Golf course operators seek changes in land tax bill

Golf course operators have asked the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) to add golf courses as another land category in the land tax bill with a lower tax rate, or they will all be out of business.

Pornsit Sri-orathaikul, who represents the Thai Golf Course Association and other golf course groups, submitted the letter to NLA president Pornpetch Wichitcholchai at Parliament on Friday.

“We would like to ask the panel vetting the land and buildings tax bill to add golf courses as another category in the new law with a lower tax rate, or clearly put golf courses in the tax reduction or exemption clause instead of requiring a royal decree for the change,” Mr Pornsit said.
