The Finance Ministry and the restructured Council of Economic Ministers will now re-review the land and business tax.

If there are no significant changes to the draft bill, agricultural land will be subject to a maximum 0.25% tax, commercial property 2% and residential 0.5%.

This will replace the existing municipal and land and household tax.

Mr Apisak also explained that new measures would be implemented to help the grassroots economy, and will also be sent for Cabinet approval shortly. He said: “Farmers are not the only group that is suffering from the economic slowdown, as there are low-income earners in the capital that are suffering also.”

He went on to say that the measure “should be able to support the economy from slowing down any further”.
