Investment Incentives

The operative environment for foreign investors in Thailand is very clear-cut. There are two main entities which provide advice and support, the Thai Board of Investment (BOI), an agency under the Office of the Prime Minister, and the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT), a department of the Ministry of Industry.

Their role is to promote foreign investment in Thailand by providing information, services and incentives and accompany foreign investors as they venture into the country. The BOI has a generic purpose of informing foreign investors about eligible activities and criteria for investment promotion, while the IEAT is focused on industrial estates, having a more hands-on assignment of managing and operating both IEAT’s own managed sites and industrial estates that are jointly developed by private developers. IEAT therefore imposes specific laws and regulations industrial estates and manufacturers within have to comply with.

The Thai government provides a wide range of incentives and investor-friendly regulations to attract investment from around the world. Available incentives include right to bring in foreign skilled workers and their spouses with visa and work permit facilitation, right to own land by 100% foreign capital.

The BOI has set a focus on innovative sectors for higher incentives, including robotics, medical technology, electric vehicles, digital technology and innovations in telecommunication, eco-friendly petrochemicals and plastics and food innovation, among others to support Thailand 4.0, the government’s ambitious 20-year strategy to accelerate the country’s development to a more advanced level.

In addition to basic investment incentives such as tax and duty exemptions, the BOI also introduced merit-based incentives for competitiveness enhancement, technology and innovation, human resources development and a series of promotion measures to encourage investments that will reduce impact on the environment and support sustainable development.

As both Amata City Chonburi and Amata City Rayong are located in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) area, your business may qualify for additional incentives with additional benefits and grants, including exemption of corporate income taxes and duties or special visas issued by the EEC office.
