Vietnam Company Registration Process

Incorporation of a company in Vietnam is often a lengthy, difficult and costly process due to the numerous bureaucratic requirements companies are required to comply with.

Vietnam company registration is time consuming, though GBS will normally complete the tasks within few weeks.  It is not necessary for our clients to visit Vietnam to complete Vietnam company registration, as our local staff do the groundwork.

Despite the restrictive regulatory environment in Vietnam, our transparent, logical procedures typically ensure that Vietnam company registration is as smooth as it can be for our clients. Vietnam company registration normally evolves as follows:

  • Our client and GBS agree the legal, tax and accounting implications of Vietnam company registration.
  • Our client and GBS agree the company name and the optimum corporate structure, including shareholders and directors.
  • GBS prepares Vietnam company registration documents for our client’s signature and return to us.
  • GBS liaises with the Department of Planning and Investment, the relevant provincial tax department and the Department of Public Security and applies for a business registration certificate and company seal on behalf of our client.
  • GBS registers our client’s company for a tax code.
  • GBS liaises with the Vietnam Registrar of companies and completes Vietnam company registration on your behalf.
  • GBS provides our client with a complete company kit including i) original Certificate of Incorporation ii) a bound copy of a Government approved Memorandum & Articles iii) original share certificates and i v) an original Government receipt as evidence of payment of annual Vietnam company registration and license fees.
