Taxable Purchases that is eligible for tax credit
“Taxable Purchases that is eligible for tax credit” mean the transfer or lease of assets from another party to a business or provisions of services received by that business inside Japan. For example, Taxable Purchases include not only the procurement of products and goods for inventory but also the purchase of buildings, machinery or consumables for business purposes, repair expenses and fuel costs for delivery vehicles. However, interest and discount fees, insurance premiums and the purchase or lease of land are non-taxable transactions and therefore not classified as Taxable Purchase. The payment of salaries and wages that is not subject to tax is also excluded from Taxable Purchases.
Purchasing goods for inventory or receiving services from consumers or tax-exempt businesses are also considered as Taxable Purchases.
When purchasing depreciable assets, the entire amount expended is taxable for the year of the purchase.
