Representative Profile


Thank you for visiting my website!

I am Ryoko Tomura, the representative tax accountant.

I started my business in Yokohama in April 2016 after working in several companies’ accounting and finance departments and for a tax accountant corporation.

I mainly provide tax advisory services for users of cloud accounting (Money Forward Cloud, freee).

The reason why I specialize in cloud accounting is as follows.

  • I want to support “small business owners” who are the target of cloud accounting.
  • I am convinced that managing their own figures will be an asset for them in the long term.
  • I want to digitalize accounting processes as much as I can and share the client’s vision of what is to come.

From 2020 to 2023, the coronavirus has caused people to question the way they work and live.

I believe small businesses will change the world in the future.

The development of technology will be one of the ways to help this change.

I see it as my mission to support everyone who dares to take such a step forward.
