Property TaxationThere are two different types of Tax levied on property in Thailand and they are called: Land Tax and Structures Usage Tax
Land Taxis a very small tax levied on land ownership equivalent to just a few Baht per Rai every year.
Structures Usage Taxis applicable at the rate of 12.5% on the actual (or assessed) gross rental value of the property.
Lesseesare not subject to this tax but may be required by the real estate developer to pay an annual ground rent instead.

The reason for this is that the receiving bank will issue the relevant exchange control form ( formally the Thor Tor 3 form ) confirming the transaction.
The relevance of the exchange control form is that it is one of the documents you will need in the future if you wish to repatriate funds without incurring tax (15%)
