Information as Displayed on National Tax Agency's Corporate Number Publication Site

The information as displayed on the National Tax Agency's Corporate Number Publication Site is described.

Since the JIS third or fourth letters or nonstandard letters may not be entered from or displayed on personal computers used by users, the letters in a registered trade name and address are replaced with the JIS first or second level letters in advance so that they are properly displayed on the "National Tax Agency's Corporate Number Publication Site." For example, the letter "the image of the JIS third or fourth letter means law" is replaced with "the image of the JIS first or second letter means law".

  1. (Note)The Basic 3 Information of an association without juridical personality or the like is not published without the prior consent of its representative or manager. The fact that there are descriptions in this section does not mean that the information has been published.
