FAQs about business registration in Thailand

Updated 22 January 2021

How long does it take to form a company in Thailand?

Registering a company in Thailand from the Ministry of Commerce takes around 7 days for a private company and up to 30 days for a public company.

Can foreigners set up a company in Thailand?

There are rules which set out the ways in which foreigners can register and operate businesses in Thailand. In some cases, businesses can be registered in the names of non-Thai nationals, but in certain business areas, the company must be at least 51% Thai owned. If you want to set up a public company, at least half of your directors should be Thai.

What if my business activity is restricted?

A Foreign Business License (FBL) in Thailand can be awarded to a Foreign company that wishes to operate a business that is normally restricted to Foreign nationals under Thai Law. The minimum capital requirement for the formation of such a company in Thailand is 2 million THB.

What are the options for companies who want to set up a limited company, but the majority of it's shares are owned by a foreigner?

?Basically, foreigners are not allowed to own 100% shares of any business in Thailand, unless you are a US citizen that can register through the Treaty of Amity.

However, there are two other options available.  Firstly, you can obtain a Foreign Business License, get a promotion from the Board of Investment (BOI).

We do not advise our clients to use nominee shareholders, which is illegal and uncontrollable. Most law firms that advise nominee shareholders use their lower level staff to hold shares for you when those people do not understand that they are breaking the law. And they can never prove easily that they have the money to invest in your business.

Who can get promoted by Thailand Board of Investment (BOI)?

Board of Investment (BOI) shall be in charge of licensing for company entitled to investment promotion.

Generally, companies that are given priority for Thai BOI licensing are those involved in:
1. Agriculture and Agricultural Products;
2. Mining, Ceramics and Basic Metals;
3. Light Industry;
4. Metal Products, Machinery and Transport Equipment;
5. Electronic Industry and Electric Appliances;
6. Chemicals, Paper, and Plastics;
7. Technology and Innovation Development

Non-industrial businesses such as public utilities are also promoted by the Thai BOI with investment incentives.

What are the allowed activities for representative offices?

A Foreign company will usually set up a Representative Office in Thailand so that it can be responsible for certain non-expenditure activities of the Foreign company. A Representative Office cannot generate income for the Foreign company in Thailand. Some of the activities a representative office may engage in include:
- To source for goods or services in Thailand for the head office.
- To check and control the quality and quantity of goods purchased or hired to manufacture in Thailand by the head office.
- To give advice concerning goods of the head office sold to agents or consumers.
- The propagating of information concerning new goods or services of the head office.
- To report on business trends in Thailand to the head office.

What companies are eligible for international business center status?

A Thai-incorporated company that meets the following requirements is eligible to apply for IBC status:
1. Maintains a minimum of THB 10 million in paid-up capital;
2. Employs at least 10 skilled employees (or at least five skilled employees for treasury services);
3. Incurs at least THB 60 million in annual expenses (payable to recipients in Thailand) relating to qualifying activities and income; and
