Flow to incorporate

【1】 Decision about basic matters

You have to initially decide Date of Incorporation, Company Name, Address of Headquaters, Business Purposes, Amount of Capital, Board Members, etc.

↓

【2】 Articles of Incorporation

Every company has to regulate Articles of Incorporation which include the basic matters decided as in [1], total number of all issued shares, the fiscal year of your company and so on. To finalize Articles of Incorporation, it has to be certified by Notary.

Attention: In general, “Certified Stamp” is used in Japan. If you are resident in Japan, you can register a stamp with a city council where you live in. When being asked to stamp “Certified Stamp” for some documents, you use it attaching its stamp certification issued by the city council. If you are non-resident, “Certified Signature” certified by your own country is allowed to use.

↓

【3】 Transfer Money (= Capital) to Japan

The company’s capital has to be transferred to a bank account in Japan. You cannot use a bank account in your own country.

Attention: The point here is a timing to transfer money. It must be AFTER you set up Articles of Incorporation. If you did transfer money before that, you need to move the money again. Bank fee must not be deducted from the amount of the capital.

Outsourcing for payroll calculation

Generally, duties for payroll calculation have to be done in a limited short term, and allowance and deduction are complicated.

So, let us help you to be free from these troublesome and you can devote yourself to the company management.
