Chart : creation and dissolution of companies, per quarter, until Q4 2008

Source Department of Business Development.

Update of the chart per quarter, for creation and dissolution of companies (= LTD companies + LTD partnerships + Ordinary Partnerships).


Creations went down 8,8 % in Q4 compared to Q4 2007. Q3 was strong, so a pause might be natural. Or, we see the first fallouts of the crisis.

By looking at the figures per month (year on year), I think it’s right : we had -7 % in october, – 25 % in november and -29 % in december.

As for dissolutions, do not forget that it’s a lagging indicator (it takes lot of time to close a company, figures are continuously revised).

    It would be even more instructive to look at the total registered capital for companies created and dissolved. How many noodle stands or beer bars would it take to replace the economic utility of one shuttered factory for example?

    Closing a company can be a complete nightmare in TH,…so am sure there are millions of others just paying the auditor fees on buggered companies.

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
