Market Information

You would like to deepen your insight on the Japanese market? A lot of the recent and highly valuable data is only available in Japanese or hard to find online. We can get customized, sector-specific market information for you, based on your company's specific needs.

Company Reports

Getting insight on company reports about current or potential business partners is of strategic significance as they often contain extensive information. We recommend gathering an appropriate amount of information before signing a contract, or even when just getting to know a potential business partner.

We can obtain economic information of companies or potential business partners from extracts of the commercial register or credit reports for you. The information is generally compiled in Japanese but can be arranged in English upon prior agreement.

Laws and Taxes

In a country whose legal system may be unfamiliar to you the AHK Japan is a valuable source of information. We provide briefings on labour, tax and other relevant legislation. We can also refer you to external tax and legal experts, who will provide you with extensive advice in English or German on complex matters like company establishment or contract reviews.
