Payroll & Social insurance

Have you ever had any of the following concerns?

  • Finding difficulties in hiring someone to take charge of payroll responsibilities due to the limited size of the current business.
  • It is hard to keep up with the frequent changes in tax law and social security related law.
  • Willing to keep the payroll and personal information confidential to other employees.

Payroll calculations are conducted monthly at a determined time. Delays and miscalculation are not tolerated.

In Japan, payroll staff are required to proceed a variety of duties throughout the year such as Year-end Adjustment (in December), Legal Records (in January), Declaration of Labor Insurance (in July), and Notification of base amount for calculation of social insurance (in July). Since the Japanese personal income tax laws, corporate tax laws, and social insurance related laws change frequently, businesses need to hire experts who are up-to-date on the recent law changes.

Some international companies are required to perform very complex payroll calculations, such as using the Gross up method, calculating Hypothetical Taxes, and performing Expats payroll calculations.

Payroll calculations require personal information, such as birth date, address, family information, social security number, and “my number”. Security measures for personal information become necessary.

To address such concerns, KOMIYAMA & Co. Group provides various services related to payroll calculations and social security as well.
