Issues Surrounding Companies

Complexity of Accounting Standards and Settling Accounts Earlier

In recent years, JP GAAP has changed rapidly and is becoming more complicated. Japanese standards are also affected by the convergence to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Moreover, entities are required to disclose financial results accurately and in a timely manner, which has continued to increase the burden placed on businesses for closing procedures.

CPAs, with extensive expertise and practical experience, provide support in interpreting and implementing the latest accounting standards!

Understanding of IFRS and Gathering Information

Countries all over the world have adopted or are moving towards the adoption of IFRS, and entities in Japan need to be aware of the possible future adoption of IFRS. To respond to the rapidly changing J-GAAP as well as be prepared for the possible future adoption of IFRS, it is necessary for businesses to understand both IFRSs and the latest updates in their original language.

CPAs with experience working with IFRS and providing IFRS support, can provide the appropriate advice for your business!

Strengthening the Independence of Audit Firm

Accounting standards are becoming more complicated and while the burden on entities increases, audit firms are in an environment where they have difficulty providing specific solutions to entities while still maintaining their independence.

We provide answers individually tailored to your specific needs, and can assist in providing advice and solutions where your audit firm cannot.

Implementation and Operation of Accounting Policy & Procedures Manual (APPM)

An APPM is necessary for the efficient management of a corporate group to improve the infrastructure of the accounting system and unify work processes across entities.

We provide support to create and implement the APPM for standardization of accounting infrastructure and work procedures across a corporate group.

((Please refer to the seminar handout “Effective Implementation and Operation of Group Accounting Policy Manuals”)
