Starting a company in Japan
When you start a business in Japan, it is important to choose the appropriate entity, such as a representative office, a branch office, and/or a Japanese subsidiary. Additionally, we provide advice and planning concerning your related Japanese visa.
Bookkeeping and reports
We provide bookkeeping services tailored to the specific needs of our clients.
We are also able to prepare reports in English for foreign head offices, and can communicate directly with your parent company through conference calls, live video, etc.
We provide payroll services for local employees, including the calculation of withholding taxes, social insurance premiums (pension, health care) and labor insurance premiums (accident and unemployment insurances), etc.
We provide corporate compliance services which include the preparation of tax returns for corporate taxes, consumption taxes, fixed assets taxes, and business premises taxes. We can render expert advice on strategic tax-planning in order to minimize our clients’ tax burdens.
Tax Audit and Tax Investigation
In recent years, we have seen an increase in the number of non-Japanese and foreign companies undergoing audits by the Japanese tax authority, often incurring heavy penalties due to the lack of familiarity with proper tax requirements and procedures. We can help you avoid such incidents and ensure you are operating in compliance with the law.
