I am writing to ask a question about working as a developer in Japan.
I have read your blog but am still unsure of what to do in my situation, and so,
if you could find some time to answer my question I would be most grateful.
We will be moving to Japan (Aichi most likely) to settle some time next year and so I’m looking for information about my job situation.
I currently work for a company here in the south of England and my boss has said that even if I go to Japan to settle
he wants to continue to hire me.
However I would not be a normal company employee.
He would like to hire me as essentially a contractor.
My question is, if I do this do I have to register as being self employed somehow in Japan?
Or do I just start work when I get my spouse visa and simply file tax returns when required?
Or do I need to set my self up as a company?
This may be a simple question to ask, but after looking around on Google for the past few weeks, I am still unsure as
to what I need to do in Japan to legally work as a contractor for my current employer who is based in England (once I have my spouse visa of course).
Any advice you could give on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
