How can a company secure credits in doing a business in Japan? 

Rules upon international trade transactions are governed by Incoterms of the International Chamber of Commerce. On the other hand, domestic business and commercial transactions in Japan are governed by Japanese laws and statutes. In making business transactions, management of credits and liabilities are one of the most essential factors needed to successfully operate a business. No matter how successful a company is in sales performance; if it fails to manage its credits & liabilities properly, the business results can end up with a poor statement of accounts or even weaken the sustainability of the business. In order to hedge these potential risks, a company needs to be knowledgeable about and utilize the relevant laws and statutes, and prepare contracts to properly manage potential risks and make them as beneficial as possible.

This webinar is targeted at EU companies seeking to launch and successfully operate a business in Japan.
