Study 1 - The Client: a American company were bidding for a telecommunications project in Japan, as part of the bid process they had to provide the name of the company that would sponsor their staff on Japanese Work Permits/Visas for the duration of the project. They looked into sponsoring their staff directly and then tried to find local companies in Osaka they could partner with, both to no avail. They came across www.contractortaxation.com and through our locally based partner company we organised sponsorship and local Japanese pay-rolling for all of their staff. They then added these details to their bid. They duly won the bid and we now sponsor 12 of their staff on local Japan Permits.
Study 2 – Contractor: a London based recruitment agent, Joseph, had been given a job spec for a contractor to work in Japan. The contractor was a German national and would require both Work Permit sponsorship and local pay-rolling for the duration of his contract in Tokyo.
Joseph, having dealt with Contractor Taxation for a number of international contract assignments contacted us immediately. We were able to provide him with costs and timeframes for Work Permit sponsorship and he was able to get back to his client immediately with a solution. With our local partner we now sponsor several of Joseph’s Japan (and Asian) based contractors on local Work Permits and provide local Japan payroll.
