Thai Customs has extended the effective period of the Voluntary Audit Programme (VAP) that expired on 31 December 2016. It's now 31 December 2017.
The key principles of the VAP remain the same as the 2016 VAP. For instance, offences that render companies ineligible to join the programme are those relating to smuggling of goods, evasion of duty with proof of fraudulent intent, evasion of import/export restrictions, and counterfeit trading, along with offences that were also disclosed under previous VAPs. In addition, companies that are currently under audit, investigation, or internal process by the Customs, Department of Special Investigation (DSI), or Economic Crime Suppression Division will not be eligible.
