It Pays to Know

One thing that most expats don’t know is that different laws apply to them when they are living outside of their home country. What might apply to you in Japan, Spain or France will not apply to you during your years abroad. For the years that you live in Thailand and invest from here, you can invest your money overseas without paying taxes on the profits if your investing via an international tax optimized jurisdiction like Switzerland, Hong Kong, Isle of Man, Cayman to name a few.

Thailand’s tax law does not require taxes to be paid on income from international investments provided that income is not declared as income earned and brought into Thailand in the same tax year. They only tax on income earned via your pay and profits from domestic investments. This is one of the reasons that so many wealthy expats park themselves in Thailand. They know that, because of the tax laws, their wealth can grow faster here than nearly anywhere else in the world.

What Does This Mean to You?

Even if you don’t have much to invest yet, you can still take advantage of these laws. And, if you are on a long-term contract in Thailand, so much the better! That means that you will have a much longer time to watch your modest investments become sizeable ones.

An Example

Let’s say that you are Japanese but living in Bangkok for a few years. A Japanese person living in Japan is responsible for taxes on all investment profits for each year that they make profits globally. But in Thailand, you aren’t responsible for paying taxes on those profits if they come from international investments and not brought into Thailand in the same tax year. So, why not take advantage of living in an overseas investment profit tax forgiving country like Thailand? If you aren’t currently doing so, you are giving yourself a tax liability.
