Japan will revise VAT rate (Value-Added Tax)

《For customers who receive products in Japan》

【Application date of the new VAT】
Due to the amendment of the VAT rate which will occur on October 1st, we will deal with it as per the following below:

8% VAT will apply for all products collected by September 30th, 2019
10% VAT will apply for all products collected from October 1st, 2019

* Please note that the VAT rate will apply depending on the date of collection and not the date of purchase.

【About the invoices】
Invoices will be provisionally issued at the following VAT rate.。

8%VAT rate for all invoices issued till September 20th
10%VAT rate for all invoices issued from September 21th

※ The VAT rate on the invoices will be provisional. Depending on the product collection date and VAT in the invoices shall be revised.

Example 1: When payment is made with an invoice issued at 8% and customer has collected the goods after October, then a 2% extra VAT will be charged separately.

Example 2: When payment is made with an invoice issued at 10% and the goods are collected in September, then 2% will be refunded or credited back.

Car collection in late September is expected to be very crowded, so we ask for your understanding and try to schedule earliest pick up date possible.

* The described measures are not applicable for customers who are using TAU shipping services.
