Client Testimonials

Nakashima Tax and Accounting Office is the wisest choice in Tokyo/Japan. (Keepers Field Limited (UK), Global investment company)


①How did you find our office?

I was recommended Nakashima T&A via an initial introduction from an international legal firm. I needed some very specific assistance in setting up a Japanese GK for a real estate investment in Japan. This set up carried a high degree of complexity due to taxation matters between the UK and Japan. Nakashima T&A managed to unravel the complexity in a way that made this investment opportunity a true, delightful reality.

②What kind of needs, problems or concerns did you have?

We always need a quick response. Nakashima T&A has an impressive work ethic and impeccable communication skills, whether in writing or verbally. Nakashima T&A has also managed to link my company with other very useful contacts in Japan (e.g., banks, VISA companies).

③What do you feel about our service?

Nakashima T&A is the perfect company if you wish to obtain the professional advice.
It is imperative to obtain the best local (and international, cross border) advice when entertaining businesses in Japan. Nakashima T&A shows a level of commitment that is second to none in understanding one’s needs and coming up with pragmatic solutions to the array of problems and opportunities.
From simple to complex tasks Nakashima T&A is the wisest choice in Tokyo/Japan.
