Rules and regulations: In Thailand, salaries are paid once a month to permanent employees in Thailand either on the 25th,28th, or at the end of every month. As for part-time employees, company policy is adhered to. Alternatively, they can be paid either once or twice a month.
When incomplete months are worked, pro-rated salaries are paid to these employees. This is based on the number of days the employee had worked in that particular month. Overtime pay also has to be calculated correctly according to the day worked, be it an ordinary working day, or a holiday.
Finally, annual income of each employee has to be reported by the employer. This includes a summary report for both the total income and total income tax of employees. The wages calculation form also needs to be filled out for compensation funds.
Statutory Contributions: Statutory contributions in Thailand include the Social Security Fund (SSF) and the Provident Fund (PVD). Payments towards the SSF and all documents have to be submitted by every 15th of the subsequent month. Contributions to the PVD depends on the regulations of the company when this is set up with the fund management company. Documents and payments for this has to be submitted three days after salary is paid.
Taxes: Income tax has to be paid every month by employees in Thailand. Tax calculation is done at a progressive rate and depends on how much an employee earns every month. Deduction Tax Relief is also available for a variety of reasons such as personal expenses, spouse not earning any income or children.
