Understanding Japan’s Social Insurance System
One of the most important elements of establishing your company’s Japan payroll system is understanding your obligations as an employer for paying into the country’s social insurance service. This is a mandatory program that all employers must pay into to provide for employees’ health care, retirement, unemployment and workplace injury benefits. In addition to the contributions you need to make as a company employing people here, you also are responsible for withholding those made by your personnel from their paychecks.
Another critical point to consider is your participation in the Japanese “My Number” program. Like the Social Security Number in the United States, this is provided to each resident by the Japanese government. Protecting this information from thieves is of the utmost importance, as anyone found to have leaked numbers or associated data could be punished with stiff penalties that range from heavy fines to criminal prosecution.
Working with us means that you can be successful in navigating these complex and crucial requirements. We ensure that you’ll be in compliance thanks to our comprehensive expertise and services.
