WHITE PAPER ON SMALL ENTERPRISES IN JAPAN 2018
The “small enterprises” that are the concern of the White Paper on Small Enterprises are businesses with a regular workforce of 20 or fewer employees (or five or fewer employees in the case of businesses in the commerce and service industries), as defined by the Basic Act for Promoting Small Enterprises (Article 2, Paragraph 1). In the text, however, the term “micro businesses” is used to make it clear that small enterprises include “sole proprietorships” as well as “companies.” DOWNLOAD
