Thailand has a civil or codified law system. The main legal codification governing commercial aspects in Thailand is prescribed under the Civil and Commercial Code (“CCC”) and other related Acts which are issued from time to time to govern specific circumstances.
The part of the CCC which refers to companies, called “Company Law” in other jurisdictions, is under Title XXII, “Partnerships and Companies” (Book III of the CCC). The CCC governs the establishment, management, shareholder and partner rights, and liquidation of partnerships and private limited companies. Public Companies are governed by the Public Limited Companies Act B.E. 2535 and the Securities and Exchange Act of the same year and its related Regulations and Announcements. Breaches of the CCC’s provisions concerning “Partnerships and Companies” may be subject to penalties under the “Act on Offence concerning Registered Partnerships, Limited Partnerships, Limited Companies, Associations and Foundation” B.E. 2499.
