At Bradford Jacobs, we make business expansion easy, thanks to our Professional Employer Organisation (PEO) and Employer of Record (EOR) platforms. We navigate the administration of the Japanese payroll system for you. As part of our service, we make the returns and associated payments for income tax and social security contributions directly from our payroll system to the local tax authorities.
From the first steps of setting up the operation, our payroll specialists guide you through the complex layers of Japanese taxation laws. These involve registering for withholding tax, social insurance, labor insurance, plus federal, local, corporate, enterprise and inhabitants’ taxes.
This involves at least 30 tax payments a year, nationally and at prefecture and municipal levels for all these categories, compared with an average of 10 for the USA and member nations of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.
Bradford Jacobs will process every requirement of the relevant authorities – including the National Tax Agency (Kokuzei-cho, NTA) and the relevant social insurance systems (Shakai Hoken), covering health insurance, employee pensions, unemployment insurance and accident compensation.
Our teams step in from day one and you enjoy the benefits. We supply customised payroll to meet the specific requirements of complying with Japanese regulations.
