My name is Yasuhiro Namekata, a certified public tax accountant and I am the owner of Wave Tax Accounting Office. YOUR TAX RETURN JAPAN is operated by Wave Tax Accounting Office.
I established my tax accounting office this August in Osaka. I would like to focus on offering tax and accounting services for foreign individuals and companies whose founders are foreign people. There are two reasons why I offer the service to foreign people. First, I want them to enjoy living in Japan without complicated tax and accounting problems, and secondly, I want them to know Japanese tax system and law for their better lives in Japan.
Before I started my tax accounting office, I had worked in Osaka Regional Tax Bureau, Regional Tax Offices and National Tax Agency Japan as a government employee for 23 years in total. While working for National Tax Agency Japan, I was dispatched to Australia for 2 years. I also experienced being a foreigner myself in Australia and I was very glad that Australian people were very kind to me.
Since I can offer tax and accounting services in English, you can ask your concern about tax, accounting and your business. I can also explain Japanese business customs and lifestyles.
If you are an employee in a Japanese company and want to know how to file your tax return, I can hold a seminar about how to file a tax return for you and your co-workers.
One of my goals is “Better life in Japan for foreign people”.
I will be glad to help your tax and accounting concerns and problems.
