Working in Thailand

If you are going to work in Thailand then you will need to check your employment contract in Thailand. This will tell you your salary and conditions, as well as who will be paying before getting a work permit in Thailand. If you stay on then the work permit renewal requirements will also need to be checked. Working in Thailand without work permit is a bad idea. Finally check the income tax in Thailand for foreigners.
