How long does it take to set up a company?

After authentication of the Articles of Incorporation and investment performance, you can submit the application (Establishment Registration) to the Legal Affairs Bureau.

After submission, the examination at the Legal Affairs Bureau will generally end a week or two weeks later.

When the application process is completed, a Registration Certificate for the company will be issued. Anyone can ask for the certificate, and the certificate that proves the existence of a company in Japan ensures the reliability of the transaction.

When you start a business with a company, you can investigate the company by inspecting the certificate at the Legal Affairs Bureau.
