Yuki graduated with a degree in commercial science in 2003 and then worked in sales and accounting for a heavy industry manufacturer. After 10 years she moved to a tax accounting firm. She spent 5 years in the firm's Business Process Outsourcing division gaining experience by providing accounting services to clients in a wide range of industries. She joined KWE in 2018 and is currently working primarily on tax matters.
An environment where I can take on challenges freely
I came to KWE in mid-career, and right away my supervisor told me to make the best of my prior experience and to feel free to change the old structures and ways of doing things. Of course, there was a rational reason for doing things in a certain way in the past, so great care must be taken when changing a process, but the people at KWE sincerely listen and discuss my proposals for improvement. Even before I became a manager myself, when I proposed taking on some new work in the tax division, I was entrusted with doing it all - from planning through execution. I feel that if you speak up on your own initiative, KWE's corporate culture means you will be met face-to-face.
The future role of the tax division
Recently the tax environment has radically changed for global enterprises such as KWE. Certainly, taxes are one cost of doing business, but I believe it is more necessary than ever to strategically manage tax costs. That means I need to always keep my eyes and ears open to changes in social circumstances, industry and corporate trends, and tax revisions, while proactively proposing initiatives to reduce tax costs and tax risks. We start where we can make a real change, and steadily build a good track record as the tax division to demonstrate our presence. This kind of "expressive accounting" is my goal. And it is not something I can do alone. Currently the tax division includes 4 other members in addition to myself, and I want to work hard in cooperation with everyone.
