The PwC Japan Group will implement the following measures, in addition to the measures we have taken so far, based on the state of emergency issued by the Government on Tuesday, April 7 to deal with the spread of COVID-19 in seven prefectures including Tokyo, Osaka, and Fukuoka.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused to our clients and other relevant parties affected by the measures, but we ask for your understanding, as this is an effort to prevent the spread of the epidemic and to ensure the safety of our staff.

  • Measures with respect to our offices located in Tokyo, Osaka, and Fukuoka
    • In accordance with the purpose of the declaration of the state of emergency, we will reduce the functions of each office located in the target areas of Tokyo, Osaka, and Fukuoka, and suspend reception services.
    • In those offices, we will continue to provide our services through telecommuting. For services that are remarkably difficult to carry out when working from home, the necessary functions will be maintained by having a minimum number of personnel present in the office with due regard given to safety.
    • The period is from Wednesday, April 8 to Wednesday, May 6.
    • Regarding our offices located in Nagoya and Kyoto, they will be subject to the measures previously announced.
