How do I deduct withholding tax from an invoice?


In line with the law, if you are based in Thailand, you may deduct withholding tax from the pre-VAT total. The percentage you deduct depends on how you will use our services:

If you are going to use your credits ONLY for advertising
Deduct 2% for “Advertising”

If you are going to use your credits ONLY for viewing resumes
Deduct 3% for "Service Charge"

If you are going to use credits for both viewing resumes AND for advertising
Deduct 3% for “Service Charge”


You purchase 10 Credits that you intend to use to view resumes only ("Service Charge"). The cost of the 10 Credit pack is 1,700 Baht. This means that the VAT is 119 Baht, making the total of your invoice 1,819 Baht.

You must deduct the 3% withholding tax from the pre-VAT amount of 1,700 Baht. 3% of 1,700 is 51. Therefore, your new pre-VAT total is 1,649 Baht.

Then, you must add the FULL VAT back onto the total: 1,649 + 119 = 1,768 Baht -- this is the amount you must pay at the bank. You may alter the pay-in slip by yourself.

The 51 Baht withholding tax that you deducted must now be paid to the Revenue Department by the 7th of the following month.


You must send the original withholding tax certificate to us before we can send your receipt to you. The original withholding tax certificate should be sent to the address at the top of your invoice.


You must also submit a copy of the withholding tax certificate to your accounting department so that the amount you deducted can be paid to the revenue department in compliance with the law.

Please ask your accountant for full details about this if you are unsure. Deducting an incorrect figure for withholding tax can delay your order!
