RSM Vietnam, one of the leading accounting and advisory firms in Vietnam, is proudly celebrating its 20 years in business.

RSM Vietnam and its 20-year journey

In early 21st century, Vietnam’s international economic integration was accelerated, also the market economy was applied.

With the accession to World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2007, Vietnam had a great chance to work with the leading markets and anchored the domestic reforms on strong external commitments. This is important as further trade liberalization and world integration helped Vietnam to narrow down the gap between those operating in the most dynamic exporting sectors and those operating in the rest of the economy. Also, the geographic concentration of foreign direct investment (FDI) was reinforced by this accession.

At that time, in the economic context of boosting investment and development with many changes in regulations and policies, RSM Vietnam, formerly DTL, was founded in July 2001 by the group of the certified public auditors (CPAs) and accredited consultants, who had worked in the field of the auditing and consulting since the very first days of this industry in Vietnam. With these advantages, RSM Vietnam has possessed the valuable manpower resources to confidently provide professional services requiring full understanding of Vietnam business climate and with international quality standards.

Since its establishment in July 2001, the firm has constantly improved and expanded its business as well as enhanced its expertise and service quality to meet the high demands of corporate clients. In 2008, RSM Vietnam opened its second office in Hanoi. In the short time, Hanoi office has made impressive growth not only in the capital but also in the Northern region market, which brought great contributions to the success and development of RSM Vietnam.

RSM Vietnam has become an official member of RSM network since 2012. RMS network is ranked among the top 6 of the global accounting networks with its network firms in 120 countries, in 820 offices worldwide and having more than 48,000 staff including 3,750 Partners around the world.

In 2021, RSM Vietnam implemented its strategic growth plan with another office in Danang with confidence and ambition of tapping into Central region market and contributing to local economic development. Three offices with more than 400 professional specialists nationally have marked RSM Vietnam’s 20-year journey of growth and development of leveraging global network and local experience, strengthen its position as well as committing to accompany and support mid-tier businesses to grow and achieve goals through audit, tax, advisory and outsourcing services.
