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.

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%)
