Starting a Business in Japan

JETAA Tokyo logo
Interested in forming your own company in Japan? Well, here is an informative post for you from Jonathan Michaels as he describes the process he took to establish a business in Japan. He details:

“…having a sole-proprietor business up and running and talk about incorporating and the tax reasons therefore. By the way, by “sole-proprietor business,” I mean just providing a product on your own without forming a company. Even without forming a company, you can do business under a name separate from your own (called a 屋号 yagō in Japanese.”
