I would like to ask you for the case in which our company has to pay the invoice for sea freight charge shipment from Laem Chabang to another country. The service provided is the registered company in Thailand and the invoice has VAT 7% charge. Is this correct? Please advise.

Panwa: According to the Revenue Code under section 80/1(3); The Zero rate shall be used in value added tax calculation for provision of international transport services by aircraft or ship by juristic business persons.

However, if the company carries on the business as the service provider for transportation only but they are not the owner of the ship, they could charge the 7% of VAT from their service. Anyways, we can assist for the monthly taxation service and accounting service, click here
