Company Registration in Vietnam

Company Registration Vietnam

To set up a company in Vietnam, foreign investors can either form a Limited-Liability Company (LLC) or a Joint-Stock Company (JSC). Both types of legal entities allow foreign investors to either have 100% foreign ownership as a Wholly Foreign Invested Company or local-foreign ownership as a Joint Venture Company. With Cekindo, foreign investors will not have to travel to Vietnam to set up the business.

Which option is right for your business?

Foreign businesses may consider setting up a representative office or a branch in Vietnam.
