Corporate due diligence investigation and Contract enforcement

Before entering into a business relationship with a Thai company, it is highly recommended to conduct a preliminary research on the company in question. At Smart Legal Solutions we provide clear corporate reports in English within 5 business days to verify if the company in question is a legitimate company that can comply with the terms of the agreement. Our reports include the following corporate information about the company in question:

  • Current status of the company to ensure that the company is registered with the Thai Ministry of Commerce and operational.
  • Date of company registration and current company address.
  • Commercial objectives of the company to confirm that the company has legal capacity to carry out the requested commercial activity.
  • Name of the current directors of the company with authorized binding signature. It should be noted that if the contract is signed by a person other than the one listed in the Ministry of Commerce, the company will not be responsible of breaching the contract in the event of a legal dispute.
  • Information on the company's registered capital and the balance of assets and losses for the previous year. We will confirm that the company has sufficient assets to meet the payments as per the contract.

Foreign persons or companies may enter into contracts and establish contractual relationships with Thai nationals. The place where the obligations of the contract are to be discharged may be the country of residence of any such foreigner, and the employees of the parties carrying out the obligations may be mainly non-Thais who do not reside in Thailand.

In order for an agreement to be clearly binding and enforceable, it is necessary to ensure that it is signed by the correct combination of duly authorized representatives, with the company’s seal where required.

Written contracts will generally be enforced in Thai courts using similar principles to those that exist in western countries. The Thai Courts of Justice are classified into three levels consisting of Courts of First Instance, Courts of Appeal and the Supreme Court. 

Foreign investors that enter into Thailand-related investment transactions should consider using Thai courts as their venue for resolving disputes. Foreign judgments are not enforceable in the Kingdom, so a plaintiff would have to initiate a new lawsuit in Thailand to pursue a defendant’s Thai assets or otherwise enforce a contract.

However, foreign arbitral awards are enforceable in Thailand, as Thailand is a signatory to the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards.
