Types of shelf companies in Japan

In most cases, the following types of companies are opened in this jurisdiction:

  • joint-stock company (kabushiki-kaisha);
  • limited liability company (godo-kaysha);
  • branch of the parent foreign company.

Due to the limited liability of shareholders, the merits of funding and the high level of public confidence, the most common form is considered to be a joint-stock company. However, due to the fact that the minimum capital at the start should be from 100 thousand dollars, opening such a company is beneficial only for big business.

For medium-sized companies, a better solution would be to open a limited liability company, since the capital in this case is from 30 thousand dollars. It is most profitable for small companies to start a business in the form of a branch of another company, since it is possible at the start to have no capital at all.

Kabushiki-kaisha can be registered in 2 ways:

  • incorporation of a company, when the shares are in the possession of the founders;
  • incorporation of a company, when shares are distributed through sales in order to attract investors.

Taxation in Japan

A firm that is resident in Japan pays taxes in the country on income received in any country. A foreign enterprise pays only tax on income received directly in Japan. If a foreign firm has a permanent establishment in the jurisdiction, then all income that relates to the company is also subject to taxation.

The taxable income is the difference between profits and deductible expenses for the reporting period. Often, the transfer of individual assets between all subsidiaries is not considered a deductible expense.

  1. The standard tax rate is 23.2% and applies to firms with registered capital of 100 million yen or more.
  2. The corporate tax for a branch is similar to the commissions of a subsidiary. A consumption tax (similar to VAT) is paid on the sale of goods and services, the sale and lease of certain assets, imports and some of the digital services provided by foreign entrepreneurs in the country.
  3. Now the combined and local rate is 10% (in some cases – 8%), and is also equal to zero for exports and in a number of other cases.
