The cabinet on Tuesday authorized financial procedures to assist the virus-hit tourist sector – consisting of a tax payment hold-up, soft loans and unwinded loan payments.

Lavaron Sangsanit, financing ministery representative, stated individual earnings tax payment was extended from completion of March to June 30, and business can subtract two times as much as their costs on regional conferences and workshops this year from their gross income.

Hoteliers can subtract 1.5 times as much as their costs on remodelling this year from their gross income. The excise tax on airplane fuel was cut from 4.726 baht to 0.20 baht a litre till Sept 30.

The tax procedures were anticipated to cut state income by about 4.5 billion baht.

Mr Lavaron stated, state-run banks would offer soft loans worth an overall of 123 billion baht to tourism-related companies, with interest beginning at 3%.

The Little and Medium Business Advancement Bank used a six-month financial obligation moratorium for security payment to disciplined customers. Federal government Cost savings Bank presented moratoriums of as much as 5 years and Thai Credit Warranty Corporation suspended warranty charges for 12 months.

The Financing Ministry and the Bank of Thailand concurred that these would not be the last procedures to fortify the economy, Mr Lavaron stated.
