the government’s net revenue collection in the first 8 months of fiscal year 2020 (October 2019 – May 2020), was 1,500,261 million baht, which was 189,695 million baht or 11.2% lower than revenue target. Revenue collection was lower than the target due to the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the implementation of government’s relief measures to support additional liquidity to individuals and businesses, especially the deadline extension of several types of tax to September 2020 and withholding tax rate reduction. The revenue collection in this fiscal year is, therefore, unable to compare with the revenue collection in normal situation, which should be taken into consideration.
