Company Setup Process

4 steps to start your new business

Step 1 : Preparation of required documents

When establishing a new company in Vietnam, you must prepare the following documents (*) and information:

  • ID card/Passport of capital contributing members;
  • Company name and form of company expecting to be established;
  • Lease agreement and head office address of company expecting to be established;
  • Business line for the company expecting to be established;
  • The legal representative of the company expecting to be established;
  • Contribution capital to the company, the type of contribution capital;
  • Capital contribution members, capital contribution ratio of members;
  • Proof of financial capacity;
  • Investor documents;

(*) Any foreign documents will need to be notarized, legalized by consular officials, and translated into Vietnamese by competent authorities.

     (From 15 working days)

For large or specific investment projects, businesses need to seek the approval Vietnamese competent authorities prior to starting establishment procedures. It is therefore important to understand whether an investment requires approval and, if so, to prepare the necessary documents and address application processing times.

Here is a summary of project types which may require further special approvals:

  • Construction of Residential housing projects;
  • Airports, aerodromes, air transport businesses, cargo terminals, ports;
  • Petroleum processing;
  • Casinos and businesses involving betting;
  • Infrastructure projects for industrial zones and export-processing zones;

  • Projects that require relocation of inhabitants; and,
  • Projects that require re-purposing some types of forests, or rice crops.

Step 2 : Investment registration certificate application

The first step in the process of establishing a business in Vietnam is to apply for an Investment Registration Certificate (IRC). The resulting IRC allows foreign investors to start establishing their companies in Vietnam. This is mandatory for all foreign investment projects.

     (From 15 – 20 working days) Except for some special cases.

Step 3 : Enterprise registration certificate application

The Enterprise Registration Certificate (ERC) is required for all projects that want to establish a new legal entity in Vietnam. When obtained, the ERC will be accompanied by a number that will double the entity’s tax registration number.

     (From 4 working days)

Step 4 : Initial registration after incorporation

Once the IRC and ERC have been issued, additional steps have to be taken to complete the procedure and start business operations. This includes: 

  • Seal carving;
  • Appoint chief accountant;
  • Drafting decision of appointment of the general director/director;
  • Bank account opening;
  • Business license tax payment;
  • Labor registration;
  • Charter capital contribution; and
  • Public announcement of company establishment
