Japan to offer one-stop e-filing for businesses

Unified platform will share information among agencies to ease the burden

Many Japanese companies still use paper documents for government filings.

TOKYO -- The Japanese government aims to slash the hours that companies spend on tax and other filings by more than a fifth through consolidating various government e-filing platforms.

Under the new system, due to be introduced around 2020, such common information as the company name and employee salaries will be shared across government e-filing channels to eliminate the need to input the same data multiple times.
