When contacting us, please tell (fill in) that you would like to have a preliminary confirmation of the business revival support fund.




① In what cases will I be eligible for benefits?


Due to the significant impact of a decrease in demand or supply constraints due to the spread and prolongation of the new coronavirus infection (impact of the new coronavirus infection), sales in the target month differed from the base month regardless of our own business decisions. SMEs and sole proprietors who have decreased by 50% or more or 30% or more to less than 50% will be eligible for benefits.


2) What kind of things are checked in advance confirmation?


Presence or absence of documents (ledgers, etc.) prescribed by the Small and Medium Enterprise Agency regarding “whether the business is underway,” “whether it is affected by the new coronavirus infection,” and “whether it correctly understands the benefits, etc.” Confirmation will be done through questions and answers on the content of the oath.


③Do I need to go to the office to check in advance?


No need to travel to the office.

It is possible online using tools such as ZOOM, Google meet, Skype, and LINE.

If you don't have a computer, you can do it on your smartphone.


④ I can't secure time for work during the day on weekdays. Is it possible to check in advance at night or on weekends?

Our administrative scrivener office is open from 19:00 to 21:00 on weekdays and from 10:00 to 17:00 on weekends.

We will arrange the day and time of your choice.


⑤If I complete the preliminary confirmation, will I receive the Business Recovery Support Fund?

Regardless of our office, the pre-confirmation registration confirmation organization will not judge whether the applicant is eligible for benefits beyond the confirmation. In addition, the completion of the preliminary confirmation does not necessarily mean that the business revival support money will be paid. Thank you for your understanding.


⑥ We do not issue invoices or receipts for cash transactions.

petitionPlease create

⑦ There is no receipt stamp on the tax return. What should I do?

If there is a reception date and time, that's fine. Please attach any receipt notification separately.

If you don't have either, please request an inspection at the tax office and take a photo on the spot.


⑧Which invoice/receipt should I attach?

Match sales ledger with invoices and receipts. Therefore, invoices and receipts for sales are required, not for expenses. For example, if you are issuing an invoice, it will be an invoice, and if it is a cash transaction, it will be a receipt. Only one transaction in the sales ledger is fine. However, please provide two months worth of the target month and the reference month.
