Calibre’s Directors routinely visit clients who are doing business in China. We speak Mandarin and Cantonese and have developed a strong network across various regions.

Vietnam is arguably the number one emerging economy of Asia. It stands where China did 20 years ago – ready to surge ahead, and take savvy investors ahead into new levels of growth. Foreign investors have flocked to Vietnam of late, drawn to low costs, abundance of labour, and increasingly skilled workforce. At Calibre, we can help tap into this growth with an informed tax and business plan.

We have had the opportunity to engage in business and strategic planning in a number of sectors, including Vietnamese education and agribusiness. This has helped us successfully advise foreign investors in setting up and remaining compliant in these industries. Our entity structure set-up services have been tailored to the nuances of Vietnamese regulations.

We understand the nexus of Australian-Vietnamese tax and business regulatory systems, and so have given our clients more than just routine tax or Asian business guidance. We have provided Vietnamese specific advice on compliance, tax, and strategy in order to secure the best possible pathways for success.

The end result is that we boast a team with a unique grasp of what is needed for international investors to be successful in Vietnam, and what is need for Vietnamese investors to be compliant and profitable in Australia.

Our services in Vietnam:

  • Structuring advice for entities in both Australia and Vietnam
  • Legal and tax advice on repatriating funds and protecting IP
  • Statutory direction on getting a business license, an office, or a business partner in Vietnam
  • Realistic scheduling for statutory approvals
  • Licenses for a company stamp, local tax, and bank accounting
