Services for supporting business expansions in Japan

Many foreign companies and foreigners are considering either launching or expanding their businesses in Japan.


It’s very difficult to succeed in business when you are not sure whether the business strategies you chose are the best for your particular needs and circumstances. This is true, even if you go to great expense in terms of time and money to research the Japanese legal system from the start, in trying to find the best corporate structure for you.


GVA has a wealth of experience in supporting companies in incorporating their businesses. This is because GVA has extensively studied and has a wide knowledge about legal regulations concerning launching businesses in and outside Japan.
