How to deal with Consumption Tax when doing business with or in Japan

"Do I have to pay Consumption Tax?", "How can I get paid consumption tax back?" or “Do I need a Tax number?” How to deal with Consumption Tax when doing business with or in Japan is a question that is often asked to JTPP Helpdesk's experts, as Japan's CT system operates rather differently from the EU VAT regime.

In this webinar, Tokyo-based tax attorney Mrs. Hiroko Koido will give an outline of the rules and the latest developments regarding Consumption Tax in Japan.
The webinar is targeted to SMEs who do business with or in Japan and would become more knowledgeable about fiscal aspects.
