Japanese eCommerce – new eServices consumption tax

Mon, Jan 25, 2016
Japanese eCommerce has been revamped with the government now requiring foreign businesses supplying eServices to Japanese consumers to account for the current 8% consumption tax. The new rules came into effect on October 1, 2015. The bill amending the Japanese Consumption Tax (JCT) was passed on March 31. Registrations for the new digital consumption tax opened on July 1 and on August 17 Japan’s National Tax Agency (NTA) released a list of foreign digital service businesses thus far registered.
