Japan offers a stable economy, a reliable tax regime, a sophisticated, internationally oriented infrastructure and a society and culture of openness. The same openness applies to foreign investments. In addition, Japan has great potential to become a regional hub and R&D center in Asia, as exchanges of personnel, goods, and money accelerate within Asia.

KPMG in Japan provides a broad range of one-stop services for foreign companies doing business and investing in Japan. We are very keen to support you in the necessary business phases: from market entry studies to transaction assistance, and from tax structuring to establishing the right controls, and from listing on Japanese stock exchanges to further expanding businesses.

We hope you will find the information in these sections valuable. However, if you have a question or need advice, the best thing you can do is talk to us about your Japan-related commercial or financial objectives.
