VAT in Japan will rise from 5% to 8% in April 2014

Following the instructions of the IMF the government of Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, will raise the VAT rate from 5% to 8% since April 1st. It will be the first increase in this tax since 1997.

To mitigate the impact of this measure in consumption, the government will activate other policies to maintain the momentum of the Japanese economy. Among them, it is expected that in February the Bank of Japan announced an increase between 30 and 40 % on the purchase of government bonds (JGB) which will cause a higher devaluation of the Yen. During year 2013 the yen has been depreciated by 22% in front of euro, which is heavily favoring the powerful muscle of japanese exports.

With the combination of these circumstances, the first months of 2014 are presented as the best scenario for the realization of exports from Japan to Europe .

Nippon Express of Spain, through its network of offices in the old continent and especially in Japan is the best choice to make their exports quickly and reliably, getting advantage over your competitors.

New rules for Incoterms 2010

Nippon Express de España informs you that as of 01.01.2011 entered into force the new Incoterms 2010 rules drawn up by the International Chamber of Commerce. These rules take into account the increasing use of electronic communications in transactions, heightened security concerns in the movement of goods and changes in transport applications. This has led to regroup them into two categories, classified according to transport modes used, as follows:

1) Rules for any mode or modes of transport:

EXW                      FCA
CPT                        CIP
DAT                       DAP


2) Rules for Maritime Transport and Waterways:

FAS                     FOB
CFR                     CIF

As a result of the publication of these new Incoterms 2010 rules, is also regulated by Resolution of the Department of Customs and II.EE of July 17, 2012 for filling in the Single Administrative Document (SAD), the requirement of adapting delivery terms of the goods to the new Incoterms 2010, exclusively reserving the use of the terms FAS, FOB, CFR and CIF for maritime and inland waterway.Due to the economic situation of our country and the possible restrictive interpretation of the standard referred to in the preceding paragraph, the inappropriate use of Incoterms for delivery terms, could be subject to a fine by the Department of Customs and II.EETherefore, we ask that as far as possible you proceed to check the delivery terms of goods and, where appropriate, and depending on the transport used, adapted to the rules established by the Incoterms 2010, avoid misapplication of the same in their relationships with customers and also any penalties as provided in our national legislation.
