Company Credit Reports in Japan

There are two dominant company rating agencies in Japan: TDB and TSR. They make researches on companies always based on direct interviews. If the target company does not accept the direct interview, there is no entry to their databases.

A typical good rated company should have a recent filing on both TSR and TDB databases, First you must have a filing on those databases. Otherwise your company will not get a full credit from your new customers.

From Japanese point of view, new large size business customers would not place a full trust on this kind of company which does not even have a filing on TDB database. And it also means that it is not easy to gather information on this company.

Japanese government registry records do not disclose any tax return related information to the private sectors unless the company is publicly listed. That’s the reason why TDB and TSR type of investigation is dominant in Japan.

It is impossible to conduct a comprehensive litigation records check in Japan.

Only the supreme court records are open to the public in Japan. The records date back over ten years.

Sources we can search are:

FYI
You should consider the legal system of each country. Japan and most East Asian countries adopted Continental Law or the written law form mainly Germany. It is contrary to the Common Law or the case law that the US adopted. The written law means the description of the laws is written. So you don’t have to search precedent cases. That’s why litigation records are not open to the public, and they are mainly not searchable. In the case of Common Law, no attorneys can operate without getting access to the litigation records database because the laws are constantly changing depending on the previous cases.
