It is good to know that the Thai company formation is an easy process which requires the same legal steps as for any company registration in Thailand. Make sure to buy or rent a suitable place with enough space to install the laundromats and the dryers. As for the documents and additional requirements, we remind that you should reserve a name for your laundry business, open a bank account, register for VAT and solicit the needed licenses in order to properly start your activities.
According to the Thai Foreign Business Act, any overseas entrepreneur who wants to open a company in Thailand must apply for a license with the Foreign Licensing Department, including the ones who want to set up a laundry business in the city-state. You must obtain permits from the water pollution and health departments in Thailand.
