    On questions that most companies and people concerning about, we would like to provide the following information. 


    Legal risks

    The joint venture requires a minimum of 2 shareholders and a maximum of 50, of whom there should be at least one Thai shareholder with a share ratio of no less than 51%. Practically, there are normally 2 Thai shareholders arranged in order to reduce the probability of disputes and increase the possibility of winning. 

    After the registration, Thai people and partners from other countries will jointly shoulder corresponding legal responsibilities. You don’t have to worry about that. Our services can help you with this problem and stay away from risks. 


    Naming your company

    Mandarin will offer 3 to 5 English names. The review period will last for 3 to 5 days without any expenses. After the confirmation of the name, you should hand in documents for registration within one month.  


    Registered capital

    Generally, one million Baht is the starting line. If you need to apply for a work visa, then it should be determined by requirements made by Thailand about the registered capital for a work visa. More capital does not mean the better. Actually, in practical operation, registered capital is highly related to the registration fee and the following financial accounting. The more registered capital is, the following-up fee will be higher. So, we don’t recommend you write a high registered capital.


    Bank accounts

    After registration, you need to open an account for the company. Theoretically, the legal person should be present personally, but the account can also be opened on behalf of by others. With the presence of the legal person, it takes 7 working days to complete the audit, and with the absence of a legal person, it takes about 20 working days. A baht account or a dollar account may be opened.


    Tax registration

    Companies with an annual turnover of more than 1.8 million Baht are registered to pay Value Added Taxed (VAT) within 30 days since the date when the annual turnover exceeds that amount. If the annual income is less than 1.8 million Baht, VAT is not necessary to be registered initially. 

    After the establishment of the company, you need a professional accountant to handle the accounts and tax declaration. This not only saves costs and time greatly, but also can give you an optimal tax plan within the framework of the law, and tax risks can be effectively managed. 


    The importance of trademark registration

    After the establishment of the company, you need to register the brand name as a trademark to protect it, enhance its own value, expand its popularity, build a protective wall for your goods and services. You can hand these affairs over to Mandarin. It is much faster.



    Mandarin can also help with other affairs such as the official seal for the company. You don’t need to engrave the seal by yourself.
