 6) Our Client will arrive in 8 month afer he will become shareholder of Company and open Bank account – so will be there any problems with Company if it will be no Bank account from our Cllient during 8 months after Company will become his prorperty

Answer:

Vietnamese applicable law stipulates duration for capital contribution. In specific, the Investor must contribute capital within 90 days from the establishment date of the Company. In addition, the foreign investor must contribute capital through a direct investment bank account (DICA).
Hence, if the Investor does not open a DICA for 8 months, the Investor will not be able to contribute capital and operate its business.
