Yes, transfer tax has been reduced to 0.01 per cent for properties under 3 million baht (so a maximum of 300 baht) - but for Thai nationals only. Non Thai citizens still have to pay the full 2 per cent transfer tax, or whatever percentage of the 2 per cent they negotiate with the seller.

 

The discount for Thai citizens lasts until 31 December 2022.

If its in a company I think you will have to pay specific business tax on top too, 3%. Then you have the cost of closing the company, about 30,000 THB depending on who you go to.

Does it apply to land purchases as well? If so, when did this come into effect? I'm curious because my wife recently bought a plot of land. She's still in Thailand and hasn't discussed the details of her transaction yet.

You need to transfer the condominium before you close the company.

 

If you somehow manage to do it the other way around you will be in real difficulty when you get to the land office as you will be trying to sell a property from a company that does not exist any more.
