ePCA has your back

This is how we see things. Running a limited liability company is a lot easier than what you may think or may have heard elsewhere. 
We preach simplicity where things are simple. You may have a read before continuing. It will tell a lot about who we are!

Savings resources

Entering a market is difficult and the choice of a professional partner is key. Vietnam is a fragmented market with little or no visibility. Getting the right partner working with you will not only earn precious time but also great amounts of money saved on late filings and so much more. We help you increase productivity by taking care of the non value-added but indispensable administrative tasks.

Business advisory

Unlike other firms, we will not charge you for everything and anything. ePCA model is similar like ‘notaries’, we only charge if titles and deeds are to be made or processed. Need help for a lease contracts or have a question about your business? Just ask, we will not charge you. We believe this is the correct approach to help our Clients. We help build your business because our success is where yours is.

Ethics & Philosophy

We will not bring you somewhere unless we are 100% certain it is safe. We work for our Clients, they are everything to us. Their interest comes first. When two or more options are available to us, we always present all options our Clients and they decide which one to go for taking into account the risks and rewards previously explained. Ethics are with us in everything we do, everything we write and everything we say.

Precious time

Time is money. Competition is ferocious. Sometimes being late one day for a request for proposal can make you lose your bid. That is why we believe in response time. Our team of experts will support you within minutes 24/7 anytime of the year. Chat, email or phone call, we do it all. Not convinced ? Request a video/conference call, an expert will be around to answer all your questions. And yes when we say we help, it is free of any charge.

Need for transparency

It is all about helping. You cannot do this job correctly if you do not have the heart. After talking to us, we hope you will feel it! ePCA was created out of a need of transparency and professionalism in an opaque market. We believe we had to create an offer that could fit the Vietnamese booming landscape offering real rock-solid solutions to our Clients while maintaining a high level professionalism at fair rates. That makes us unique!

The 80% - 20% rule​

Being experienced to provide proper business advisory is key. The solutions we provide are the fruit of years of experience. Pareto’s principle can explain, not only all about economies of scales and learning curves, but it explains also why we can afford charging more affordable rates to our Clients. As we often deal with the same issues, we have built experience that is immediately actionable. Our Clients are the first to benefit from it, no doubt about it.

◙ What is accounting ?

Accounting is the process of recording financial transactions pertaining to a business. The accounting process includes summarizing, analyzing, and reporting these transactions to oversight agencies, regulators, and tax collection entities. The financial statements used in accounting are a concise summary of financial transactions over an accounting period, summarizing a company's operations, financial position, and cash flows.
Accounting is one of the key functions for almost any business. It may be handled by a bookkeeper or an accountant at a small firm, or by sizable finance departments with dozens of employees at larger companies. The reports generated by various streams of accounting, such as cost accounting and managerial accounting, are invaluable in helping management make informed business decisions.
◙ What is a corporate secretary?

The breadth and importance of the role of the Company Secretary has increased markedly over the past five years. It is a unique role as the Company Secretary is often neither part of “line management” nor a member of the Board itself. There are endeavours to move the profession beyond that of being the “administrative servant of the board” to one which encompasses the broader role of “board advisor”.
Within any organization, a Corporate Secretary’s duties include ensuring the integrity of the governance framework, being responsible for the efficient administration of a company, ensuring compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements and implementing decisions made by the Board of Directors. The Corporate Secretary also retains and organizes all of the corporation’s significant documents as well as records; some of these might include its business licenses, sub-licenses, compliance paperwork, stock transfers, proxy statements, shareholder correspondence and contracts.
◙ What is company incorporation ?

Incorporation is the legal process used to form a corporate entity or company. A corporation is the resulting legal entity that separates the firm's assets and income from its owners and investors. Corporations can be created in Vietnam with the "Limited (Ltd.)" in their names. It is the process of legally declaring a corporate entity as separate from its owners. There are several others company types but mostly, investors will go for the LLC while establishing their activities in Vietnam for its simplicity.
Incorporation is the way that a business is formally organized and officially brought into existence. The process of incorporation involves writing up a document known as the articles of incorporation and enumerating the firm's shareholders. In a corporation, the assets and cash flows of the business entity are kept separate from those of the owners and investors, which is called limited liability. The procedures in Vietnam are easy, one must say that the Vietnamese Government has been simplifying the procedures very much for foreigners to invest in Vietnam.

This will answer most of your questions about investing and flourishing your business in Vietnam.

What is a VAT/RED invoice?

In Vietnam, unlike many other countries, invoices must be purchased in advance. Since 2019, it is mandatory for new companies to use electronic invoices (e-invoices).
