Setting up a joint stock (JSC) company in Vietnam
Due to the more complicated corporate structure and requirements, a Joint Stock Company, also known as a JSC, is ideal for medium and large enterprises in Vietnam.

Even though the requirements are more demanding, a Joint Stock Company is preferred by the majority of large companies because it allows its owners to issue shares and list them on the Vietnamese stock exchange, and change ownership easily.

Furthermore, this kind of company requires at least three shareholders for its establishment. Furthermore, a Joint Stock Company can be established by any investors, both local and foreign.
