Here in Thailand, setting up a Thai Limited Company is the most popular approach for businesses and organizations to foreigners looking to do business in Thailand due to its flexibility. This form of entity is similar to a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in the United States or a Private Limited (Pte. Ltd.) in Singapore. To create a Thai Limited Company, you will need to have at least three shareholders while being managed by at least one director. As this is just a requirement, the shareholder's participation in the company can be limited by the decisions of the directors as they are ultimately responsible for managing the company’s affairs.

Once creating a Thai Limited Company, you have the option to decide whether you would like it as a Thai majority-owned company or a foreign majority-owned company. This will be determined based on the percentage of shares split across the shareholders of the company. At Pim accounting, we can take the initial step for you by handling all documentation and communications with the government to allow a smooth process.

If you would like a Thai majority-owned company limited, Thai nationals must own at least 51% of shares in the company. With the majority of the shares being Thai, a Foreign Business License (FBL) will not be required. It is important to note that a Thai majority-owned company will generally not encounter restrictions.

If you would like a Foreign majority-owned company limited, Foreign nationals must own over 51% of shares in the company. All business operations and activities as a foreign majority-owned company are governed by the Foreign Business Act. This will require the company to obtain a Foreign Business License before commencing any operations in Thailand.
