Claiming Sales Tax Refunds

When non-residents purchase real estate, sales tax (building purchase price×sales tax % ) is applied to the building price (purchase price excluding land price). However, it is possible to receive a refund on this sales tax by claiming a refund.

Points of caution when claiming Sales Tax Refunds

As submission of various documents to the tax bureau is necessary and only those who meet the requirements are applicable, we recommend consultation before making your real estate purchase.

Let’s consult an international tax accountant regarding whether or not the case above has possibilities of a refund.

 Foreigners residing overseas and Japanese citizens residing overseas are regarded as「non-residents」in Japanese tax laws, and are exempt from not only residency taxes but in some cases, also exempt or alleviated from income taxes due to utilization of the tax treaty.
Furthermore, in contrary to residents, income within Japan are withheld. Even after filing tax returns, it is possible to claim refund for tax withheld by requesting correction. In order to do so, it is important to understand the possibility and amount of refunds.
