Kudun and Partners is pleased to share the successful delivery of a pro bono project undertaken to assist Yunus Thailand, a non-profit organisation devoted to achieving a World of 3 Zeros – Zero Net-Carbon Emission, Zero Poverty, and Zero Unemployment. The pro bono project centered around providing essential legal support on inquiries related to Thailand’s social enterprise law. Our team delved into three key areas:

    1. Comprehensive legal analysis on Thailand’s social enterprise law and and recommendations to relevant government counterparts.
    1. Recommendations on legal structures best suited for registration as a social enterprise in Thailand.
    1. Tax Guidance on entry into tax schemes, particularly Value Added Tax, addressing the unique needs of social enterprises with annual revenues exceeding THB 1.8 million.

Chai Lertvittayachaikul and Emi Rowse, partners at Kudun and Partners, led the initiative with support from Peerapong Pornpipatkul, Senior Associate, and associates Salinthip Anpattanakul and Thanpitcha Rojanawiboonchai.
