10 IV PRIVATE BENEFIT PLANS Background Information Under the Provident Fund Act of 1987, an approved provident fund has significant tax advantages. In order to qualify for these advantages, the following requirements have to be met: The contribution plan should identify a fund committee and set the minimum levels of contribution The plan must be registered and managed by an approved fund manager The plan must be registered with the Ministry of Finance. Provident funds providing lump sum benefits upon retirement, death or disability are common. Group life and group medical plans are mostly provided by subsidiaries of foreign corporations or very large local corporations. Group life plans with accidental death and dismemberment riders and medical plans are commonly provided by foreign companies (as well as some local corporations). For companies with at least 10 employees that do not have a provident fund, an Employee Welfare Fund will be established to compensate employees who resign, are laid off, or die in service. Employers and employees will be required to contribute to this fund. The benefits at retirement are equal to the total of employer and employee contributions, plus interest. Eligibility For retirement plans, all regular full-time permanent employees are eligible after a minimum of one year of service. Contributions Employees normally contribute from 2% to maximum of the lesser THB 200,000 or 15% of pensionable salary. Employers must match the employee contributions and might pay higher contributions for employees with long service. Retirement Retirement Age Normal retirement: 60M/F Provident funds are usually set up as follows: Pensionable Salary: 12 times the basic monthly salary. Pensionable Service: Complete years and months from entry into plan until retirement. Retirement : The retirement benefit is a lump sum representing the account balance made up from employer and employee contributions along with credited investment earnings. It is not common to provide retirement pensions. Disability : The account balance is paid upon permanent total disability. Death : The account balance is paid upon death. Employee Reference Manual Swiss Life Network

11 Vesting No legal vesting regulations exist. The company-paid portion of the account balance is normally partially vested after 5 years, and fully vested after 10 years. Death Typical life and accidental death and dismemberment coverage is between 1/2 and 3 times annual salary on a noncontributory basis. If a contributory basis is applied, it is usually in the form of a flat sum insured for all employees. Disability and Sickness Most group life insurance plans include a permanent disability rider. The Labour Law permits all employees to take sick leave until recovered. During sick leave, they are entitled to receive full salary for a maximum of 30 days per year. Medical/Health Most plans cover all salaried employees. Plans are often non-contributory. When coverage is provided for dependants, employees often pay part of the premium for this coverage. An average plan provides the following benefits: Hospital Daily room and board (R&B) Private THB 2,300 - THB 4,000 Semi-private THB 1,500 - THB 1,500 Ward THB THB 1,000 Maximum days, per illness 31 Hospital services x R&B Out-patient treatment (emergency) THB 10,000 Surgery and anaesthesia benefits Maximum benefit for surgery x (R&B) Average charge for appendectomy THB 5,000 Doctor s Visits In-hospital THB 1,00 1,500 Maximum number of visits per illness 31 Out-of-hospital (some insurance companies THB 500 cover this, but most exclude it) Maternity Normal delivery THB 30,000 - THB 60,000 Caesarean 200% of normal delivery Abortion 50% of normal delivery Employee Reference Manual Swiss Life Network

Employees must contribute at least 2% of annual base salary to the fund. The employer contributions must at least match the employee contributions and may not exceed 15% of the annual base salary of the employee. The scheme must be overseen by a fund committee and led by an approved fund manager. Contributions Employer contributions to a registered provident fund are tax-deductible up to 15% of annual base salary of the employee and are not considered taxable income for the employee. Any other contributions, premiums and benefits paid by the employer are fully tax-deductible. Employee contributions to a registered provident fund are tax-deductible up to THB 300,000 per annum. Employee contributions to group life and group medical plans are not tax-deductible. Lump sum retirement benefits from a registered provident fund attributable to the employee contributions are taxfree. The portion of benefits attributable to employer contributions and investment earnings is not taxable up to a certain limit which depends on the employee s salary and period of service. 50% of any benefit in excess of this will be taxed as income. Other termination benefits are tax-deductible for the employer and tax-free for the employee up to a certain limit, plus 50% of the balance.
