Small and mid-size businesses in Japan of international corporations rarely have the luxury of having extensive in-house financial functions. This can be particularly difficult as they look for in-house accountants who have expertise in IFRS and/or US GAAP with the right Business English proficiency.
VentureINQ maintains a practice dedicated to the specific needs of small and mid-size businesses, including international organizations. We offer a range of services tailored to a company’s specific life cycle point.
At VentureINQ, we pride ourselves on our proven ability to help our clients develop optimal financial and business strategies, anticipate problems and seize opportunities. At the same time, we provide experienced and timely guidance on tax compliance and preparation.
The task of tax compliance places demands on a business’ finance function. This is even more the case when the organization has undergone a major transaction or is adopting a new tax strategy. Effective tax compliance then becomes dependent on human resource issues of hiring, training, and managing full-time accounting employees with the right capabilities.
VentureINQ’s Corporate Tax Outsourcing service allows companies to avoid this problem by relying upon our highly trained staff. Partnering with us during peak tax season allows businesses to retain control of their internal tax function while getting the extra bandwidth they need to meet deadlines, avoid employee burnout and maintain flexibility over the allocation of in-house resources.
Deciding to invest in or expand your company’s presence outside of your country can be overwhelming. VentureINQ is here to offer the expertise necessary to make your decision the right one.

Along with expertise in Japanese tax law and accounting standard, our team offers specialties in feasibility study, Japan entry strategy, business planing, incorporation support, investment banking and transactional advisory services.

We will propose plans customized to the capabilities of their accounting functions, their particular accounting methodologies, and the trajectories of their businesses.

There are times when you need something other than an audit, compilation or review. When specific tests and procedures are required alongside reports on the results, we are here to help.
