This is a true story that we helped an American (who has never stepped in Vietnam due to COVID-19) set up a factory in Vietnam successfully and cheaply. 90% satisfied with our services. Let’s see how:

He wants to manufacture Essential Oil Delivery System for in-shower use in Vietnam and export back the US market (as image)

Essential Oil Delivery System for in-shower use

He had outsourced many companies to manufacture each part of the product then connect them into a unique product, as the demand growing, this way of business does not bring high productivity and deadline. That propelled him to think about opening his own factory in Vietnam: import material, end-to-end manufacturing, 100% export to the US.

As the setup cost in Vietnam is quite low, his own factory will also low down the unit price.

And the most valuable thing we brought to him (by our consulting) is how to get tax incentives from the Vietnam government.

He wanted to start small, the starting investent is about $300,000, then expanding slowly.

As an investor, He must know well about the efficient investment in Vietnam, He is in the US with limited information about Vietnam, a lot of questions raised into his head while the need for his factory was very urgent:

  • What is the process of opening a factory in Vietnam?
  • Is there any tax incentives?
  • Even know well about the process of opening a factory, how to take it in action while he cannot go to Vietnam due to COVID-19?

He searched Google and found us (vnclearview.com), fortunately, we are a right agent that can answer 3 questions above and brought his need come true.

– He asked us:

What is the process of opening a factory in Vietnam? I am from the US, my product is about beauty product

– We replied:

To manufacture your products in Vietnam, you must own a legal entity (in your case, best suited is a limited liability company or LLC) with the purposes registered to the authorities are manufacturing beauty products and exporting to the US.

To setup this LLC, you have 2 choices:

  1. You’ d lease a ready built factory, after that you’ll own a leasing contract, then apply for an investment certificate (click Here).
  2. You’d lease a land for 50 years then build your own factory on that. You must own a leasing contract of land 1st, then apply for an investment certificate and construction permit.

If you care about Set up cost estimate, let’s give us more detail about types of products, location in Vietnam. Or if you already have fixed budget, we can consult you to optimize that for you to setup in Vietnam appropriately.

– He replied:

I want to lease a ready built factory near Hanoi, thinking Here (the website providing warehouse and factory for lease), I want to do this as quickly and cheaply as possible… 

– We replied:

I checked your link and called them,
The price they said is: $4.5/m2/month (excluding 10% VAT) in Haiduong 55 Km away from Hanoi.
But currently available some much cheaper factories from our partners we helped, about 25 km from Hanoi, just 3 to $3.5 (excluding VAT):
Newly built-Ready infra: 600KVA electricity, water, sewage treatment plant, road, public light-Inside precedential industrial zones-Japanese standard-30 minutes to Hanoi by highway, 24/24 secuirity.

Factory we offered to the customer


Actually, He had researched about warehouse market in Vietnam for days, but never thought such low price as we recommended for him ($3 to $3.5 per square meter per month) because we are working directly with the owners of warehouses while the price market with the same standard is $4.5 to $6). This is as a lightning to him, he really cared about about our recommendation.

I offered him 3 warehouse options, exchanging tens of emails , He asked his friends in Vietnam to visit the warehouses, after all He chose the one above and wanted to hasten the process of making warehouse leasing contract, this is a basis to apply for the investment certificate (the important paper to set up LLC).

We helped him modifying, editing, adding clauses or provisions of the leasing contract in a way that could secure him before court, in case of the owner’s contractual violations.

Next is the process of setting up a limited liability company (LLC), REMOTELY…

Here is how He can set up a company in Vietnam remotely as i sent emails to him:
