In a Thai majority-owned limited company, where Thai nationals own at least 51% of the company's shareholding, a Foreign Business License (FBL) is not required. In contrast, a business with over 49% foreign ownership must obtain an FBL before commencing its operations in Thailand and are governed by the Foreign Business Act.
