Benefits of an Export / Manufacturing Company


Foreign Ownership

Thailand welcomes foreign investment, particularly businesses that are beneficial to the country’s economy. Unlike the majority Thai limited company, export and manufacturing companies in Thailand can enjoy a privilege of not having to comply with the minimum 51% Thai shareholding requirement.

In order for foreigners in an export or manufacturing company to hold 100% or majority shareholding and rights in a limited company operating the manufacturing or export businesses, there must be no indication or operations of any other business activities when outlining the company’s registered objectives. This means that the company cannot have any source of income other than from the manufacture and export businesses.

Registration Process and Requirements

Export companies in Thailand must register with the Customs department to obtain a paperless import-export license (this requirement also applicable for companies involved in the business of import).

Prior to obtaining this license, the export company should be registered for VAT with the Revenue department and have a corporate bank account in its name in Thailand. Manufacturing companies in Thailand must also check on whether there is a requirement for a factory license, or any other licenses relevant to the manufacturing business. The manufacturing and export companies must apply for all necessary licenses and permissions that may be required for the manufacturing or exporting business, whereby the requirements depend on several factors such as the type of products that will be manufactured and exported out of the Kingdom, and the size of the manufacturing and exporting operations.
