Annual audit in Thailand.

Under Thai law any registered legal entity (irrespective of whether it is a limited company, a foreign company operating in Thailand or a registered partnership) is obliged to prepare and keep its accounts and file an annual audit.

Audit services for Thailand business.

All legal entities registered in Thailand have a legal obligation to prepare and keep accounts (this includes limited companies, registered partnerships and even foreign juristic persons conducting business in Thailand). Failing to do so is a criminal offence and any wrongdoing in this regard may result in a penalty amounting up to 200,000 THB. There are many steps involved both before and after an audit report has been prepared and it is important that you as a company choose a service provider that is wholly transparent with their pricing of the entire process, not just the minor task of having an audit report crafted and signed.

After the annual audit.

There are several requirements that need to be fulfilled after the audit report has been signed. The post-signing processes are also covered by our auditing package:

Step 1

After the audit has been completed we will send a copy to be reviewed and signed by a director in your company

Step 2

If you have any taxes to pay we will inform you of this and once we receive a cheque or cash payment from your company, we will settle your dues with the Revenue Department

Step 3

After the auditor has signed the Audit Report, the company must:
  1. Advertise in a local newspaper announcing to the public that there will be a meeting of shareholders
  2. Send a formal invitation to all shareholders (within seven days)
  3. Create minutes of the meeting
  4. Finish all formal requirements within 30 days of having the audit report signed by an auditor
As is evident from the description above, the process takes some preparation and time, so don’t hesitate to contact us about your firm’s annual audit.
