Starting a company in Vietnam

Le-Vaganova Varvara, founder, and director of LEADERSHIP TSC:

In 2013, when I first arrived in Vietnam and needed the service to start the company, I had to contact a Vietnamese woman who did all the paperwork for me. On reflection, it's scary to remember how much money, effort, and nerves I spent on this. I couldnt do anything with my company even after paying the required amount. I didnt have access to the bank account and the stamp. Overall, less money and effort had to be spent to bring everything in line. I learned my lesson and understood if I want to navigate in local business, I have to sort out an object. Modesty aside, I believe I've succeeded in that for the last 5 years. I speak Vietnamese, attentively monitor changes in legislation and track the main trends of the economic, political, and social life of Vietnam.

Vietnamese law about foreign investment and business creation allows foreign citizens or entities to take part in a Vietnamese company as a founder. The process of starting is the same for all types of companies - the first step is to establish the company with a Vietnamese founder, and the second step is to transfer his rights, obligation, and share capital to foreign investors. Prices and terms depend on the number of shares in the authorized capital of foreigners.
