Incentive Programs

To facilitate investment in Japan, the government offers appealing incentives, as well as operating single contact points in relevant ministries and agencies for inquires/support regarding doing business in Japan. Local governments also offer various incentives and support exclusively for foreign-affiliated companies and foreign companies that are planning to open an office in their region.

The followings are incentives relevant to overseas/foreign-affiliated companies.

I. National incentives

B. Incentives for enterprises that foreign-affiliated companies can also use

1. Tax incentives for strengthening local business facilities

For cases which satisfy the outlined requirements, "tax incentives for strengthening local business facilities" are available for companies opening or expanding headquarters functions* such as branch offices and research laboratories in local areas (with the exception of a few areas) outside of the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, through foreign direct investment, or foreign-affiliated companies relocating their headquarters function from the 23 wards of Tokyo to regions other than the Tokyo Metropolitan Area.
* Headquarters functions indicate an "office," "laboratory" or “training institute."

Prerequisites for qualifying for tax breaks
  1. Areas in which tax incentives area available for the establishment, expansion or relocation of headquarters are designated as those areas within each prefecture (Regional Revitalization Areas) where the establishment, expansion or relocation of headquarters are being promoted, and do not include non-target regions* for this support.
    * Non-target regions for support: in principle, large central urban areas in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, Chubu and Kansai regions. However, since the tax reform of fiscal year 2018, central areas of the Chubu and Kansai regions have become eligible for support in the case of relocating headquarters functions from the 23 wards of Tokyo.
  2. Before beginning construction for the opening, expanding or relocating of the headquarters, companies must first create a plan for establishing, expanding or relocating the headquarters (a Regional Vitality Improvement Plan for Specific Business Facilities) and then obtain certification from the relevant prefecture.
Please be sure to contact the prefecture where your company is considering the opening, expansion or relocation since a variety of requirements must be met in order to obtain certification from the prefecture.
