Why Relocate to Thailand?
If you’ve ever visited Thailand on holiday, then you don’t need much convincing of why you’d want to live here. The very fact that you’re reading this right now tells you that switching up your life to come work in Thailand is an intriguing prospect. You may have your own unique reasons to make the move, but here are a few points in particular that sway many people to take the plunge.
Low Cost of Living in Thailand
The cost of living in Thailand is relatively low when compared to many countries, especially those in Western Europe and North America. The lifestyle that you can afford on US$2000 per month in Bangkok might easily cost you US$6000 or more in San Francisco or New York. Food and housing are two areas in particular where you can save a bundle, especially if you adopt a local lifestyle to some degree.
Thai people have a common saying “Mai pen rai“, which means “Don’t worry about it” or “Hey, no problem.” It’s an attitude that spills over into many areas of life and keeps people from losing their cool. People tend to not get stressed out so easily as in other countries. Thais like to dine out, and you can afford to do so 7 days a week. Dinner with a few beers at an outdoor restaurant with a little live music is a common way to spend an evening. Weekend trips to a white sand beach are an affordable option, accessible with a short domestic flight no matter which Thai city you relocate to. If you like to pamper yourself, massage and spa services are ridiculously cheap in Thailand compared to western countries. So if you’ve ever wondered how your skin would feel after a coffee and yogurt body scrub, now you can find out. And speaking of coffee, you can barely walk ten steps without running into another cafe in Chiang Mai. The cappuccinos, lattes, and original Thai-style iced coffees are not only great quality, but very affordable too.
As a freelancer, you can relocate your business to Iglu. We’ll employ you here in Thailand and you keep working on your existing projects. Invoicing your clients is done through Iglu’s easy to use electronic invoicing system, where you can monitor everything. You will continue to have complete freedom to work with the clients of your choosing, and may also find opportunities for working with new clients through contacts made at Iglu.
Startups / Employers
Employers and Startups wishing to base your team in Thailand can also work with Iglu.
Are you a tech startup? We specialize in relocating teams, offering you an affordable haven to get your business and ideas off the ground. From our Chiang Mai, Bangkok, or Phuket bases we can offer scalable office space in great locations to suit your needs, with everything ready for you to hit the ground running. We can also help you source additional talent when you need it.
Are you an employer? If so your company will be able to save money by relocating some (or all) of your team to Thailand. You might even want to bring your family and join them. Your employee’s gross salary will change into an invoice from Iglu and, of course, they will be working in Thailand.
In essence you’ll be outsourcing jobs, but to your own team. Unlike outsourcing to strangers and getting unknown results, you’ll be outsourcing work to your own familiar relocated staff.
Depending on the tax laws of your country, you may save a lot of money that would otherwise go toward employer contributions, health care, pensions etc . You’re also likely to have a motivated team, as they wake up each morning to this bright tropical sun.
If you already work for a company back home, you can easily relocate to Thailand with our help. We move your contract to Iglu where you will be guaranteed increased purchasing power and only your location and salary payer will change, leaving you to get on with your work and enjoy your new life here in the sun. A contract runs for a year and you will get your salary paid to your Thai account in local currency.
Convincing your current employer to outsource your own job to yourself could be one of the smartest moves you ever make. Depending on your home country’s income tax and social welfare requirements, this might be a much better deal for both of you. In any case, with the low cost of living in Thailand, you’ll no doubt come out ahead.
