It normally takes 2 to 3 months to set up a new company in Vietnam. This process comprises two main stages: applying for investment registration certificate (IRC) and Business registration certificate (BRC). The most time-consuming procedure lies within the application for IRC.

There are two ways that can help you reduce the waiting time for doing business in Vietnam. In particular, you can invest in an existing Vietnam company or establish a local company through your trusted nominee. Through this way, you don’t have to register for IRC or BRC. Otherwise, you can consider setting up a local branch or a representative office, depending upon your business’s needs.

Your company in Vietnam can be incorporated under two most common structures: (i) Limited Liability Company (LLC), or (ii) Joint Stock Company (JSC). An LLC is renowned for its simple structure, and is more suitable for small businesses. In contrast, if your business plan is rather large, and you intend to go for a public offering, a JSC would be your ideal fit.

Except for some highly regulated industries like finance, insurance, real estate, etc. There is no minimum capital requirement for company establishment in Vietnam.
