Treaty of Amity | Thailand | Thai Law | Business | USA America

The US-Thai Treaty of Amity: Implications for Thai Business Incorporation


Many readers will likely be aware of the fact that pursuant to the provisions of the Thai Foreign Business Act many business endeavors conducted by foreigners in Thailand are subject to strict limitation. It may be possible to obtain a Foreign Business License in order to overcome such statutory limitations, but such licenses are issued pursuant to the discretion of relevant Thai authorities.

Fortunately for American Citizens and corporations wishing to do business in Thailand there is another strategy for conducting business legally notwithstanding the provisions of the Foreign Business Act: The Treaty of Amity and Economic Relations between the United States and Thailand. Promulgated in May 1966 the provisions of the Treaty stipulate that American Citizens (or incorporated entities) may incorporate and/or maintain a majority share in a company in Thailand. The basis for this privilege lies in the provisions of the Treaty which allow those companies incorporated in Thailand with majority American shareholders to be granted “National Treatment”. This provision allows these entities to be treated, from a legal perspective, as though they were Thai companies.

In addition to the routine formalities which apply to all companies formed in Thailand, there are a number of formalities which must be maintained with respect to Amity Treaty Companies. First, it should be noted that an Amity Treaty Company may only have Thai or American shareholders and directors. Therefore, to maintain certification such an entity may not allow a 3rd country foreign national to purchase shares in the company nor allow such an individual or entity to become a director of such an enterprise. Should such a thing come to pass, even after Treaty certification, it could result in the company being de-certified and therefore lead to civil or even criminal liability for failure to comport with the Foreign Business Act.

Furthermore, it should be noted that not all activity will be sanctioned by Thai authorities notwithstanding the Treaty provisions. This is due to the fact that the terms of Treaty itself specifically reserve several types of activity specifically to Thai companies. The restricted activities under the Treaty are as follows:

1.     Land Ownership

2.     Trading agricultural products inside of Thailand

3.     Transportation

4.     Depository Banking (and functions associated therewith)

5.     Fiduciary functions

6.     Development of Land and/or natural resources in Thailand

7.     Communications

The above list rather resembles List 1 of the restricted corporate objectives codified in the terms of the Thai Foreign Business Act. Hence, although the Treaty does have certain restrictions inherent in its terms, such restrictions will, in the vast majority of cases, apply under any other circumstances. Meanwhile, the provisions of the Treaty allow American owned companies which undertake business activities which do not fall into the aforementioned categories to conduct their business without the encumbrances of the Foreign Business Act. Therefore, the US-Thai Treaty of Amity represents arguably the best legal framework under which American individuals and entities can do business in Thailand.

Drone Regulations in Thailand

As mentioned by the Bangkok Post on September 25, 2017:

The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) is stepping up its suppression of illegal drone activities, saying many drone enthusiasts don't realise they are required by law to seek permission before flying...

testimonial 1 Andre D., Belgium (Nakhon Ratchasima – 2015)
Many thanks to Sebastian and his team from Isaan Lawyers for the excellent service I received from them. Having run the gauntLet of "reputable" lawyers in Thailand and their services (...) I finally got results (against all the odds) and won my case in spite of not being able to be present in Court for the appropriate date. I was charged an extremely low fee in comparison to what I gained, and indeed: in comparison to what I had already paid in advance to the non to the non performing but ever-promising Thai legal law firm I had previously approached for help.

testimonial 1 David S., South Africa (case in Buriram)
We were there approximately two hours. They asked us for an extra copy each of my passport and her tabien bahn, which we had. They reviewed the contracts you put together, had us pay 75 Baht and we walked out with my name on the Chanote. Thank you for a job well executed. I will happily recommend your services should the opportunity arise.We also look forward to doing business with you again next year when we move to Thailand, to write up our Thai wills."

testimonial 1 L., Singapore (October 2014)
I was recommended Isaan Lawyers through a fellow countryman who is also a client. My wife and I live in Phuket, where everything is overpriced like there is no tomorrow and with the recommendation from my friend, I wanted to give a law firm from "out of town" a try. I was a little bit hesitant at first, but after dealing with Sebastian and his team, all of that is gone. The support and prep-work beforehand was excellent in everyway and for the first time since long, I have the feeling of not beeing ripped off. I am truly grateful for the services provided and I will return with any future needs I might have. I now consider Isaan Lawyers to be "my lawyer in Thailand" and I feel comfortable of recommending them to anyone.
