    Tax on gifts from overseas

    Hi folks,

    If I were to send gifts to someone in Thailand, does the recipient need to pay taxes to get it? And if so, is there any rough guide to the amount that has to be paid? The items are food...

    Re: Help with thai sentence

    I think that is fine. Usually we can leave out the subject (person) and start with a verb.

    E.g. Pai nai = Where are you going?
    Seu arai maa = What did you buy?

    What is the reason for wanting to work in Thailand? Do you know what you really want to do? If it is just because you like the country, I am afraid you are putting the horse before the cart.
