Payroll Cycle

Monthly

Hire employees in Thailand. No entity needed.

Usually, to hire in Thailand, your business needs an entity. That means a local office, an address registered as a subsidiary, and an account with a local bank. All of this, plus navigating regional benefits, payroll, tax, and HR laws, can take months.

Thailand also treats contractors differently than full-time employees, so misclassifying a contractor could lead to fines. Deel lets you hire employees in Thailand quickly, easily, and compliantly. We even automate tax document collection, payroll, benefits, and more.

In the private sector, there is no paid paternity leave by statute in Thailand, although employers are free to offer paid/unpaid time off.  (Both mothers and fathers who are insured by social security receive a THB 13,000 lump sum payment for child delivery).

Public sector employees do receive 15 days of paternity leave, but there is no plan to extend this to the private sector where it can be more difficult for companies to make up for the lost work time by new fathers.

Employees are entitled to 30 days' paid sick leave and they must provide a medical certificate.

A contracting life-changer!

"This has by far the singular tool that made my contracting work amazing. It used to be that contract management and payouts was a nightmare — Deel makes everything so easy especially with its Transferwise integration. Everyone gets paid on time and kept happy. I also contacted their support a couple of times for some small questions and they’ve been nothing short of amazing. If you’re a contractor or someone who hires contractors then definitely give Deel a go."
