“Both Tin & Phat Tran have been immensely helpful from the day I reached out to Emerhub- on-boarding calls, details and messages were always responded to almost immediately, with a great bit of reassurance and help.

I’ve been constantly blown away by how efficient the team has been-well informed, helpful and were able to get the process sorted out very quickly (despite my initial call being on a public holiday!). Very grateful for their support.”

Key requirements for setting up a company in Vietnam

No minimum capital requirements
Most industries do not require a minimum capital investment. This means you can adjust your starting capital to suit your plan. Non-monetary assets can count towards capital. Small companies with low overhead can register for as low as USD 3,000
Foreign founders can have 100% ownership

Most business classifications are open to 100% foreign investment and ownership, and do not require special approval or licenses.

You can have up to 50 company founders – similar in nature to shareholders – as either individuals or investors.

Simple corporate structure

A sole director of a company may also count as one of the founders.

Hire as many foreigners as required, provided that they have a university degree and three years of experience.

Accounting Associate, Phu, is well-versed and knowledgable of Vietnmese accounting standards and is very prompt in responding to our queries and needs. I would strongly recommend his services to other businesses.

Group Treasury and Financial Analyst, ONI Global Pte. Ltd.

We used EMERHUB’s services to navigate the procedural requirements in setting up our UK owned business in Vietnam.

The team at EMERHUB was extremely transparent and helpful at every step. Thuy was very clear and concise in her communication from day one, setting clear expectation. Trieu was helpful, prompt and fast, keeping us updated. And Anh from accounts was clear and well informed, helping with all the information we needed with our initial finance and admin requirements.

The team went over and beyond in not only keeping us updated, but also helped to tackle many initial teething problems. Highly recommend, especially to foreign-owned business entities working across language and information barriers.
