SBLaw would like to provide you the legal procedure for formation of joint stock company in Vietnam as follows:
1.Legal frame for Joint-stock company in Vietnam
A joint-stock company is a legal entity established by its founding shareholders based on their subscription for shares in the company.
Under Vietnamese law, this is the only type of company that can issue shares. The charter capital of a joint-stock company is divided into shares and each founding shareholder holds a number of shares that corresponds to the amount of capital the shareholder has contributed to the company.
A joint-stock company is required to have at least three shareholders. There is no limit to the maximum number of shareholders in such companies.
The management structure of a joint-stock company is comprised of the general meeting of shareholders, the board of management, the chairman of the board of management, the general director and a board of supervisors (where the joint stock company has more than 10 individual shareholders or if a corporate shareholder holds more than 50% of the shares of the joint-stock company).
A joint-stock company may either be 100% foreign-owned or may take the form of a joint venture between both foreign and domestic investors.
