Japanese Consumption Tax | Tax-inclusive Pricing will be required from April 2021.

As of April 1, 2021, the total amount including consumption tax (Shohi-Zei, 消費税) must be indicated in the price labeling for consumers.

In other words, the price tag could be indicated like “10,000 yen plus consumption tax” until March 2021, but from April 2021, the price will have to be indicated like “11,000 yen”.

This regulation is applied to all of the price indications such as price tags, flyers, catalogues and also websites.
