The Finance Ministry collected net income of Bt1.83 trillion in the first nine months of the fiscal year, through June 30, up 5.4 per cent from the same period last year, inspector-general and spokesperson Kulaya Tantitemit said on Monday.



 

She said the total was Bt62.4 billion, or about 3.5 per cent, higher than the earlier forecast for the first three quarters.

This was the result of state agencies remitting more money than forecast to the ministry and the country also collecting more petroleum, auto and tobacco taxes than had been estimated, she explained.
