TOKYO -- Japan's Financial Services Agency intends to consolidate quarterly reporting requirements for companies, looking to ease the burden on businesses while maintaining transparency for shareholders.

Publicly traded companies in Japan currently submit a quarterly securities report to the government in addition to their quarterly financial statements to the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Japan looks to scrap the securities report to the government, given the overlap between the two documents.
