The tax rate in Japan

While in Germany basic foodstuffs are taxed at a rate of 7 percent, in the Japanese states this rate is 8 percent. Everything else is taxed there at 10 percent - a stark difference from the 19 percent in Germany. However, this is already an increased tax rate for Japan. Last year, the value-added tax was raised there in order to curb the enormous social costs that arise from the heavily over-aged Japanese society. One major advantage of e-commerce compared to stationary trade is that the market to be reached is not regionally limited. However, there are legal and tax aspects to consider when selling abroad - a big issue here is sales tax.

The store settings in Shopware - country selection

In addition to the items Currency, Customer Group and Taxes, there is the sub-item "Countries" in the Shopware settings There, all sales territories, countries and associated federal states or states can be specified. In connection with the sub-item "Countries", the item "Currency" should also be considered in order to offer these to your customers in the storefront.
