Company Formation and Work Permits
If you are purchasing a business or property in Thailand , the law requires that you register a Thai limited company and, if you are going to work in your business or receive any income from that business, you must apply for a work permit. The penalties for working and receiving an income from your business without a work permit are severe, resulting in possible detention and deportation. The advantages of having a work permit are that you can apply for a 1 year non-immigrant B visa, purchase a car, motorbike, telephone and open a bank account in your own or company name.

If you have decided to make Thailand your home and wish to register a Thai limited Company, the procedure is as follows ;

On arrival, we will introduce you to our lawyers, International law, and they will process the necessary papers to register a company which will take approximately 3 weeks. Once your registration is approved, you can then apply for a 1 year non-immigrant B visa, followed by your application for a work permit. Your work permit will take approximately 1 month to process .
