Japan Is Planning To Reduce Its 30% Crypto Tax On Token Issuers’ Paper Profits

As part of its plans to help the Japanese financial and tech sectors grow, the government of Japan wants to make it easier for local crypto businesses to meet tax requirements.

Even if they haven’t made a profit via the sale of their assets, Japanese companies that issue cryptocurrency are compelled to pay a fixed corporation tax rate of thirty percent (30%) on the value of their holdings. Because of this, it is said that over the last few years, a number of crypto and blockchain businesses with roots in the country have moved to other countries, along with some of their best employees.

The tax committee of Japan’s governing Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) met on December 15 and adopted a proposal that was previously introduced in August. The plan eliminates the need for crypto firms to pay taxes on paper profits from tokens that they have issued and owned.

It is expected that the more liberal crypto tax laws would be presented to parliament in January and that they would become operational on April 1, the first day of the new fiscal year in Japan.

Akihisa Shiozaki, a politician for the LDP and a member of the party’s Web3 policy office, told Bloomberg on the 15th of December that “this is a very major step forward,” adding that “it will become simpler for many firms to conduct business that includes issuing tokens.”

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida stressed in October that nonfungible tokens (NFTs), blockchain, and the metaverse will play important roles in the nation’s digital transformation. The most recent move from the government appears to signal that its hunger to promote and develop the domestic crypto and Web3 sectors hasn’t waned despite the FTX disaster. The Prime Minister used the example of digitising national identification cards as an illustration.
