Project Description

I am looking for a Japanese speaking person who can find some basic information for me in Japan. If you can find the following information (posted below) then I will compensate you according to the quality of the information that is given to me. This will be a pretty simple task for the Japanese speaker who knows what to look for.

Here is some background information:

I am looking to incorporate in Japan and need to open a bank account (to accept payment and pay bills). I am a "non-citizen" and "non-resident" and have no intention of residing in Japan so I do not need a visa BUT I do need a bank account. The problem I am finding is that I "can not" open a bank account without visa status (which again I "do not" want to obtain).

***This is the main information I need the freelancer to find***

Is there another option of opening a bank account legally under my name, as a foreigner, if I have a corporation registered in Japan - "without any visa or residency status".

The freelancer will have to call banks, accounting/corporate setup firms to find this information and I will pay the freelancer even if the answer is a "no" as long as I am given a full report with banks and accounting/corporate setup firms contacted and detail what was mentioned.

I understand that there are accounting companies that will incorporate, set up a bank, act as a director / address proxy for me but they charge too much for their service so I am looking for something where I don't need to go through 3rd party services that charge so much money.


- Payment will be $30 for a basic report even if all the answers are "no, this is not possible" as long as the report details why it is not possible and shows multiple sources.

- If you are successful in finding a "yes" solution that doesn't involve a third party, I will pay you $200 for your report.

- If you find another possible solution, I will pay you in between $30~$200 based on how helpful the information is to me.
