  • ※2 There are two ways to transfer the capital fund.
    1) When an individual has a bank account in Japan or a stock company is jointly established by a legal entity,
    Transfer capital fund to the joint investor’s bank account in Japan, and then turn in the document (copy of the bank book) for proof that the stock company CEO has transferred all the capital fund.
    Many transfer stock in this way.2) When you do not have a bank account in Japan,
    A subcompany in Japan will ask the Japanese bank for approval in transferring the capital fund. After the bank agrees to it the parent company will transfer all of the capital fund. Thereafter you will receive the Certificate of Deposit of Paid Money issued by the bank. (Usually, it takes 2 or 3 days after the capital fund has been transferred.)But in this case, the returning of the capital fund will be done after the company is registered.It takes about one week from step 5 to step 6.
