Kinda show how much they really want people to get vaccinated.

 

I guess the tax is paid by the importer and then the cost passed down. There is big markup when goods are passed through the different distribution tiers. Since the tax contributes to the cost, there IS profit made on the tax then, just not by Anutin.

Private hospitals don't work for free, so VAT would be charged. That's not great, but at 7 per cent I don't think it's that massive a deal.

 

Is that on top of the 14% charged by the GPO according to the article, or is the 7% VAT part of the GPO's 14%? 

 

And will the hospitals have to charge 7% VAT to the patients?

 

Not that any of that's a massive deal...  As long as they allow private vaccinations to progress.

Unbelievable.  All he can think of is money when there is a public health crisis.  I wonder if any other country imposes import tax on covid vaccines.  

 

It is well beyond time Prayuth and his cronies are given their marching orders.

 

There's always the possibility that he knows a variance on the legislated procedure and taxes would take months of committee meetings to approve.

 

BTW, reading the linked article is usually a good idea...

You're in a COVID wave that was caused by your government's stupidity in allowing Songkhran travel, and now you want to tax what would help get you out of that wave? Stupidity squared. Greed cubed.

Or....was that the plan to increase revenues?  Not sure they would think that far ahead but when it comes to putting money in their pockets....
