THAI LEGAL FEES:

Below are the Updated Law Costs  as at  2010 & are subject to change. We reserve the right to initiate these changes as and when govt fees increase & changes occur without notice. All company formations are different and may require different licenses or regulations so the prices below are a guide only.

EXAMPLE OF OUR COSTS: 2M BAHT COMPANY:  25,000 baht our fees excluding VAT & Govt fees as each company share registration increases per 2m baht as at March 2007. For a 2m baht company Total additional fees to pay will be around 13,500 baht which will include tax, memorandum, share reg fees are 5000 baht per 1m baht. However you may have to show your share capital in the bank ie. 2 m baht.  If increasing your share capital you must show this extra money in your bank now & 2 m baht in the bank if you employ another foreigner per foreigner each time you increase.  Please also remember companies levies vary according to what business a company will perform. Our costs change due to this so use only as a general guideline. 

USA Amity Company--please ask and only available for US residents setting up in Thailand or go to the section on Amity Treaty but before you think of starting one you must have an existing Thai Company.  Our costs to travel are priced once we start working for you. Wherever possible we limit travel and work via our own Thai representatives in Pattaya. We do have lawyers in Bangkok, Pattaya, Korat, Phuket and use a Corporate law Office in Bangkok. If we send our lawyer to Bangkok fees do not include travelling / expense costs.

REAL ESTATE:

Title Deed search (Court/ Title Office & full English report) 10,000 baht. However if our Lawyers need to travel out of ChiangMai the cost is 6000-10,000 baht. Changing ownership papers  up to 10,000 baht per transaction depending on the work involved & translations. Onsite House Report= 6000 baht for an old House (over 2 years) & 3000 baht for a new house in ChiangMai (add travel expenses but ask us). This 6-8 page comprehensive report provides buyers with a maintenance report, condition of the property they wish to buy and recommendations from plumbing to foundations to electrical etc -- conducted by our foreign Realty Company. This report is a must if you are thinking about buying a house as we conduct this report in conjunction with a title search and can advise you whether you should or should not purchase as well as the value of the property& recommendations for the buyer & or seller. Should you be buying and require our services to oversee this work we charge a set fee according to time required of us.
