Drifting in the sea of many digits

Actually, my friends and I established our company and have ran it for over six years. And one more thing, I am also one of executives in another company, which faced its fiscal term last month.

Those who run their companies in Japan usually entrust their accounting to tax attorneys or certified public accountants so that executives can focus on their own business and prepare, just in case, for the investigation by tax offices. However, we can manage it by ourselves, so we have to book our transactions, either.

I’m in charge of booking and accounting in that company, so last month, many accounting documents were piled right in front of me. With an accounting software, I kept feeding all transactions. Sales, subcontracting costs, travel costs, many kinds of expenses waited for my dividing. On the monitor, you can use the software as a series of slips and ledgers. You can tell the differences between slips by their colors of the monitor, but that bright colors get my eyes exhausted.

Fortunately(probably unfortunately?), we got sufficient sales, revenues and profits. But these things lay down in front of us as a problem. It means, we had to pay specified taxes for these things. Ofcourse we understand paying taxes is our obligations, however, we would like to manage for tax purposes as long as our tax strategies legally have no problem. Taking with my colleague by phone, we finally got solutions for our final accounting.

Now that the new fiscal year has started, so we have to consider how to manage our expenses. Keeping our sales and getting profits, let’s hit the bar! (It’s just a joke…lol)

    In a recession hit period, you’re doing okay.

    Yeah, governments want their money, via taxes, so they can do whatever with it. Sometimes, wasting it.

    Enjoy your weekend.

      Hi, girlgeum, how are you?

      Yeah, tax officers strictly try to collect taxes year by year because of declination of tax revenue. Maybe we will get investigation from them next fiscal year due to too much paying expenses 😀
