Thailand really offers a wealth of opportunities from small, family run businesses to large investment projects. Foreign expertise is required and in some sectors even subsidised with extensive Government support and tax holidays. Whilst work permits and residency must be obtained the benefits are high and taxation is low.
In the lower sector there are a myriad of small businesses up for sale. Many have been created by foreigners who now wish to retire or move elsewhere, some examples of ready-made and running businesses:-
