Investing in Thailand and ASEAN – Trust in Our Experience!

Investing in Thailand is the royal road to establishing a presence in ASEAN. The World Bank’s prediction that the AEC will be the most stable and sustainable economic region globally until 2035 only highlights this fact. We, the Sanet ADVISORS, have assisted numerous companies from a wide range of fields with the location selection, planning, and tendering of their production all the way up to the SOP.

Strategy Consulting, Feasibility Studies and Location Search

For investments in Thailand or Vietnam, we accompany you every step of the way, from the development of your strategy up until the start of your production. We make sure that you have taken in everything there is to consider from the very beginning.  We discuss the project structure for your investment plans, also examining and comparing both legal and corporate feasibility in multiple countries. We work together with you to conduct a search for the right location in Asia, as well as to analyze your land options, the job market, potential suppliers and the logistical environment.

Needless to say, we also are in contact with reliable vendors who are capable of handling your construction or installation needs. We also navigate the tender process for you.

In the end, it is you who makes the decisions; we are there to make sure you do so with the information.  Sanet ASEAN ADVISORS acts as your right-hand man on the ground.

Legal Structure of Investments

All the ASEAN member-states have their own laws regarding land ownership, factory licensing, corporate structuring, or area of activity. Visas, work permits, bank accounts and tax registration are all subject to strict provisions in all of these countries.

Our legal experts at Sanet Legal know what they are doing. We help you safely make your way through these regulations.

Duty-free Export out of Thailand

ASEAN is a free-trade hub for 3.2 billion consumers.  The seal “Made in ASEAN” allows you duty-free access to China, India, Japan, Korea, Australia and New Zealand, as well as the other 10 ASEAN member-states and their 600 million consumers. We, the Sanet ASEAN ADVISORS, help you find the best way for you to obtain a seal of  Local Content for your certificate of origin as an export product from an ASEAN country.

Investment promotion in Thailand and ASEAN

Do you want to have access to 8 years of tax exemptions, be able to import machines and material duty-free, and even be able to own land? The investment programs sponsored by the Board of Investment (BOI) offer several different types of such incentives for foreign investments.

Our team at Sanet will show you what is possible. In addition to being well connected with the relevant authorities, we also negotiate the funding measures in tandem with the legal experts Sanet Legal in a competent manner. You will also enjoy VIP status as a Sanet Client if you decide to set up in an industrial park in Thailand or Vietnam, which often offer exactly the type of infrastructure that you need.

Sanet was engaged and reliable in providing their guidance, which ranged from strategy development to the tendering of construction projects. I still have a friendly relationship with the team to this day.

We involved Sanet in our strategy for Asia at an early stage. Even when something didn’t immediately go to plan we were always able to rely on Sanet, and as a result we still maintain a good relationship with them to the present day.
