It is time to start your business, you have decided a name but what are the rules to register a name correctly? Follow this little guide to know everything about naming a company in Vietnam!
1/ Name check please: start by checking if another company has used the name you chose. Follow this link and insert your name on the top right search field.
2/ Choose a Vietnamese name: this field is mandatory. It is composed of 2 parts. The first is the company type in Vietnamese. In the case of an Limited Liability Company (LLC), it will be “Công Ty Trách Nhiệm Hữu Hạn” + Name of the company. The latter can be in Vietnamese or anything using western alphabet.
* Công Ty Trách Nhiệm Hữu Hạn Peach Cake
* Công Ty Trách Nhiệm Hữu Hạn Bàn Xanh
3/ Choose an English name: this is not mandatory. It you have chosen a name in Vietnamese language for the Vietnamese name of the company, the English name must be a faithful translation of the Vietnamese words. Pursuant to Article 37, Law on Enterprise 2020: Enterprise name shall contain two elements: The type of enterprise and the proper name. In our case, the type of enterprise shall be “limited liability company” or “company limited” as stipulated in clause 2 Article 37 and every enterprise in Vietnam also has this word in their name. There is unfortunately no exception to this rule.
* Peach Cake Company Limited or Peach Cake Limited Liability Company
* Blue Table Company Limited * Blue Table Limited Liability Company
4/ Choose a short form for your company name: you may choose a short form for your company such as Name of the company without any prefix or suffix or even initials if those are still available…
