What are your tax obligations when starting your business in Japan?

The number of foreign businesses entering the Japanese market is increasing and similarly the number of foreign businesses who wish to establish a branch or subsidiary in Japan is on the rise as well. When planning to conduct business in Japan by building a base there such as a branch office or subsidiary, no matter what the business customs are, it is also necessary to gain knowledge of the taxation practices. As taxation systems have their own differences depending on the country, Japanese taxation has approaches different from your resident country.  In this seminar, Tokyo-based tax attorney, Mr. Makoto MIURA will give an outline of the Japanese taxation system, the fiscal differences between entering the Japanese market with a subsidiary or with a branch office, and an outline of corporate income tax, one of the main items of taxation.

This webinar is targeted at EU companies seeking to develop their business in Japan and who wish to gain knowledge about the fiscal aspects of their business.
