Answer: Please find our answers as follows:

  • In this case, you can either setup Wholly Foreign Owned company or Joint Venture Company or Nominee Company.
  • Tax applicable to these forms is the same, no difference.
  • Maximum operation duration of a Wholly Foreign Owned Company and Joint Venture Company is 50 years (renewable). Meanwhile, there is no time limit for operation of a Nominee Company.

– Nominee Company is not recommended since it is not officially recognized by Vietnam Law and it is not safe for your investment.

– Please let us know goods to be imported/exported by the Company in Vietnam and city/province where the company shall be setup. Then, we shall provide you our quotation.
