Thailand BOI or Board of Investment operates under the Ministry of Industry and is the principal government agency for encouraging investment, and also acts as Thailand’s marketing arm and actively promotes the country worldwide as one of the best investment locations in Asia.
The BOI offers an attractive and competitive package of tax incentives, imposes no foreign equity restrictions on manufacturing activities or on some service, provides assistance in the provision of visas and work permits to facilitate entry and subsequent operation for a foreign-owned business and waives restrictions on land ownership by foreign entities.
If you are looking to do business in Asia, you need to consider getting investment promotion from the BOI.
