Since then, Japanese companies have been affected by BEAT taxation, immediate amortization of fixed assets, deductible payment of interest payment, reduction of tax rate of pesonal income tax, and reduction of pass-through income. This seminar, hosted by JCCI and Deloitte staff Toshiro Ikeda, Yuri Muraoka, Emiko Hashimoto, Yuuto Utsunomiya, and Takashi Kishimoto, will go over the latest trends and relevant matters on the ever-changing tax revision law, from corporate tax, transfer pricing taxation, and personal income tax.
