E-Commerce License Thailand
Obtaining an e-commerce license in Thailand involves a few steps. First, the business must register with the Department of Business Development under the Ministry of Commerce. This includes submitting information such as the business name, address, and details of the business owners.
Next, the business must obtain a value-added tax (VAT) registration from the Revenue Department. This is necessary for businesses that have an annual revenue of more than 1.8 million baht.
After that, the business must register for a commercial registration with the Department of Provincial Administration. This includes submitting information such as the business name, address, and details of the business owners.
Finally, the business must also apply for an e-commerce license from the Ministry of Commerce. This involves submitting information such as the business name, address, and details of the business owners, as well as details about the types of products or services the business will be selling.
It’s worth noting that in Thailand, foreign businesses are not allowed to own more than 49% of the shares of a local company, which may be a requirement to apply for the e-commerce license.
It is advisable to consult with a lawyer and accountant to ensure that all the legal and tax requirements are met.
In addition to the registration and tax requirements mentioned previously, there are a few other requirements that businesses must meet in order to obtain an e-commerce license in Thailand.
