When the company moves its office, it has to register the change with the Department of Business Development. However, in case it is registered in the VAT system, it has to file Form PP09 to change the address with the Revenue Department at least 15 days before registering the change with the Department of Business Development. Failure to do so will result in a fine of a few thousand Baht.
Now to register the change of address with the DBD:
A. Registering the change of address within the same province can be done within one day. However, the preparation of the registration forms and related documents may take much longer.
B. Registering a relocation to another province will result in an amendment of the section 2 “Location of the company’s office” of the company’s Memorandum of Association (MOA). The process will take roughly 20 days with the following steps
1. The MOA can be amended through the Extra Ordinary Shareholder’s Meeting.
2. To summon the meeting, the signatory director will have to send a letter calling for the meeting to shareholders not less than 14 days before the date of the meeting.
3. Once the meeting has been held and the relocation has been approved through the meeting resolution, the relocation can then be registered with the Office of Partnership and Company Registration.
The mentioned process is only for the registration of the relocation of company’s registered office with the Department of Business Development. You also have to notify the Social Security Office if you have been registered with it when you first had an employee. Contact MSNA Group for your business needs in Thailand.
