My wife has a shop in the Market. She is the owner, but it isn't a company. Can I get a work permit to help her out at times? Thank you in advance...

From the info you have provided i would say no.

Your girl needs a company and to be paying 4 thai workers tax and you need to pay falang tax which is a lot higher than thai tax.

The set up cost for you to do this with paying any tax is around 40'000 baht.

Sorry , the answer is no.

Need to be employed by a company that has a ratio of Thai/foreigner of 7:1 I believe.

The answers above is even without considering the list of jobs allowed to Aliens......

^Got called to work before I could type that bit :-)

Although there was a farang on Thai TV a couple of weeks ago working on a som tam stall in Isaan somewhere, he may have had residency though.

you would need a xcompany. you will also need a work VISA.

you will need to be earning 50K a month and payign tax and insurance on that

registered for VAT

if you are legally married, you will need TWO not 4 employees

you wont get a market rtraders job, its on the exclusion list

That's the one. We're looking into this for a view of setting up in Bangkok and that's similar advice to what we're told.

How do they calculate the capitalised value here ?

They dont......

you just issue 20,000 common shares at a 100B a pop.

only 25% have to be paid up at time of registration. Can be used as operating cost or be withdrawn in full..

I have seen a few doing it so it is a case of just doing it. the only problem would be if another trader complained about it
