VIETNAM Investment Workshop: Setting up a Company, Tax Planning and Financial Management for Foreign Investors

*VIETNAM Investment Workshop: Setting up a Company, Tax Planning and Financial Management for Foreign Investors. Jakarta Manhattan Hotel, Thursday 3rd June 2010*

Vietnam is a magnet for foreign direct investment. The success of doing business in Vietnam is greatly facilitated by the ability to put through effective corporate structure and financial management system to deal with foreign investment laws, taxation, accounting and foreign exchange issues in Vietnam.

What sectors are open to foreign investors? How has Vietnam’s WTO commitment liberalized the investment landscape? And what are the strategies for managing partnership and strategic alliance with Vietnamese partners?

The investment registration process and tax management in Vietnam is decentralized, with the municipal and provincial authorities having significant discretions on how businesses are established and managed from a tax and accounting angle. Many business sectors are subject to local equity and licensing conditions, and as such having a good local partner, experienced staff and localized professional support would greatly assist in the initial market entry stage.

As an emerging economy, the regulatory landscape in Vietnam is dynamic, characterized by frequent changes in laws and regulations. Very often, the head office corporate team is unsure whether the myriads of regulations in Vietnam are fully complied with, and is also troubled by the quality of financial and management reporting by their Vietnamese accountants.
