Certified public accountants and tax accountants are specialists providing accounting and tax support to companies operating in Japan. Both are qualification recognized by law, and only persons with these qualifications may engage in legally stipulated monopoly businesses. Certified public accountants enjoy a monopoly on the performance of audits under the Certified Public Accountant Law, while tax accountants have a monopoly on tax agent services, preparation of tax documentation and tax consultations under the Certified Tax Accountant Law. In addition to their respective monopoly businesses, both provide multi-faceted services such as accounting and business consulting.
