Aozora Bank Currency Gross Domestic Product of Japan Exchange rate of USD to JPY Upside Risks: Downside risks: The exchange rate of yen is affected by : Trillion Real long-term yield falls in the US and companies become active, thus growth beats expectation, pushing Japan’s exports and output higher.
European fiscal concerns recede in response to strong policy responses. Yen depreciates significantly alongside further monetary loosening and market intervention. Deflationary expectation wanes in Japan as global inflationary expectation heighten alongside increased government spending to support reconstruction efforts. Economic concerns result in extreme caution about an inventory build-up, so significant adjustments are made.
Yen rises sharply for whatever reason
US companies remain defensive and restructure, leading the US economy into a downturn.European debt crisis worsens.
Crude oil prices surge due to geopolitical issues in the Middle East.
Monetary and fiscal tightening measures are taken globally, due to concerns about inflation and fiscal deficits.

Operating Income
Research and Development Expense
Fixed Assets
Lease Business Income Tax In Japan, in view of the corporate income tax rate (corporation tax) mainly includes the legal person of the assessable income to the collection of national tax (about 30%) and local tax. And local tax includes that even if no assessable income, the companies also have to pay to the standard capitation tax based on the size of the company. So, contained the actual local tax, the business income tax rate is about 42%. In addition, the corporate tax that the tax amount divided by net profit before the actual burden rate, in most cases, is more than the actual rate. In the local tax, even if the legal person not have assessable income, also must pay capitation tax based on legal residents’ tax and external standard tax based on the size of corporation. That is to say, even if the legal person income is deficit, the company also has the obligations to pay taxes. The reason is that the legal person, as the resident of this area, benefits from the local government in the public service facilities, so must pay the local tax. Paying business income tax has to make a tax declaration. In terms of national tax, the companies have to make a tax declaration to tax bureau where companies belong. And in terms of local tax, companies have to make declarations to local prefecture and district. If the branches and shops located in different prefectures and districts, the branches and shops have to make declarations separately.
