Investment Promotion (BOI)

Board of Investment (BOI) is a government unit established to attract both Thai and foreign investors to the country. They promote certain business by giving tax and non-tax privileges.

  • Tax Privileges includes reduction of corporate income tax and exempt of custom.
  • Non-Tax Privileges includes right to freely 100% owned by foreigner, owning land, benefit for visa and work permit.


As mentioned above, for foreign investors, they can take an advantage from the non-tax benefits to be 100% foreign owned company without applying for foreign business license (FBL). The FBL and BOI applications are actually similar (in terms of details for filing) but not the same! The FBL is a license which requires you to obtain as a foreign company while BOI is a promotion that comes with benefits.


Some Samples of Business Eligible for BOI

The business types that they promote is adjustable almost every year depending on the current government policy, here are some samples:


Trade and Investment Support Office (TISO)

Energy Service Company

Data Center
