Business structures in Japan – Branch office

Branch office

A branch office does not have a separate legal corporate status so claims and liabilities arising in the branch can be applied to the main company of which it is part.
It could open its own bank accounts or lease property in its own name but it will need to negotiate with a bank or landlord.

The registration details are below.
The address of the branch office, the representative in Japan, the date of branch office establishment, the accounting method used for balance sheets and details of the home company.
