SETTING UP REP OFFICE IN VIETNAM

Setup rep office in Vietnam: Some international companies choose to set up a representative office to create a presence in the market without the expense of setting up a fully-fledged operation in the country.

Advantages of a Vietnam Representative Office

2. A representative office is not liable to corporate tax in Vietnam, although its staff is liable to personal income tax.

3. There are no geographical restrictions on where a representative office can be established in Vietnam. A foreign company can open an unlimited number of representative offices in Vietnam.

The company is required to submit a copy of its business registration certificate from its home country.
