Setting up of Representative Office in Thailand is required to fulfil on certain conditions which require a Foreign Business License. It is important to clarify beforehand what constitutes income and subject to Thai taxes.

Most foreign investors and companies in Thailand who would like to setup a 100% foreign owned business in Thailand most times resort to establishing a Thai representative office to represent its head office overseas.

However, a representative office in Thailand is not allowed to engage in any trading business activities in Thailand hence it cannot earn an income in the country. If you wish to engage in trading activities then you will have to consider registering a Thai company.

• Sourcing goods and services in Thailand

• Inspecting and controlling the quality and quantity of goods purchased or ordered to be manufactured in Thailand
