Advantages of company formation in Vietnam
Opening a shelf company can be a good strategy for investors who wish to start trading immediately. Our team describes the shelf company below.
A shelf or ready-made company is a corporate structure legally incorporated that is, as previously stated, metaphorically "sitting on a shelf."
This means it is not undergoing any activity, nor has assets or liabilities.
A ready-made company in Vietnam has been registered in a standard, generic manner so that a potential buyer can tailor it to the needs of its business.
This means that the investor does not have to go through the whole company incorporation process in Vietnam.
If you choose to work with the right experienced incorporation agents, like ours, it also means the company has a perfect-clean history.
This is possible through our thorough background check of the shelf company, before any final decision for purchase. It will assure that the shelf company is a safe purchase.
Therefore, from "sitting on a shelf" without any previous activity, this company will offer you the quickest way to enter the Vietnam market.
In addition, our Vietnam company formation consultants can provide more information on the shelf companies available for sale in this country.
