Members Success Stories – Bansho Ito C.P.A. Corp.
Bansho Ito C.P.A. Corp. (“Bansho Ito”) was originally started by two partners, Masayuki Bansho (who was a reginal tax officer) and Takashi Ito, a Licensed Tax Accountant. Two young partners, who used to work for PricewaterhouseCoopers Japan (Tax), joined Bansho Ito recently. Takuma Kobayashi is an outstanding partner who holds not only the tax accountant licence but is also an attorney at law. Toshihiko Sano has the license of tax accountant with various international tax and has experiences at multinational accounting firms.
These two young partners introduced the concept of one-stop bilingual services and bring new waves and synergy for Bansho Ito, attracting and retaining multinational clients with high efficiency and effective services. Since no other firm is currently providing such similar in-house one-stop services with reasonable fees, Bansho Ito is seeing an increasing number of new multinational clients every year. Bansho Ito is planning to hire more, young professionals so that they can manage the increasing assignments from multinational clients.
Bansho Ito is also keen on introducing new systems for the firm therefore, in 2015, Bansho Ito was successfully registered as a certified advisor for one of the best-selling cloud accounting system in Japan, which is called “freee”. The “freee” is one of the best market leader in the cloud accounting system for small and medium sized companies in Japan. The small and medium sized companies are able to harmonize the exportation of banking transaction files into the cloud accounting system which save them bookkeeping and other administrative time approximately by 50% and in some cases even up to 90%. This has brings about a new innovative move in Japan’s accounting software market.
Bansho Ito is currently ready for expansion both locally and globally through 3E accounting network. Riding on 3E’s reputable and effective systems, Bansho Ito is set to create another success story in the near future.
