FOR RENT: WELTZ RESIDENCES,STUDIO - PRAKANONG, BTS-SUKHUMVIT

Purchasing property for rental income is a popular option among expats in Thailand. This is mainly due to the relatively low property prices that can give a good return on investment. Areas that are popular for this include the cities of Chiang Mai, Bangkok and tourist areas such as Pattaya and Phuket. Those that are located in tourist areas tend to be short term lets, while those in the cities are aimed at longer term tenants.

The most popular areas of the cities are the business districts and many are rented by companies who need to house expat workers. There is also usually a difference in the quality of the rental property. Those in the tourist hot-spots are usually more luxurious as the rental yield is higher, while long term lets in the city only need to be fairly basic.

Finding Employment in Thailand

Finding Employment in Thailand

It is not very easy to find a job in Thailand. The country has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in the world and last year it was just 1%.

Thai companies are only permitted to take on foreign staff if they can prove that the job cannot be carried out by a Thai person. One of the main options for an English-speaking expat to find work is to become a TEFL teacher. Those who have English language and teaching skills are always in demand and there are many positions available each year.

Self-Employment and Business Start Ups in Thailand

Many of Joe Lizzerd’s clients who move to Pattaya, including those who originally intended to retire, often find themselves edventually wanting to either be self-employed, or start a small business to keep busy or enjoy the challenge of accomplishing something successful.

It is considered that the process for starting a business in Thailand for an expat is fairly complicated. All documentation must be in Thai. There is also the Foreign Business Act which restricts the type of business that can be started by an expat and may also restrict the amount of shares which can be owned by an expat in any business.
