Invest Japan Programme


Support Services

If your company is looking to set up a representative, branch, subsidiary office, R&D or manufacturing facility in Japan, we can advise and assist you from the stages of market research, to the point of setting up.

First, please get in touch with us through an enquiry and we can set up an initial consultation to see how we can support your business.

During the consultation, we will go through the JETRO support services listed below, and learn more about your company’s plans for Japan, and talk you through the registration process.

Once you are registered as a JETRO client, we can provide you with our free of charge services.

A consultation at our Invest Japan Business Support Centre (IBSC) in Tokyo is something that we are happy to help arrange. In Japan, we can schedule a meeting with our colleagues who can offer further on-the-ground assistance. During your initial meeting, you may like to discuss labour, tax, or legal issues with our advisors or consult with sector specialists who can offer up to date advice to you.
