We provide extensive payroll and social insurance support services for foreign and foreign-affiliated companies. We understand well the situation of those who operate their companies in Japan, and will offer the best appropriate service to them through either consulting or outsourcing.
HR and labor consulting/Proxy services for social insurance and labor insurance procedures
If managers or employees carry out such as social insurance and labor insurance administrative procedures, the current situation is that more time is required due to Japan’s unfamiliar paperwork. Additionally, having staff members handle general personnel affairs may cause companies to incur additional costs for hiring and training personnel. Retirement of staff in-charge of HR affairs may also cause disruptions in company operations. At our office, a professional social insurance consultant from our team will prepare documents and social insurance and labor insurance procedures.
Payroll calculation, time management, payslip preparation outsourcing
While payroll calculation is a task that can be done in a short period of time, the calculation of salary due and the necessary deductions is complicated. In addition, labor and social insurance laws and regulations such as the Labor Standards Act and the Act on the Collection, etc. of Insurance Premiums of Labor Insurance, and related laws and regulations such as the Income Tax Law are frequently revised, which places a considerable burden on companies to continuously comply. With proper understanding of Japan’s social insurance system, it is actually possible to reduce the insurance premiums due. With the outsourcing services our company offers, companies in Japan can instead focus on the improvement of the efficiency of their business operations rather than social insurance’s complicated affairs.
Proxy services for grant and subsidy application
For those who run companies in Japan, the grants and subsidies offered are repayment-free and interest-free, which are beneficial to the companies. Every year, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare awards several companies with funding, and there are many that can be used regardless of the type of business. However, this is generally not publicized and not many companies apply. It is necessary for the company to maintain a certain state, and many require submission and certification of business plans, etc.; there are times where it is necessary to check the schedule in advance, and times where it the grant is difficult to obtain. Our office provides consistent support from the introduction of the system to application procedures. In conducting company management and business development in Japan, if there is a system that can be easily introduced to your company, our team will provide support with the application. First of all, we will check what subsidies and grants your company is qualified to apply for or receive.
