The digital assets industry is up in arms over the Revenue Department’s plan to levy tax on capital gains or benefits derived from cryptocurrencies and other digital asset transactions.

 

With the two parties being at loggerheads, consultations have begun between tax officials and concerned parties to resolve the conflict.

 

The department has promised to conclude the matter only by the end of January even as a hot debate rages on whether the government should collect taxes on digital assets, or how such tax can be levied fairly.

Yeah, it´s amazing! Outrageous! Who would ever have thought they would have to pay tax on economical profit?

Ooh! Wait.....isn´t that how it works between traders and state regarding the financial sector?

I have the same experience....nothing but once I bought 0.5 ETH by a vendor machine, it is now 10 times more in value.

But I try to buy with cash money some more, but it looks like Thai people are not willing to sell it cash.

Last week I try to buy at "LocalCryptos" but nobody, first they response but when you indicate to buy it in cash they no longer respond.

You can use a Thai exchange for the convenience of easy buying, you don't need to ever sell anything on the Thai exchange....it's a big world.

 

Prediction : literally everybody will do the above.

I bet you they'll charge you tax to transfer to another wallet.

Nah, it's all about any profit at the time of sale. Merely moving them around generates no profit or loss.

 

If they wanted to kill crypto stone cold dead in Thailand they could alter the VAT laws and tax every purchase transaction.

That would end it in one day.

Tax is just another name for fees. They may well charge you 15% service fee to transfer.

they could technically apply a withholding tax when you want to transfer to another wallet or take your crypto offline, and claim back the withholding tax once you settle your trade and record a profit or a loss

 

that's what happens in the US for your offshore trading account under certain "flagged" conditions,

 

I learn the hard way 😛
