Japan has few legal requirements, but cultural and business customs can be cumbersome to address.  We can note consolidated monthly invoices, invoice templates, detailed VAT codes, etc.  We address those and bring our solutions if needed.

 

There is one legal requirement to address on Revenue Recognition. Usually, the VAT is also recognized along with the revenue, not at the timing of invoicing.  NetSuite does not natively support this requirement, however, we have developed a solution.
