Vietnam Legal Register Checklist

Staying up-to-date with the various laws and regulations in Vietnam is a constant challenge for companies and can result in heavy fines if not done correctly. To help you ensure proper compliance, ZICO Law Vietnam now offers the Vietnam Legal Register Checklist.

A systematic and recurring review of applicable legislation is the best way to prevent, or at least mitigate, the risk of unintentional non-compliance with such laws. We in no way wish to scare anyone but we do want to point out a recent published case involving Coca Cola Vietnam, which was fined 350 billion VND due to an insufficient tax filling. It is no wonder that more and more companies in Vietnam are turning to their legal advisors on a regular basis to ensure they are legally compliant to avoid fines and sanctions imposed by relevant Vietnamese authorities for accidental non-compliance.

Our Vietnam Legal Register Checklist is a consolidated and extensive list of applicable Vietnamese laws and regulations that covers most aspects of your business operations in Vietnam and even extends to some other specialized business operations such as the renewable energy business. You will be able to keep track of the main regulations in order to implement a compliance strategy that will help prevent unexpected regulatory concerns.
