Japan's tax rates are among the highest in the world
Many investors look to real estate in Japan or abroad as a tool to reduce their Japanese taxes. Japans tax laws relating to how you can treat the depreciation in value of a building are complex but potentially a big tax saver for real estate investors. Depending on the type of structure and age of the building at aquisition, investors are able to write the acquisition costs and the buildings annual depreciation off their taxable income for a specified number of years. How you can benefit from this is pre-determined by the property or building you purchase which is why it is important to talk with an expert who can help you to source the right building for your tax planning needs. Our experts walk you through the best ways to reduce your annual income tax burden and receive substantial tax rebates.
