Launch your new business in a convenient, compliant, and cost-effective manner

Why Vietnam?


Vietnam is a fast moving and resilient market, with positive year-over-year growth during the COVID-19 pandemic1. The GDP growth in 2022 is forecast at 7.5%2.


For most non-conditional business lines, there are no mandatory minimums for registered capital. This results in relatively low risk to establish a legitimate and tax paying business. 


Vietnam has signed onto many free trade agreements, which has driven investment by enrolling multiple sectors in international standards based commerce, reducing risk, and increasing transparency3.


With high urban immunization rates and multiple indexes confirming an economic rebound in 2022, Vietnam is ahead of the curve regionally in terms of market entry opportunities. However, there are still challenges in navigating a post-COVID landscape.

The Current Market Entry Landscape

Investment and Enterprise laws and processes can be unclear, inconsistent, and difficult to understand, as there is an abundance of conflicting “solutions” for market entry.

Legal and accounting service providers do not have operations fluency – they can register your business as you describe it, but lack the competency to foresee changes in your operations that may conflict with your licenses.

Many service providers offer little price or service transparency or documentation, making it difficult to understand or explain what has been done, which creates a threat to compliance and audit.

Aside from business registration, there are other operational needs to navigate, including setting up accounting, banking, tax, invoices, and visas/work permits.  

Large firms are prohibitively expensive, often partnering with  banks and investors rather than small business owners.

Smaller local firms may pose communication issues while focusing on market entry processing, not market entry strategy.
