Thailand introduces virtual currency trading tax rules 


In a last-minute change ahead of the implementation of new tax rules for virtual currency trading, Thai lawmakers agreed that virtual currency trading on regulated exchanges should be exempt from value-added tax.

Under the new regime, gains will be subject to a 15 percent capital gains tax charge, with the tax to be subject to withholding, and a seven percent value-added tax charge will be assessed where trades take place off an approved exchange.

The introduction of tax comes alongside a new regulatory regime for the sector, with new value-added tax registration obligations arising for many industry players.
