their personal income taxes. Here is one of the questions that were answered by the THAI ACCOUNTANT:


Is it considered a taxable income for the employment benefits in terms of childcare facilities provided by our employer?


Employee benefits in the form of contributions made by employers in relation to providing childcare facilities are exempted from Thai tax from 1 January 2011 onwards. The exemption only applies to the employee’s natural children, as opposed to adoptive children, and the childcare facilities must be licensed to operate as part of employee benefit scheme under Child Protection Law.
