Default Moving to Thailand & working remotely question!!

Hello

I am in the process of moving to Thailand (Phuket is lovely!) but wanted to check whether it would be possible to continue to work as a consultant for UK or other non-Thailand companies while staying in Thailand? To be clear, i would be planning to work (and earn income) while i am in Thailand, working remotely, using emails/skype meetings/calls.

Specifically, i am looking to check how this will work for tax and any work permit purposes?

To clarify - i would ideally be doing the move via the retirement visa scheme (have already got all my docs and applications ready so i am all good in that respect).

any help would be much appreciated!
