Representative office services

To establish, maintain and operate efficiently a representative office on a long-term perspective, it requires adequate and permanent staffing in all departments such as accounting, human resource, IT, marketing, and administration. However, due to limited financial resources, a representative office may not have enough staff to perform all tasks as it should. Because of that the management of such an office usually has to carry out additional tasks that will not leave them enough time to focus on management tasks. The activities of a representative office are generally evaluated through the results deriving from business promotion activities, marketing, relationships with partners, customers, and the local authorities. Therefore administration is necessary for the proper functionning of a representative office, but those operations usually take too much time for the management of the office, which already caused various problems to the overall performance of many foreign representative offices in Vietnam.

VAAL can help the management of a representative office to overcome problems linked to governance issues so that it will be able to focus more on achieving goals and fulfilling the plans of the representative office by outsourcing tasks for all of the departments such as accounting, payroll, tax, IT, marketing, etc... From such a perspective the results of the activities of the representative offices will improve significantly.
