How do Japan's 2017 tax revisions affect you? Find out on November 29 . . .

In March, 2017, Japan revised its Inheritance and Gift Tax laws. Foreigners living in Japan for 10 years or less out of the last 15 years, on work-related visas are afforded tax relief on non-Japan assets. However, no relief is provided to foreign residents who married to Japanese nationals, or are permanent residents, or are "longer-term" foreigners who have resided in Japan for more than 10 years out of the last 15; their worldwide assets are subject to Japanese gift and inheritance tax.


In addition, for the first time, the transfer of worldwide assets by "longer-term" foreigners will remain subject to Japan inheritance and gift tax even after they depart Japan - until they have no longer lived in Japan for 10 of the last 15 years.

Therefore, transfer of worldwide assets by longer-term foreigners could remain subject to Japan inheritance and gift tax for up to 5 more years after permanent departure from Japan. Foreign national recipients of non Japan assets from Japanese nationals who have resided in Japan within the last 10 years will also be subject to Japan inheritance and gift tax. Finally, the 5 year "lookback rule" for Japanese nationals has been increased to 10 years.

Join us for a Toolbox session on November 29, when BCCJ Corporate Plus member PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC Tax Japan) will explain what these recent changes could mean for you . . .
