Company Registration procedure in Japan
How a foreign company or an individual sets up business presence depends upon the nature and magnitude of the business, as well as legal, tax and other considerations. Many options exist, ranging from a simple Representative Office to Branch office, or a local Japanese subsidiary company and there are several local types of company formations available. There is also a Japanese version of a limited liability partnership (LLP), is not a corporation, but a partnership format.
A foreign company or entreprenuers can set up a business presence in Japan in one of following 4(four) forms:
·Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
Representative offices are generally established for carrying out market research & liaison activities on behalf of head office. It does not allow to conduct commercial business activities in Japan and no registration is required at the legal affairs bureau nor be subjected to corporate tax under Japanese tax laws, except banking or security business.
The simplest mode for a foreign company to establish a legal entity for commercial business operations in Japan is to set up a branch office. In terms of the range of business activities allowed, there are no basic differences between branch office and domestic corporations. Taxed on branch income only but rate is same as local co. For registration there is no requirement to establish statutory officers / management body, it only needs a local address & a Representative in Japan (must be a resident of Japan). In general, transfer of operational funds between the branch and its head office can be made without restrictions, and is not subject to withholding tax.
A foreign company willing to establish a subsidiary company may choose from the followings:
(a) Joint-stock corporation (Kabushiki-Kaisha) [K.K.]
(b) Limited Liability Company (LLC) (Godo-Kaisha) [G.K.] or similar entity stipulated by Japan’s Companies Act.
There are formats such as unlimited partnerships (Gomei-Kaisha) and limited partnerships (Goshi-Kaisha) under the Companies Act, but they are rarely chosen in practice because equity participants burden unlimited rather than limited liability.
A subsidiary is a separate legal entity from the foreign company, therefore foreign company will bear the liability of an equity participant stipulated by law for all debts and credits generated by the activities of the subsidiary. Minimum requirement for establishing a subsidiary co in Japan is to have a local address (not PO Box) & a local resident director.
