Setting up a business in Japan

Foreign companies establishing a business entity in Japan can choose from three basic types of operations: 1) Kabushiki Kaisha (commonly abbreviated K.K., The term is often translated as “stock company”, “joint-stock company” or “stock corporation”.), 2) A branch office (of foreign office) and 3) a Representative office.

As the procedures for setting up a company or a branch in Japan are complicated and must be conducted in Japanese, most people enlist the services of a professional, such as an attorney-at-law, judicial scrivener, or administrative scrivener to handle establishment procedures which typically take three months to complete.
