Payroll in Thailand

Payroll in Thailand

When it comes to Thailand payroll, company payroll and taxes in Thailand come with certain stipulations and regulations you must follow.

Employers in Thailand must withhold income tax, employee payroll tax, and social security contributions from their pay before submitting it to the Thailand Revenue Department.

Income tax rates in Thailand range from 0% for lowest-earning employees up to 35% for workers earning more than earning more than 4 million Thailand baht.

Social security contributions for employer and employee amount to 5% of salaries, topping out at 750 Thailand baht per month.

You must issue pay slips for each pay period, either online or on paper, for every employee so they know how much was deducted from their gross pay.

Your company is under obligation to maintain payroll records for at least 7 years.

Payroll outsourcing in Thailand is legal, and it’s a great way to save your company money by handling mundane payroll services and ensuring that you fully comply with Thai law. It stands to reason that investing in great Employer of Record Services in Thailand would help you immensely in easing your entry into Thailand.

Benefits of payroll services in Thailand include:

  • Thailand payroll calculation
  • Submitting regular payroll tax forms every month
  • Payroll for temporary and contract staff for local and foreign employees
  • Payroll set-up and administration
  • Covering all administrative and statutory requirements
  • Regulatory compliance with local labor laws
