The Department of Business Development (DBD), Ministry of Commerce, keeps records of certain information, such as company affidavits and financial information, for Thai legal entities, and the public can browse its “data warehouse” website and see this information. Previously, this information was only in Thai, so it was not very useful for foreign investors. However, the DBD recently updated the data warehouse, and some information is now available in English.

The information available in English includes the company’s name, registered address, branches, directors’ names, authorization of directors, financial information (such as the balance sheet and profit and loss statement), nationality and ratio of shareholders, and type of foreign business licence (if any).
In addition, this information can be downloaded in PDF or Excel format. Furthermore, the updated data warehouse is more user friendly, as it is also compatible with mobile phones, and there is no need to apply for a user ID or to register your information.
