Default 180+ days in Thailand

Considering taking some extended time off work (paid and unpaid) in Thailand which could see us in the country >180days and therefore consider tax resident.

While I would continue to be paid my salary overseas for most of this duration, as I wouldn't technically be working in Thaialnd (rather on leave) would I still be liable to pay income tax on this salary in Thailand?

As always, tax questions depend heavily on personal circumstance so I'm not looking for a definitive answer but maybe some 'case studies' of individuals who have done similar.

PS: my circumstances would enable to to get a visa for this duration.

How would the Thai authorities know anything about your financial situation!! unless you tell them. All you should worry about is your visa.

I don't think you have to pay for some sort of taxes while holidaying in Thailand and they won't even meddle on how you receive your income. They might ask prior or as a part of your visa application/renewal, but I agree with nonthaburi, your visa is of utmost importance. Best of luck and enjoy your vacay!

I agree with everyone else. If you are on vacation you should not need to seek tax residence status. The only exception is if you are trying to reduce the tax in your normal country of residence. In this case you need to look for any double taxation agreement between your normal residence and Thailand. You will probably find that to become non-resident in your home country the authorities will want some evidence of declaring tax in Thailand. But Thailand taxes on the remittance basis so if you are in the position to put enough money in Thailand from the outset and not remit any of this year's income into Thailand there may be a benefit.
