Wise investment, wise planning!

After purchasing your asset and completed the fitting-out, it is time to rent it. These are the things to absolutely avoid when you are renting an apartment as a foreigner in Vietnam.

Use a nominee but for the correct mission

Through the years, we have seen extensive use of nominee to represent landlords. Those individuals, having received all the powers from the landlord, are basically holding your rents and may do whatever they want with it and includes not returning the cash. Although nominees are not a bad thing because it facilitates a lot the whole renting experience. One should be defining clearly the rights and obligations of the nominee party before getting into any absurd transfer of responsibilities. It is risky and unnecessary. 

pay your tax yourself not though another party

The tax law is clear and it is like that in any country: if you receive any sorts of income, you have to be taxed on that income unless you can prove that that income has been elsewhere taxed, either domestically via a tax receipt or internationally via a tax receipt/notice + a valid double taxation agreement (DTA) in force. If via some “weird schemes”, you find yourself unable to prove that you have paid your tax, there will be a liability. That is undeniable. In Vietnam, Foreigners are welcome to pay tax on their income and that is the way.

Choose an established company instead of a random INDIVIDUAL

When you are investing or doing business abroad, it is all about risk management. Would you choose an established company with a background in real estate investment experience or an individual that has no liability and, de facto, a very experience in dealing with tax matters? We are talking here about the legitimacy of the income flow of your investment and about potential substantial liability/penalty for tax fraud. What is the point of investing if you end up paying fine for having chosen the wrong “way” to work out your tax?

What Clients say ?

Why would anyone hire the average accountant in your company who will never have any kind of responsibility in case of malpractice, when you can hire a professional firm with a dedicated team of professionals for a fraction of the price of having the same people in-house. The choice to go with PCA was no brainer. On top of that, they have been immensely helpful and patient since the first day.
Sebastian Grasco
We gave the tax token of our company to PCA and their teams over a year ago and since then, we have been helped and advised like never before. Consultancy sessions are short, straight to the point and truly actionable. As a business owner I cannot recommend PCA more because of their deep market knowledge and insightful recommendations that translate into considerable resources savings.
Tom N. Farley
It is very difficult to work with local partners as most Vietnamese accountants cannot communicate properly/natively in either French or English with our teams. Having the PCA team really helps us to understand the Vietnamese generally accepted accounting principles. In the long run, they helped us achieved substantial savings by making us understand the rules of deductibility.
