Thailand Exempted Crypto Transfers From VAT Until The End Of 2023

Thailand just introduced a VAT exemption for crypto transfers through exchanges that are approved by the government.

This tax break is in force until the end of 2023, and it will also apply to digital currency issued by the Bank of Thailand.

A 7% VAT exemption on transactions

Bitcoin. com notes that investors moving cryptos and digital tokens through exchanges in Thailand will benefit from a 7% VAT exemption on such transactions.

“A decree published in the Royal Gazette on Tuesday enforced the tax break retroactively from April 1, 2022. It will be in place until Dec. 31, 2023,” local media reported as per the website we mentioned above.

According to official data, the measure, which was approved by the government in March, concerns trading platforms registered with the Ministry of Finance.

It’s been also revealed that this decision has now become part of Thai law as it enters into force on the day following its publication in the official journal.

According to the document, the main purpose of the tax relief is to promote crypto trade on authorized exchanges.

This will be allowing crypto transactions to be regulated and carried out under the supervision of relevant departments like the SEC.

This is yet another move showing how great the mass adoption of crypto is going these days. This is one of the moves that are boosting the mass adoption of crypto and their underlying tech, the blockchain.

A positive future for crypto in the US

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong has recently made sure to say that he feels optimistic about the crypto regulatory landscape in the United States.

While speaking at a Milken Institute conference earlier this month, Armstrong acknowledged there could be more crypto regulatory clarity overall. On the other hand, he made it pretty clear that he still thinks the US is headed in the right direction.

“I think there’s cause for optimism though as well, and one thing is that in Biden’s recent executive order, they did ask for various departments of the government in the US to come back and say, ‘We need clarity on this industry.’”
