Company in Thailand: stages of registration

Preparation and approval of the name of the company

Our experts recommend providing at least 3 unique variants of the name for the future business, taking into consideration that all those consonant with the already existing names will be rejected. The preferable language of approval is Thai. If the founder registers business in Thailand with the name in English, he needs to provide the correct phonetic translation.

There are the following conditions for the approval of the name:

  1. It is prohibited to use the word "investment", as well as a number of terms, full list of which can be clarified by the legal experts of our company.
  2. Non-residents of Thailand need to use the services of translator for phonetic interpretation of the name and for preparation of documents, otherwise the mistakes may occur.
  3. The name approved when registering the company in Thailand is reserved for one month until positive decision on the establishment of new business. During this time the applicant shall go through all the stages of registration, because the extension of reservation is impossible.
  4. When selecting the name, the preference should be given to brief, but succinct ones, so that potential users and partners are not confused when writing and compiling the documentation.

Drawing up the Memorandum of Association

The document contains information about the name of the company, the actual address of its location in the territory of the state, the type of activity, the amount of nominal capital, the data regarding the founders and samples of their signatures. If there are several founders, then in addition to the data on each one, it is necessary to indicate the amount of their shares in the business. When registering company in Thailand, the founding agreement is signed by the founders and two witnesses.

Holding of the shareholders' meetings

The procedure is necessary for detailed analysis of issues related to registration of the form of ownership. the general director, auditors and managers are appointed at the meeting, as well as the allocation of their responsibilities is also carried out thereat. The main reason according to which the meeting is required is the drafting of the Charter. This is the necessary document when registering company in Thailand.

Registration of constituent documents and obtaining the taxpayer's number

The documentation package is collected by the specialists of our company, and the founder should fill in the application according to sample and with the help of lawyers. After verification of all the documents, they are transferred to the Ministry of Commerce of Thailand.
