Doing business in Myanmar

Hi Julien and all,

I have the same question about setting up a company in Myanmar.  I'm still in Vietnam and looking for a way to apply online. Is it possible in Myanmar.

I'm looking at DICA's link. … -companies

However, all the hyperlinks to the Forms are broken :(

Could you please share any real experience dealing with this. Much appreciation!

Hi Anna!

Most of time, the websites of Myanmar governance bodies won't be working. *especially, when you need it the most ;) . Kindly reference the link for the registration process; … er_eng.pdf and to your question, "no there's no way you can register online because Stamp Duty and stuffs cannot be done via online".

Hope this helps.

The new Companies Law was enacted few days ago (6 dec 2017).
