泰国减免散户7%增值税,下月加密货币政策才是重头戏?

泰国国税局近日宣布,将减免对加密货币个人投资者征收的7%增值税。本周一该国开始监管加密货币交易和初始代币发行(ICO),具体由泰国证券交易委员会(SEC)负责。

减免散户7%增值税

泰国关于加密货币和初始代币发行(ICO)的法令于本周一生效。

据当地媒体报道,本周二该国国税局法律事务主任Saroch Thongpracum在新闻发布会上宣布:

税务部门将对在SEC批准的加密货币市场上交易的个人,免征增值税。

不过,Saroch Thongpracum强调:“个人仍需缴纳15%的资本利得税,即代扣所得税,对交易中获得的收入征收的税目。”该报道指出,对加密货币个人投资者的增值税减免旨在减轻该国币民的税务负担。

此外根据新规,发行ICO的私营公司必须对所筹集的资金缴纳企业所得税。

下个月将出台全面的加密货币监管政策

根据该法令,泰国证券交易委员会(SEC)将是加密资产的主要监管机构,监管对象是交易提供商、经纪人和ICO门户。国税局发言人说,监管对象还必须获得财政部部长的许可才能参与交易。

泰国SEC主席说,委员会预计在举行公开听证会后,于6月底出台加密货币和ICO的监管政策。泰国SEC秘书长Rapee Sucharitakul表示:

鉴于加密货币投资的复杂性和高风险,公开听证会将持续2到3周。

在公开听证会期间,在该国禁止发行ICO。

《曼谷邮报》援引Rapee Sucharitakul的讲话:

新规旨在保护普通投资者权益,规定只有拥有ICO发行或加密资产交易知识的投资者才能参与此类交易。

与此同时,泰国央行行长Chantavarn Sucharitakul表示,该行将等SEC公布更多的监管细节后才会采取任何行动。此前,泰国央行曾要求该国金融机构停止处理加密货币交易业务。

Thailand’s Revenue Department has announced that it will waive the 7% value-added tax for individual cryptocurrency investors. The country began regulating digital currencies and initial coin offerings on Monday, putting the Thai Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in charge of the regulations.

VAT Exemption

The decree to provide the legal framework for cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings (ICOs) in Thailand went into effect on Monday.

Cryptocurrency transactions are currently subject to income tax for both private companies and individual investors, Nation Multimedia explained. Saroch Thongpracum, Director of Legal Affairs of the country’s Revenue Department, announced at a press conference on Tuesday:

The Revenue Department will waive value-added tax for people trading in cryptocurrencies on exchange markets approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

However, Mr. Saroch emphasized, “Individuals will still have to pay a 15 percent capital gains tax, also known as a withholding tax, on income earned in a transaction.”

The VAT waiver for individual cryptocurrency traders aims to “reduce their tax burden,” the publication noted, adding that the Revenue Department “would issue a regulation waiving the 7 percent VAT for individual investors.”

Furthermore, the news outlet detailed, “Under the new law, private companies launching ICOs have to pay corporate income tax on the funds they raise from the exercise.”

Full Regulations Expected Next Month

According to the decree, the Thai SEC will be the primary regulator of digital assets. Three groups of crypto operators will be regulated: brokers, dealers, and ICO portals. They must obtain licenses from the Finance Minister, according to the department’s spokesperson.

The SEC chief says that the Commission expects to issue regulations on cryptocurrencies and ICOs by the end of June after holding a public hearing. “The public hearing will take 2-3 weeks because investments in digital tokens are complicated and carry high risks,” the Bangkok Post reported SEC secretary-general Rapee Sucharitakul conveying. During this time, ICOs are banned in the country.

The news outlet then quoted Mr. Rapee elaborating:

The new regulation aims to provide protection for general investors since only investors who have knowledge of ICO issuance or digital-asset transactions should be allowed to engaging in this kind of trading.

Meanwhile, the Bank of Thailand (BOT) announced that it will wait for the SEC to release more details of the regulations before it will take any action, Assistant Bank of Thailand governor Chantavarn Sucharitakul told the publication. The central bank has previously requested financial institutions in the country to refrain from dealing with cryptocurrency transactions.
