Different Types of Business Structures in Japan

The types of business structures for company registration in Ireland are as follows:

Joint Stock Company (Kabushiki Kaisha (KK))

This Company is also known as Kabushiki Kaisha (KK). This organization is the preferred type of business chosen by investors for incorporating a company in Japan. Shareholders have the status of limited liability. This would mean that their liability is limited to the amount of share contributions. Companies that want to have corporate governance structures can utilize this form of organization.

Godo Kaisha (GK)

This form of entity was introduced in 2006 through the Japanese Companies Act. Limited liability status for the shareholders is also present for this type of entity. However, there is more flexibility related to management decision-making. When compared to Kabushiki Kaisha the annual compliance costs are lesser for Godo Kaisha. Using this structure has a lot of tax advantages.

Registered Branch Office

If an investor is going for company formation in Japan, then utilizing this structure would be suitable. Usually, foreign companies which are incorporated outside Japan would utilize this structure to carry out operations. If the company wants to regularly conduct business in Japan, then this type of entity can be established. A foreign company would not have to establish a subsidiary in Japan if this type of organization is formed.

Different Types of Taxes in Japan
