Japan – Individual income tax update

Changes in Income Tax


A number of tax changes have recently been introduced in Japan which may impact expatriates working in Japan and their employers.  These changes include:

  • A requirement for employers to make an annual report of equity compensation awarded by a foreign parent entity to Japan resident employees,
  • An extension of foreign asset reporting requirements to residents who have foreign assets in excess of JPY50 million,
  • Special tax measures for Tohoku Earthquake Restoration.

These changes are expected to come into effect on 1 January 2013.
