The supplier then pays a sales commission to the agent in the percentage specified in the contract or agency contract. Once an agent or distribution agreement has been signed and the British company`s products are established in the Japanese market, the British company may consider establishing a representation in Japan to support the distributor`s sales and marketing efforts. Representatives of a foreign supplier in Japan may be classified as a “legitimate representative” authorized by the foreign supplier to enter into sales contracts with customers in Japan and (a mere “Commission representative” who is not entitled to do so, but who is only licensed as an intermediary between the foreign supplier and those customers for the sale of products from the first company to that latter. (2) The fictitious manifestation of the intention of the fictitious manifestation of intent is a manifestation of intent which is not a genuine intention, made in consultation with another party. It is the same as concealing a true intention in the sense that the person making the demonstration knows that the Manifestation is not his true intention. The difference is that the manifestation of intent is made with the agreement of the other party. This is the general definition, but on the other hand, there is also the view that “it gives the impression that the manifestation of intent was in consultation with the other party, and there is no manifestation of intent called a “fictitious manifestation of intent.” This last point of view is probably easier to understand. Take, for example, the case where debtor A is faced with having his house confiscated by creditors if the current situation persists, so he acts in agreement with Customers B to claim that the house has been sold to B and transfers the property right to B. In this case too, the “responsibility of the person concerned” is great. But there is no “need for protection from the other side.” The other side knows that this is a show of intent with no real intent. Therefore, Article 94, paragraph 1, of the Civil Code simply provides that “any fictitious manifestation of intent made in accordance with another party (ies) is annulled.” However, it is necessary to protect third parties who are not direct counterparties.
