Employee - Thailand

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.

    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."
