Through new additions, Analytics will now offer work permit and visa services to existing clients and parties that retain the firm for corporate formation work. Because the fees for these services will be heavily discounted (e.g., fees for work permits could be as low as several hundred dollars), these services will only be provided to parties that already engage or will engage the firm for other related work, such as company formation. In other words, this will not be a stand-alone service offered to “walk in” parties that exclusively seek this sort of assistance.
Unlike many other firms in Thailand, work permit and visa work is not a profit center for the Analytics. Instead, it will be an additional service offered to clients that do not want to engage separate lawyers to obtain work permits and visas for their foreign personnel and are concerned about compliance issues relating to procuring work permits and visas. A fixed fee schedule will apply to visa and work permit work so that clients can avoid unpleasant surprises by knowing in advance what sort of charges it can expect for work permit and visa work.
