Starting a business

Starting up your own business is a big decision to make – it carries many benefits but also an equal number of risks. However with careful planning many of the risks can be minimised.

Most people start a business because they have a good business proposition, and the enterprise and commitment to see it through, not because they are experts in the legal and financial aspects of running a business.

In fact, these matters can often seem daunting, and even off-putting, to the budding entrepreneur. The good news is that you do not need to be an expert in these fields to succeed in business. All you need is the support of a team of trained experts. That’s where we fit in. Bring us your business ideas and we’ll help you to evaluate them and put them into practise in a constructive and realistic manner.

We can support  it. The tax authority and the registry office request to file several documents in Japanese, the registry office, etc, we also prepare the documets instead of you.


  • Preparing the necessary documentation for company formation.
  • Payroll service.
  • Consultation on financing and business planning.
  • Company formation.

Many of our clients are located in Tokyo and Yokohama though, we can also coever other areas.
