The Customs Department is offering bill payment services through online banking, counter service and bank branches to create more convenience for taxpayers and comply with the national e-payment strategy.
With the new bill payment service, taxpayers no longer need to visit the Customs Department to pay taxes, said director-general Krisada Chinavicharana.
The tax-collecting department yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the country’s four largest banks — Bangkok Bank (BBL), Siam Commercial Bank (SCB), Kasikornbank (KBank) and Krungthai…
Bank (KTB) — to enable taxpayers to pay bills through the banks’ online and branch channels.
The deal is part of efforts to move the Customs Department towards fully electronic payments.
The department recently joined hands with state-owned KTB to launch Krungthai Logistics Card, enabling shippers to pay customs taxes and fees on both exports and imports, cargo fees for Thai Airways International… and Bangkok Flight Services, and port fees for the Port Authority of Thailand and privately owned ports.
