Under Corporate Law,  to establish any form of legal presence there is a requirement for  at least one resident representative (director, executive manager, member, etc. as applicable to each form). This can be either a Japanese national or a foreign national holding relevant and valid long term visa in Japan.
 

At ProWorks, we provide nominee representatives from among one of our partners as service to clients who:
1. do not have a resident representative, or
2. wish to segregate duties and have a reliable third party to control the company seal and bank based on the instructions of the representatives appointed by the head-quarters. In Japan companies are represented by registered company seal (not a signature), which is registered in the name of the entity and the resident representative. As such the appointed representative has a great deal of individual control over the entity, i.e. segregation of duties is often sought by companies requiring rigid internal controls.
