Entertainment licence fees in limbo

PHUKET CITY: Wisut Romin, Deputy Secretary of the Phuket Provincial Administration Office, has hinted that licence fees may be waived for entertainment businesses damaged by the tsunami.

K. Wisut told the Gazette today that the office had yet to receive details of the new fees – originally due to be announced in December 2004 by the Department of Local Administration.

He said, “We did get an instruction telling us about the possible licence fees, but that was in December and we haven’t heard anything since. It could be that the government has decided that the tsunami disaster takes priority over licence fees…

“It is possible that the license fees may be waived to relieve businesses hit by the tsunami, but that’s just my opinion.”
