Exemption from corporate income tax

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Thailand has not ignored the production of components for HEVs and PEVs either. In 2012 it began
offering eight-year exemptions from corporate income tax (with a cap) for investment in the manufacture of vehicle parts involving advanced technologies, including batteries for HEVs, PHEVs, and BEVs, as well
as traction motors “for automobiles such as hybrid or fuel-cell cars” (Kaewsang, 2013). Producers of these
and other qualifying products can extend the number of years of exemption from corporate income tax
depending on the share of R&D expenditures in their total revenues (Table 9).
