It is necessary to prove that the total amount of salary and necessary expenses of employees securing and hiring business sites exceeds 5 million.

Generally, the debt of the company is not immediately invested, but if there are special circumstances such as personal compensation for the borrowing money, it may be regarded as investment of the person himself/herself.

And receive compensation equal to or greater than that of Japanese.

How do I apply?

You can download necessary documents from the Ministry of Justice website.

In application, it is necessary to apply it to the law in terms of its applicability to management / administration work.

Especially at the time of application, the applicant has not participated in the work yet, so from the concrete nature of the project contents, the background of the project, etc., a detailed explanation is required.

There are various conditions in securing business establishments. Basically a form like a virtual office is NOT allowed.

As a judgment of business continuity, management status is an important point. Especially when it is in deficit for the second consecutive term, a very careful investigation will be done. It is a short cut to ask an administrative scrivener, which is one of the tasks to create an accounting table.
