The import tariff on totally manufactured electric vehicles cost up to 2 million baht ($61,805) will be reduced by up to 40% this year and next, and by up to 20% for cars priced between 2 million and 7 million baht. Under a previously announced initiative to attract a million wealthy foreigners, including retirees, income tax rates for qualified foreign professionals in specific industries or economic zones were slashed substantially from 35 percent to 17 percent.
