Answer to last week’s “Jeopardy!”: In most countries, obtaining space of an existing distribution center is a simple matter of paying rent. In what country is the process a good deal more complicated than this? Japan. To obtain space, tenants often need to pay a number of charges. First, they need to pay into a construction contribution fund – typically a one-time payment of about 18 months’ rent, refundable – without interest – after ten years. Second, a security deposit of three years’ rent is refundable only at the end of the lease – again with no interest. Third, there’s the monthly rent. On top of all that, there are various administrative charges to contend with.
