Taiwanese Investment in Japan

Broadly speaking, the methods by which Taiwanese companies can invest in Japan can be divided into incorporating a new Japanese company and acquiring an existing Japanese company.

Regardless of the method chosen, the investor must comply with the procedures required under Japanese law, which differs in many respects from Taiwanese law. For example, when incorporating a Japanese company, basically no permits or approvals are required, unlike when a Taiwanese company is incorporated.

The above example shows that a knowledge of Japanese law is essential for Taiwanese companies seeking to invest in Japan. In addition, it is necessary to follow the proper incorporation procedures and registration procedures after incorporation under the Companies Act.
