You need to determine fiscal year of your company.

Once you have incorporated a company in Japan, your company needs to submit tax filing every year.

If you hire tax accountant to submit tax filing, her fee will be 150,000 yen to 300,000 yen per a year.


If you do not want to pay this amount every year to your tax accountant, you can contact me.

You can learn how to make tax filing paper.

If business year of your company commences on June of each year and end on May, you need to file tax return by end of July.

If you incorporate in June, it is better for you that business year of your company commence in June and end in May.

Notarization of articles of incorporation

Above all, at least you need to specify these matters in articles of incorporation.

In the case of joint stock company ( Kabushiki Gaisha ), you need to notarize articles of incorporation.

And you need to pay fee of around 52,000 yen to notary public. But in the case of Limited Liability Company, such notarization is not necessary and save this around 52,000 yen.

Moreover, when you make articles of incorporation as electromagnetic record ( Denshi teikan = 電子定款 ), you do not have to pay stamp duty of 40,000 yen.

In other words, if you make articles of incorporation as paper, you need to purchase revenue stamp of 40,000 yen and paste it on articles of incorporation.

( I can make articles of incorporation as electromagnetic record on behalf of you. If you try to incorporate LLC by yourself, you will not be able to make electronic articles of incorporation. So, you can not save this 40,000 yen)
