Qualified Invoicing in Japan

A new input tax credit method, a ‘Qualified Invoice System’, was announced in 2021 for implementation in October 2023. This will allow taxpayers to claim Japanese Consumption Tax (JCT) input credit from JCT-registered vendors, with Peppol e-invoicing as a recommended format by the Japan Digital Agency (JDA). The JDA aims to accelerate the digitalisation of Japanese businesses and to streamline processes, achieve faster payments, and engage in greener business practices through this initiative.
