About inheritance settlement
Appropriate inheritance procedures must be completed in order to inherit assets including property, bank accounts, and securities. Certain submissions must be made according to Japanese inheritance law, and there are strict deadlines for filings such as inheritance tax.
Inheritance procedures can be meticulous, time consuming, and difficult for non-experts. Multiple government entities and institutions need to be contacted, including tax office(s), legal affairs bureau(s), and financial institution(s). Each institution has its own set of procedures and required documents to submit.
