A tax incentive to encourage use of trusts for transactions in Thailand’s capital
market has recently been approved by Thailand cabinet. The measure exempts
trust settlers, trustees and trust beneficiaries from income tax, VAT, specific
business tax and stamp duty in income, receipts or instruments executed derived
from transactions performed in relation to an agreement establishing a trust in
accordance with the laws on using trusts for transactions in the capital market
(“in some cases”),
Further details on rules/regulations relevant to the measure have yet to be announced
by the Thai government.
