Investment Privileges from I-EA-T

Investment Privileges from I-EA-T

For the industrial estate to serve as the manufacturing base that contributes to industrial operators’ competitiveness; aside from the infrastructure system, facilities, and the management system; there is the need to put in place privileges that help industrial operators with business facilitation – equipping them with the ability of choosing to trade in their market of choice, domestic or export, based on current competition conditions.

There are two types of industrial estate zones:

1) General Industrial Zone (GIZ)

2) I-EA-T Free Zone

Industrial operators in both zones are eligible to following opportunities, options, and privileges:

Non-Tax Privileges for investment in both GIZ and I-EA-T Free Zone

1) The right to own land in an industrial estate

2) The right to bring in foreign skilled workers, with visa and work permit facilitation

3) The right to bring in foreign skilled workers’ spouses and dependents, with visa facilitation

4) The right to remit money abroad

5) The right to receive additional privileges from Thailand’s Board of Investment (BOI) when applying for investment promotion

Tax Privileges for investment in I-EA-T Free Zone

1) The right to receive non-tax privileges, similar to investment in the GIZ

2) The right to receive additional tax privileges

3) The right to receive exemptions of import duty; value-added tax (VAT); as well as excise tax on machinery, equipment, raw materials and supplies used in production

4) The right to receive exemptions of export duty; value-added tax (VAT); as well as excise tax on imported materials for use in production or for commercial operation
