BOI Secretary General Statement on COVID-19: We are here to help

Dear Investors and Dear Friends,

The spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) around the world over the past three months has affected many people and economic activities across the globe. During this critical period, the Office of the Board of Investment (BOI) remains as committed as ever to serve the needs of investors, while complying with the rules established under the Emergency Decree and the recommended social distancing.

In this respect, the BOI has taken the following measures to facilitate companies:

- In accordance with the announcement by the Ministry of Finance to postpone corporate income tax submission for the 2019 accounting year (Por.Ngor.Dor.50) to 31 August 2020, the BOI has extended the application deadline for corporate income tax exemption privileges to 31 July 2020, or not less than

30 days before the corporate income tax filing date.

- To ensure continued support to investors, we have launched an online document submission service

(e-submission) since March 30, 2020 apart from our existing e-services (such as e-investment for applications, e-tax for corporate income tax exemption authorization, and e-land for land ownership approval). Please visit our website for e-submission ( This new service, in line with the government policies to encourage people to work from home, ensures that companies can still receive services from us as usual.

- Both the Head Office of the BOI, at 555 Vibhavadi-Rangsit Road, and the One Start One Stop Investment Center (OSOS), located on the 18th Floor, Chamchuri Square Building, Rama IV Road, stay open during normal office hours, although with a reduced personnel. Whether they are at the office or working from home, all BOI executives and staff stay fully engaged.

- Also, should you have any query, the BOI is now offering online meeting services. Please kindly advise via email ( or telephone (Tel. no. +66 2553 8111 ext.1) if you wish to schedule an online meeting with us.

While the BOI will provide you with important updates when required, I also wish to recommend you visit the following Government websites to keep up-to-date with the COVID-19 situation in Thailand both in terms of the sanitary situation and of the latest measures taken under the Emergency Decree:

Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health
