Starting a Business In Thailand
I am new to this forum, i wonder if you can help me!!!
I am currently looking into starting my own business in books, looking to do this in thailand. But i am unsure what the actual requirements and costs are.
Does any one have information or point me in the right direction.
If so that would be great.
Hello Nick --
The right direction for any foreigner starting a business in Thailand is very simple: Don't go there!
Successful businesses here -- owned by foreigners -- are very few and far between.
The reason is that the Thais have been practicing for generations how to lie, cheat, and steal from outsiders.
In addition to that, one must consider the corruption -- it's everywhere.
As a business owner, you'll be very visible and very vulnerable.
Your chances of keeping your investment, let alone making any profit, are very slim.
But, of course, don't believe what I say.
Don't believe what anybody writes on any Internet forum.
The only way to know is to look for yourself:
Come to Thailand, look around, talk to others who are running businesses here.
