  1. UK. It seems that it is something that is not illegal under any law but the Police decide to have a word with you because he felt it was wrong. Generally applies to people saying something that might hurt the feelings of minorities. Meanwhile if your house is burgled they are too busy to follow up on it.
  2. A country megaphoning about revoking visas it has issued is not a good look.
  3. Don't argue when they try and price gauge you or you will have your visa revoked. You not pay I get Poleet cancen wisa you
  4. The problems may come from another direction. Right now my US broker allows me to tick a box that says Thailand issues TIN's but I am not legally required to have one, which was true, but no longer is if the letter of the law is followed. So it could be if Thai tax resident but no TIN no keeping account. Probably many more examples like this.
  5. OK looks like I am wrong, and maybe US broker requires TIN because I am non US client
  6. It was more that that was a stipulation of the law as written (brought in by an earlier set of generals) along with TM28 but they dropped it as unworkable. It is amazing how they can override the law if they want to.
  7. Common Reporting Standard. The Common Reporting Standard (CRS), developed in response to the G20 request and approved by the OECD Council on 15 July 2014, calls on jurisdictions to obtain information from their financial institutions and automatically exchange that information with other jurisdictions on an annual basis. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=Common+Reporting+standard
  8. The danger is when it becomes fully automated. Right now the RD is not set up to deal with foreigners and are reluctant to do so.
  9. He means the political strategy of creating a perception of a rising tide of hatred in order to suppress free speech. False narratives don't stand up to criticism.
  10. Apparently there are two? main family groups running bars etc there and you can avoid supporting a certain family group by carefully selecting which establishments you patronise. The family that had a son gunned down in broad daylight are not believed to have been involved. Drawing on info from the CSI whatever facebook here, not direct personal experience, but the point was made that by avoiding KT altogether you are punishing others who were not involved.
  11. Square Face is notoriously strait laced - seems his family brought their 'little village in China' village values with them when they came to Thailand and then when he came to power he forced them on the Thais.
  12. The Thai horn of plenty - the cup that endlessly refills - especially if you have built your house on land Mama owns - pay off the debt or lose the house to the money lender, then they rinse and repeat. you can refuse to pay but then your girlfriend will be in a permanent mope - how can she be happy she will tell you when she has this "ploblem"? of course yours *COULD* be different.
  13. Some lawyers are tellimg clients that if they personally own/let 4 units or less in a condo they are in compliance with the law. That is not what the exemption for guesthouses with 4 rooms or less means and not how the authorities interpret the law (when they do).
  14. I would guess with the push for tourism and Srettha visiting AirBnB here, the intention is probably to relax the law. Obviously the hotel industry stands in the way of that. Fact is with the increased difficulty of staying here long term due to visa tightening over the years without the huge number of people coming in compensating for that, and ST lets, there would be a lot more empty condos and less demand to buy new ones for letting out.
