The trading partnership between Japan and Australia is long-standing and increasingly important to both countries’ economies.
Japan is Australia’s second-largest export market, and our stable industries – including infrastructure, real estate, education and technology – and resources-rich country means Japan is Australia’s second-largest source of foreign direct investment after the USA. There is a healthy interdependency between the two countries; a partnership underpinned by friendship for more than 70 years.
Our Japan practice works with Grant Thornton’s Japanese network to help Japanese companies achieve their ambitions through investment and market expansion into Australia: from new entrants at the very beginning of their Australian growth journey, to helping existing investors expand their market share or diversify their portfolios. We also work with Australian companies looking to Japan to expand their businesses by accessing the opportunities in this valuable market.
By engaging with our team, clients are given access to local experts via Grant Thornton’s global network to support all stages of a transaction: the full breadth of tax, accounting and advisory expertise in both Australia and Japan to not only help you set up your global footprint and meet the very unique and complex tax and compliance requirements of each jurisdiction, but also to navigate the necessary cultural integration required to ensure a transaction’s success. We understand what it means to do business in Australia and Japan and have the connections to the best experts – including banking and law firms – you need for a successful transaction or investment.
