With complex compliance and regulatory regimes for non-profits in Thailand, organisations are increasingly seeking out legal assistance to understand how to carry out their activities in Thailand. This guide aims to provide organisations with an overview of the Thai legal framework for non-profits, to help organisations select the most appropriate legal structure for their work and understand the associated compliance and regulatory framework. The guide identifies the advantages and disadvantages of each structure and sets out the relevant registration procedures, regulatory and governance considerations, tax treatment as well as finance and fundraising options – an understanding of all is so crucial to ensuring the sustainability, good governance and success of an organisation.
A key priority for TrustLaw, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono service, is to support organisations who are addressing environmental, humanitarian and social problems across the globe. We have produced a number of guides in collaboration with leading law firms to help NGOs and social enterprises around the world. These guides are vital tools for many organisations, and demonstrate the commitment of TrustLaw and our legal members to strengthen the social sector.
