Cost of Setting up Foreign Company in Vietnam

The cost of setting up a foreign company in Vietnam varies on the type of company that you set up and the ministries in Vietnam that may or may not be involved. When I say ministry, I refer to the additional licenses that you may require to conduct your business in Vietnam. For example, a full trading company will require an extra trading license from the Ministry of Trade. Whereas a F&B company will require other licenses such as fire safety etc.

Additionally, you may need to bear other miscellaneous costs involved as well. The last thing you want is to embark on your trade and could not continue due to lapses in documentations and licenses. Here is where Vietnam Legals step in to assist your business. We ensure that you are getting the right licenses in a prompt and cost effective manner. Importantly, we ensure that you are ready to start your growth here in Vietnam safely and productively.
