Vietnam's Investment Registration Certificate (IRC) and Corporate Registration Certificate (ERC) Issuance Process | Explaining the Establishment of Foreign-affiliated Companies

When Japanese companies enter Vietnam, they are naturally treated as foreign-affiliated companies in Vietnam. This depends on whether the investor and the source of the investment are in Vietnam or outside Vietnam.

When a Japanese or a company that has a parent company in Japan moves into Vietnam, it is treated as a foreign-affiliated company because of the above reasons, and the process of establishing a company is very complicated compared to local companies in Vietnam. .. This time, though it is easy, we will introduce the contents that foreign companies will implement when establishing a corporation.

Before the establishment of a foreign-affiliated company in Vietnam
