What taxes do you need to be aware of when doing business in Japan?

No one can escape from taxes.  As Japan is one of the high tax countries, you need to carefully prepare your business plans beforehand, so that you will not have unpleasant surprise to receive high tax bills after you make profits in the Japanese market.  Having at least basic knowledge of how your business can be taxed in Japan is prerequisite for any SME planning to expand into the Japanese market. 

The webinar is targeted at EU companies seeking to obtain very basic ideas of Japanese taxation under the various scenarios of doing business, i.e., as a simple exporter, via internet, as an individual entrepreneur resided in Japan, through a branch or a subsidiary established in Japan.

Registration deadline: 21/11/2016
