Special Business Tax
3.3% of appraised value or registered sale value (whichever is higher). This is applied if a property has been in possession of a seller < 5 years.
0.5% of registered property value. Payable only if business tax exempted. Applied only if selling the property in possession >= 5 years.
2% of registered property value
1% of property’s appraised value or registered sale value (whichever is higher). Progressive rate based on the appraisal value of the property will be applied if a seller is an individual. The calculation is by using selling price as income deducted by expenses throughout years in possession to get yearly net income. Then use net income per year to calculate tax income per year from personal income then multiply it with years in possession to get the withholding tax.

For a better illustration, please see the exemplified case below
A land is assessed by the government to be valued at THB5,000/sq.m. Total area of the land is 2,000 sq.m. The seller has possessed the land for 2 years.
Withholding tax calculation:
5,000 * 2,000 = 10,000,000
Net income per year
Net income tax per year
75,000 * 2 = 150,000
