Did you know that as an employer in Thailand you could benefit from a tax deduction equal to 200% of your training expenses? Practically speaking, it is like recording your training expenses twice when declaring income before income tax: As a result, your income tax is proportionally discounted, which increases your net profit. Here is how to take advantage of of this tax deduction scheme when sending your employees to us for WSET courses:
What you will need:
Our registration certificate as an approved provider of training, which can be used for a 200% tax deduction according to the Skill Development Promotion Act B.E. 2002
Copy of the training payment receipt (Issued by us)
Your Income Tax Form duly filled
When can you submit your documents?
Up to 5 days before training starts and up to 60 days after training but no later than January 15th of the following year.
Where do you submit your documents?

Note for companies of 100+ employees: If your company employs more than 100 people, the Thai government makes it mandatory for you to provide training at least half of your staff, or you will be required to make a "contribution" to the Thai Skill Development Fund.
