The Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak disagreed on Friday media reports, in denen behauptet wurde, General Prayut have drawn an increase in VAT in Recital.
"There are no plans, to increase the VAT of seven to eight percent. The economy is recovering well and a tax increase would be counterproductive. The Finance Ministry wants to extend the current VAT rate of seven percent again for another year ", said Deputy Prime Minister to media representatives.
Somkid pointed out, that Thailand's sovereign debt to 44% des Bruttoinlandsprodukts (BIP) would amount, which was far from the 60% ceiling for public debt.
Finance Minister Apisak Tantiworawong volunteered on the subject to speak out and confirmed, that any increase in VAT is planned. "The date fixed for one year at a VAT rate ends on 30. September dieses Jahres und das Finanzministerium plant die Verlängerung des derzeitigen Steuersatzes von 7% um ein weiteres Jahr”, erklärte Apisak.
