TCG Tokyo Consulting Group Japan on Accounting Services - Financial Audit

Prepare for a Financial Audit in Japan with the Help of Tokyo Consulting Group


Engaging in a financial audit in Japan is essential to the financial health of both local firms and foreign-owned businesses operating in the country. Japanese accounting standards differ from those set by IFRS and USGAAP. Because of these differences in standards and regulations, foreign companies often encounter difficulties in dealing with financial audit standards in the country.


Tokyo Consulting Group is comprised of accounting experts - Japanese Certified Public Accountants (JPCPA) and United States Certified Public Accountants (USCPA) - who are experienced in performing financial audits for foreign companies. Furthermore, we are affiliated with GGI, an accounting firm based in Switzerland since 1995.


This partnership provides us with the necessary resources and knowledge of IFRS and other international audit standards. In addition, our rates are flexible, depending on transaction amounts and scale of the company. Hence, our fees are lower than those of other accounting firms for audit operations and other services necessary when opening a business in Japan.


Our Audit strategy


Statutory Audits


Our statutory audit services in Japan are performed in accordance with the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, the Companies Act, and the Limited Partnership Act for Investment. Our professionals can fulfill the role of a statutory auditor in Japan for companies whose headquarters are based in other countries.


In addition to our experience, our strength also lies in the proximity we nurture with our customers. Large audit firms tend not to visit their clients directly, especially if they are small companies. As a result, poor judgments and uninformed decisions are often taken, creating issues later on. Tokyo Consulting Group employees pay frequent visits to their customers, thus ensuring the full understanding of our clients. Coupled with our experience, this proximity is what allows us to be highly successful in providing our customers with the appropriate audit services and other functions to support your organization's statutory auditor in Japan.


Voluntary Audits


It is crucial for businesses - especially newly formed companies - to ensure that their financial records are up-to-date and accurate. The correctness of financial statements can be measured by undergoing a voluntary audit in Japan, which Tokyo Consulting Group can perform on-demand.


When offering our voluntary audit services, we strive to provide a comprehensive service to our customers. Our experience and understanding of newly-established businesses are our main assets, allowing us to deliver rigorous and thorough reports.

Financial audits using IFRS and U.S. GAAP

Tokyo Consulting Group generates financial statements based on International Standards on Auditing - GAAP (Generally Accepted Auditing Standards), USGAAP (United States Generally Accepted Auditing Standards), and IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards). Our employees possess a high level of expertise in Financial Advisory, and excel at reporting financial statements to provide formal records of financial activities of businesses, individuals, or other entities.


In addition, our experience in partnering with global accounting companies provides us with enough experience to independently excel at offering services to international customers in Japan. This includes generating financial statements and giving advice and guidance with regard to present and future operations to global companies. Tokyo Consulting Group provides its customers with a thorough financial audit in Japan, on which they can rely. As a result of our high standards of professionalism and expertise, users of financial statements such as stockholders or shareholders can increase their confidence and trust in our customers.


As more companies' subsidiaries are established over the world, financial reports to corporate parents in different countries become increasingly complex. Financial reports may be requested from us in English or in Japanese, as our bilingual staff is able to report in either language. Tokyo Consulting Group, as one of the truly global accounting firms, promises to conduct your firm's financial audit in Japan with international quality standards, and pledges to bring knowledge and expertise to its customers, regardless of company size.

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba Adds To The Fun Factor With New Family Activities

‘Famolympics’, treasure hunts and cooking classes amongst parent-child activities now available at Jordan’s friendly-family resort


Jordan’s leading family resort, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba, has enhanced its family offering further by creating several new activities for parents and children to enjoy together, including ‘Famolympics’, treasure hunts and private cooking classes with the resort’s chefs.


The resort’s 150-metre stretch of private beach is the location for the ‘Famolympics’, which tests a family’s teamwork, agility and coordination at five stations involving mind games, relays, swimming and sandcastle-making.  Treasure hunts make the most of the resort’s Red Sea beachfront location and see teams of parents and children work together to find hidden treasures. Both activities are available at the weekend.


For families who enjoy cooking together, the resort’s first-class kitchen is the perfect place to learn five-star culinary techniques. Supervised by professional chefs, the private midweek cooking classes give families hands-on cooking experience as they create one of three local Jordanian dishes: Maqloobah, Sayadieh and Mansaf, the country’s national dish.


“Family holidays are perfect for enjoying quality bonding time, while creating memories together to take back home,” says General Manager Beat Peter. “When introducing new initiatives, we focus on the dynamics of our guests, try to understand what they want and then work on something that fits with the resources and location that we have. Our beach and beautiful outdoor areas are definitely highlights, so activities that give our guests the opportunity to enjoy this are high on our agenda. We also want to be remembered for more than just our delicious food in the restaurants and the private cooking experience is a way to combine this with a cultural element. Only in making long-lasting moments can we set ourselves apart from others.”


Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba is the only property in the Kingdom to be included in TripAdvisor’s Top Hotels for Families in the Middle East.

Mossack Fonseca Supports National Reforestation Day

The Mossack Fonseca Group recently planted over 1,000 seedlings in Camino de Cruces National Park as a part of National Reforestation Day and the “Alliance for a Million.”


Panama City, Panama – November 25, 2015 /PressCable/ —


Taking a more proactive approach to the issues associated with global climate change, the Mossack Fonseca Group offered its support for the reforestation efforts adopted by Panama and much of the rest of Central America through its participation in National Reforestation Day. Recognizing the importance of the role trees play in the recovery of degraded soils, the protection of the water supply, the absorption of carbon and the emission of oxygen, the planting of a wide variety of tree species on such a grand scale is a highly beneficial measure for further protecting the environment from the potentially devastating effects of unchecked climate change.


The firm has a long history of environmental consciousness and has frequently participated in projects similar to the reforestation efforts taking place in Panama. In this particular instance, a large contingent represented the Mossfon Family at Camino de Cruces National Park to take part in the “Alliance for a Million” project undertaken by ANCON. In planting over 1,000 young seedlings throughout the park, members of the firm were able to assist ANCON as it seeks to achieve its lofty goal of stimulating the growth of forest and fruit species across 1 million hectares. With a focus on targeting the areas with the most pressing need for regrowth, members of the firm helped to ensure that forest management areas, river banks, natural forest areas and groundwater recharge zones benefited from the immediate attention.


Those participating in National Reforestation Day surely understand the impact that deforestation has had on the world at large, but Central Americans in particular are acutely aware of the consequences that have been wrought throughout the region. Over the last 40 years alone, 40 percent of the rain forests have been cleared or burned, affecting the region’s ecological balance to a significant degree. Deforestation has affected air quality, caused soil instability and endangered the 80 percent of terrestrial life that calls the forest home. Given the pervasive and accelerated nature of climate change, efforts such as the one undertaken by ANCON and the firm are necessary for ensuring future environmental stability.


About the Firm The Mossack Fonseca Group is a firm that provides exceptional legal, trust and investment consultancy to clients across the globe. Founded in 1977, the firm offers comprehensive services across every continent, specializing in international business structures, commercial law, wealth management and trust services.
