The paper addresses an anisotropic formulation of finite strain viscoplasticity. We focus on the formulation of the anisotropic constitutive law for the stress tensor. The essential ingredients of the theory are: 1) the multiplicative setting of inelasticity, 2) the formulation of an anisotropic elastic law based on a mixed-variantly transformed structural tensors. A numerical example is included as well.
