How foreign exchange risk is hedged? What are the merits of using the service referred by our company?

 

Common risk hedge method for exchange rate

When foreign patent annuity is paid, it is very often proceeded through annuity service provider, including Japanese IP firm, between you and local annuity payer such as a local IP firm or IP attorney.

When foreign patent annuity is paid by such a route, it is often found difference between the exchange rate actually paid to local annuity payer from service provider and that charged to you. Annuity service provider, as risk hedge of exchange rate, prepares an invoice using exchange rate of the amount which about 2 to 6 JPY are added to the actual exchange rate, including TTS, when invoicing to you. For annuity service provider, if the exchange rate indicated in an invoice to you is higher than that actually paid to local payer, it is profit for the service provider. Adversely, if the exchange rate indicated in an invoice to you is lower than that actually paid to local payer, it is loss for the service provider. Such exchange rate system by the added amount as above is often seen for the purpose that annuity service provider avoids and hedges such loss as possible as it can.

Thus, if you are charged the cost of foreign annuity payment, you may pay to annuity service provider at exchange rate higher than the actual exchange rate paid. So the more the patent annuity number is, the more you pay added exchange rate. You are forced to transfer the risk hedge amount for and to annuity service provider.

 

Risk hedge of exchange rate in this service

From the thought that we want to solve the said demerit and doubt of exchange rate for you as much as possible, we provide you with a solution that is to not cause demerits and doubt by transferring money at actual exchange rate, involving TTS, to the Partner from you directly. Furthermore, even though you choose “deposit” of Arrangement Course, since we charge you at TTS at the time of billing deposit, there is no added amount to exchange rate as risk hedge. Also, since we transfer money from the deposit to the Partner and list the actually paid exchange rate in the deposit balance statement, there is no room that added amount as such risk hedge is listed in the balance statement.

From the thought that we want to eliminate risk hedge of exchange rate as much as possible, and we have created the scheme as you pay to the Partner directly.

In addition, it is often seen a kind of item “remittance fee” and the amount in an invoice, but there seems to be annuity service providers that charge added amount to the actual remittance fee. Adversely, we calculate without actually adding the actual remittance fee.
