法律・会計のQ&A

 The “Legal/Accounting Services” visa status is actually much more narrow in scope than it would appear.

  First of all, the “Legal/Accounting Services” visa status is restricted to people who hold specific licenses. The licenses would apply: Japanese Attorney(“Bengoshi”), Shiho-Shoshi Lawyer, Land and House Investigator, Registered Foreign Lawyer, Japanese Certified Public Accountant, Foreign Certified Public Accountant, Certified Public Tax Accountant, Labor and Social Security Attorney, Japanese Patent Attorney, Marine Procedure Commission Agent, and Certified Administrative Procedures Legal Specialist.

 Second, even if the applicant in question held one of the licenses listed above, they would only require the “Legal/Accounting Services” visa status if their work duties are by nature something that only someone with the license in question would be qualified to do. For example, someone who has a license listed above and uses their legal specialist knowledge for their work, but the work itself does not require the license by law, the person would not fall under the “Legal/Accounting Services” visa status. In cases such as these, the status needed would generally be “Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services.”

 Also, even in cases where the person in question holds the relevant license and conducts the relevant work, if they are running their own firm, they would generally fall not under the “Legal/Accounting Services” visa status, but under “Business Manager.”

 In the case outlined in the question above, the paralegal would most likely fall under “Engineer/Specialist in Humanities/International Services.”

 該当しません。「法律・会計業務」に該当する活動は、法律上資格を有する者が行うこととされている法律又は会計に係る業務と定められています。日本の国家資格を有していない者が行うことは認められていない活動となります。そのため、「技術・人文知識・国際業務」や「経営・管理」等、他の在留資格に該当するかを確認した上で、採用を決定することをお勧めいたします。

 貴日本人が従事する場合に受ける報酬額と同等額以上の報酬の定めはありません。「法律・会計業務」の対象が法律上資格を有する職業に限定されており、これらの資格を有する場合には、日本人が従事する場合に受ける報酬額と同等額以上の報酬を受けるのが一般的であることから、低賃金労働者の入国を排除するための報酬に係る基準を定める必要がない考えられています。
