Start-up Support Services

VentureINQ's Start-up support

VentureINQ has accumulated specialized expertise in small and medium-sized companies, which is different from that of general accounting firms, based on (1) international tax and accounting skills, (2) English language skills, and (3) start-up know-how. We have the following features

01 Tax and accounting advice to prepare for IPO auidit

In the IPO preparation period, the need to prepare financial statements in accordance with accounting standards causes a divergence between accounting and taxation, and the method of accounting bookkeeping must be changed from a tax basis to an accounting basis. With such an increase in the number of items to be reconciled in the annexed table, we provide support to withstand the IPO audit by accurately explaining the differences between accounting standards and tax treatment and providing tax advice, including tax-effect accounting.

02 Tax advice for international transactions

As your transactions with foreign companies increase, you will need to consider international withholding tax. In addition, when an overseas subsidiary is established, transactions with foreign related parties arise and there are many issues to consider, such as issues related to taxation of contributions. We provide international tax advice, including tax treaties, based on our high level of expertise and experience to meet the needs of such international expansion.

03 Support by experienced IPO professionals

Our representative has served as an officer of a listed company and experienced the process of listing on Mothers and the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. We also have staff members who have experienced listing on Mothers as accounting staff, and can provide advice based on corporate side practices.

04 IPO expertise

We have assisted many companies preparing for IPOs and have accumulated the latest know-how regarding IPOs. We can provide accounting and tax advice as well as advice on the establishment of management systems.

05 Advice on financing

In the financing from Series A to Series B, it is necessary to establish an SO system to raise the motivation of the CXO and the organization, as well as financing with an awareness of value creation at the time of IPO. Most recently, we have been consulting on financing during the IPO preparation period, such as SO trust after Series B and bridge financing between Series A and Series B by J-Kiss.

06 Support by a certified public accountant who is also familiar with accounting standards

Our CPAs have extensive IPO experience and can provide advice on the latest accounting standards. We also provide support for short reviews with audit firms and negotiations with audit firms during the IPO preparation period.
