Forbes noted that "[Tay Za] has a reputation as a generous boss who instills loyalty in 40,000 full-time staffers. Hundreds of employees have gone overseas to study, including Burma’s first female pilot, and perks quickly accrue to hardworking managers."


On 7 October 2016, the United States Department of the Treasury implemented termination of the Burma Sanctions Program in accordance with the Executive Order issued on the same date by the U.S President Barack Obama, which effectively removed Tay Za, along with other Business Tycoons from OFAC's Specially Designated Nationals list.


Other activities include construction, tourism, infrastructure projects, and mobile phone services. He enters into banking business and sets up Asia Green Development Bank when a license was granted by military junta in 2010 before giving up its power after general election. His bank was sanctioned by US Government soon after it was established. But it was removed from sanction list in 2013.

On 19 May 2010, his son, Pye Phyo Tay Za, lost a legal battle to overturn European Union sanctions against him at the Council of the European Union. In March 2012, the European Court of Justice ruled that Pye Phyo Tay Za be allowed to regain access to his accounts in Europe, as he had testified that he was not connected to his father's business interests.


Tay Za established Htoo Foundation on 5 May 2008, after Cyclone Nargis devastated the Ayeyarwady Region and along with his group of companies provided emergency relief supplies to the survivors in Bogalay Township, spending over US$8 million for the reconstruction of schools, hospitals, monasteries and government offices in the area.


In 2007, following protests against the junta on the streets of many cities in Burma, the United States government imposed sanctions against Tay Za and the companies he controls, including Htoo Trading and Air Bagan.


His major business interests include Htoo Group and Air Bagan, the country's first and only fully privately owned airline. In 2006–2007, Htoo Trading, a division of Htoo Holdings involved in teak log exports, was Burma's top private exporter and fifth largest overall, with gross revenues of $65.1 million. He began his career in the 1980s and started Htoo Group in the early 1990s to extract timber from Burma's forests.
