Cash Replaces Stamps On Certain Instruments Subject to Stamp Duty

Lease agreements and service (hire for work) agreements are typically subject to stamp duty in Thailand equal to 0.1% of the value of the agreement, with payment of such duty involving the purchase of actual stamps to be affixed to the relevant agreement.

Starting on 5 April 2015, stamps will no longer need to be purchased and affixed to such agreements with a value of at least THB 1 million.  Instead, payment of the stamp duty will be required to be paid in cash at the relevant revenue office within 15 days after the execution date.
