Internet, especially google search engine, is often used by many people when looking for information about companies and organizations because information of almost all businesses is published on the Internet.

If you type the keyword in the Google search bar, you will see many websites that give you information about businesses and economic organizations from small to large across Vietnam. However, for the highest accuracy, you should choose websites that are under the control of the government or websites of reputable businesses, specializing in providing business information. Following are some websites you should consult:


This is an official website under the management of the Ministry of Planning and Investment. To get information of businesses on this portal, you only need to enter one of the following: business name, business code or name of the representative.

After pressing the search button, the screen will display basic and general information of the business that is of your concern. However, if you want to get more details about that business in terms of history of development and operation, you need to pay to log in and use, and this step is considered quite complicated and cumbersome.


This is the official website of the General Department of Taxation. Here, people can find out the exact tax code of the business, know if the business is still operating or not, and see some other basic information about that business such as the name of the legal representative, date of establishment, charter capital, etc.

In addition, this website of the General Department of Taxation also provides methodical and general information about tax and finance, which is considered a top area of interest when learning about a business.

On top of the above-mentioned, normal searching by typing the correct name and address of the business on the Internet is also a way to find out the most basic information of that business. If you visit the website of that business (if any) or the website of the business associations where the business is a member, chances are high that you can gather fairly reliable information.
