JAPANESE BUSINESS PRACTICES

International SAP roll-outs face specific Japan requirements. A few examples

?
  • Electronic payments: A specific file format called Zengin that includes Katakana is used for all domestic electronic payments in JPY.
?
  • Printed documents exchanged with Japanese suppliers and customers: specific requirements by counterpart including Japanese characters etc.
