Let's assume, for the sake of the theoretical question-answer session, that a certain person who speaks fluent common and well nuanced Thai with reading and writing ability and holds at least one bank account in Thailand, can stay in Thailand a long period of at least two and half years with any (probably extended) visa which isn't an employee visa or a partner visa (49%-51% shareholding).
Let's further assume that this person shouldn't have any major problem to stay so and is doing everything according to his best understanding of the law and carefully:
- Counting days for visa extension / 90 days report with electronic calendar with alarm clock
- Organizes documents in folders
90 days reportand relevantly-dated
TM-30approval documents in relevant folders
- Pay fees in time and saves receipts in sealing cases and folders
- And so forth
Problem to solve
If Thai authorities suspect, allegedly wrongly, that this person has a
job-based-income, either directly (
customer TO bank-account) or indirectly (
customer TO bank-account TO bank-account), say, as a freelance programmer with a visa that doesn't allow working, that person might be in serious problem and would have to defend her or his freedom.
- Can one be a tax nomad in Thailand without marrying a Thai person?
If the person didn't have
job-based-income but is suspected to have had and even accused to have had and needs to defend her or his freedom:
Can the person's bank account be terminated or restricted until end of legal discussion (and which of the two is more likely)?
For a person with say 75,000 Baht in the Thai bank account and no proof of other bank account anywhere in the world, how much approximately might the Thai Revenue Authority fee be and does such fee has
interestutilized on its sum?
How to find a lawyer that won't ripoff this person from any saving he might currently have?
What about a secondary defense argument that the job the person is accused of doing is anyway not listed as prohibited by non Thais to do inside Thailand in Thai law, hence no actual harm was done to the Thai state?
