Deployment of SAP in Vietnam

Hi,

Does anyone have any insight they could share with me on deploying SAP into Vietnam.

My organisation already has a strong regional presence in using SAP in most of Asia, but Vietnam is a new opening that we have to deploy SAP.

The main areas are around Financial Control with these 3 questions below initially, but any further info on unique Vietnam requirements would be much appreciated.

1. What are the legal and corporate account structure requirements for the setup of a company code in SAP.

2. Are their GST/VAT requirements in Vietnam that would have to be met and what do these look like.

3. Are their specific government regulations in place for how AP/AR is managed in SAP.

    Hi Dave,

    Though we dont have a Country template for VN, we can achieve the business process using the standard SAP solution

    its not much complicated in our case, Withholding tax part took little time to match with the required

    Yes, its obvious there are local VAT requirements, Depreciation terms, etc to look in to

    you can actually setup discussion with your local Finance or local auditors to have a better detailed view of local requirements as per your client's business

    Feel free to post any specific questions will try my best to help you :)

    @ Bose,

    Could you help to share how to setup withholding tax/FCT for Vietnam? As there are two rates to be considered during foreign payment, CIT and VAT, and they have different GL posting, how to setup these both together? Wish for your reply. Appreciate

    Not sure whether you took some efforts to find out in Service Marketplace, have a look at the following OSS notes

    • 1684323 - To enable Tax identification Numbers for Vietnam
    • 1899634 - SAP Best Practices Baseline Package Vietnam V1.607
    • 2047407 - Document splitting in FI according to SAP Notes 1497092 and 1670486 for Vietnam and Hungary
