日本買房稅務大全

日本買房稅 務時常搞不懂? 台灣人到日本買房已然成為房地產投資的顯學之一,由於日本買房成本較低、文化親近、交通時間與時區優勢等,吸引許多人前往日本置產。在日本買房經常被提到的就是複雜的各項費用與稅費,經常會提到許多房地產人士提到日本房產的持有成本較高,需要繳納多項日本稅目及日本房產的管理費及保險費等,認為日本買房似乎並不容易。但其實因日本的房地產制度相當成熟並且透明化,我們可以在購入日本不動產之前詳細計算所有的支出費用,更有相當多具有經驗的日本房產仲介進入台灣或香港等兩岸三地的海外房產市場,有意願購買者可以輕鬆找到許多可靠的品牌(如信義房屋、東京都心、WACLASS等),幾乎不必擔心買房安全風險或詐騙考量。

▶ 購入不動產時有這些稅

✦ 仲介手数料

由於日本的不動產買賣制度已經非常成熟,透過合格的仲介來協助買賣日本房屋的流程十分重要,支付相應的仲介費用也是必須負擔的支出。在日本買房千萬不要貪小便宜,如果今天聽到某個不知名業者跟你說可以不用支付仲介費,那麼反而要留心對方是否以非法的方式進行房屋買賣,務必避開。仲介費用一般為購買物件的3%+6萬日幣+消費稅,不建議進行仲介費用的議價,因為好的仲介公司可以幫忙打點很多在日本擁有資產的潛規則,讓購買者可以降低風險並節省時間成本。

✦ 司法書士手数料

司法書士手續費基本上等同於台灣的代書費用,需要有政府頒發合格證照的人員協助買賣房產過戶的文件確認,也是無法避免的費用。根據不同的事務所規模與可靠性,費用不一,根據過往的經驗大約含消費稅約10-20萬日幣不等,偶爾也有見到低於10萬日幣的司法書士費用,但可靠性與風險性需要自行拿捏,切莫因小失大。

✦ 印紙代

這個是經常見到的印花稅,印花稅的相關費用是繳納給政府的,印紙代作為日本買房時候必須負擔的費用,會依據不動產買賣的合約,上面所寫定的金額來計算稅務金額。相關的稅務截至2022年07月最新資料如下,網路上許多關於日本房地產印紙代相關稅率資料並沒有即時更新,在計算實際費用時可能會有所出入,務必確認清楚,才可以獲得準確的投資報酬與資金管理。買賣合約上標示的金額(購買金額)優惠稅額標準稅額10萬日圓以下免稅免稅10萬日圓~50萬日圓200日圓400日圓50萬日圓~100萬日圓500日圓1,000日圓100萬日圓~500萬日圓1,000日圓2,000日圓500萬日圓~1,000萬日圓5,000日圓1萬日圓1,000萬日圓~5,000萬日圓1萬日圓2萬日圓5,000萬日圓~1億日圓3萬日圓6萬日圓1億日圓~5億日圓6萬日圓10萬日圓5億日圓~10億日圓16萬日圓20萬日圓10億日圓~50億日圓32萬日圓40萬日圓50億日圓以上48萬日圓60萬日圓

✦ 登錄免許稅

在日本購買房地產的時候進行相關的登記與手續,登陸免許稅的費用主要是依託於此,登陸免許稅的費用計算方式都是基於政府進行的估價,費用通常低於實際市價許多,購買新房時的所有權保存登記稅率為0.4%;購買中古屋的所有權移轉登記費用稅率為2%。土地所有權的移轉登記稅率為2%(政策優惠:令和5年(2023)3月31日相關稅率降低至1.5%)。並且如果房產是自用的話,在登陸免許稅的部分有提供各式各樣的優惠減稅:例如自用房產面積超過50㎡以上以及抗震與結構條件符合標準,新房稅率減至0.15%,取得低碳建築的新房稅率減至0.1%;中古屋稅率則降低為0.3%等。順帶一堤,有抵押貸款的投資者需要進行抵當權登記。抵當權登記的登錄免許稅稅率為0.4%, 如果符合前述所講相關優惠條件稅率將減至0.1%。需要留意的是建物和土地的費用與適用稅率不同,因此在購買房產時必須確認個別的面積以及交易時的建築態樣,來評估購買相關不動產的實際費用。

✦ 不動產取得稅

日本的不動產取得稅是購買或透過任何方式取得不動產時,必須要繳納給日本政府的稅費,通常會在取得房產之後的數個月至半年期間被通知繳納。當海外投人士投資日本房產,需要向不動產所在地點的地方政府繳納一次性的不動產取得稅。不動產價值評估由日本地方政府相關單位負責,固定評價證明書可從該房產所在地的都税事務所取得。目前來說,土地和自用住宅的稅率是3%, 而非自用房產的稅率是4%。簡單來說,不動產取得稅額的計算公式如下:(政府認定房產估價-該當免稅額)x稅率。

▶ 持有不動產時要繳的稅 (*特別注意)

✦ 固都稅(固定資產稅+都市計畫稅)

固定資產稅

在日本持有房地產的人需要依照固定資產(土地+房產)的政府估價繳納固定資產稅,通常稅率是1.4%,繳納的固定資產稅為固定資產估價*1.4%。在住宅的部分經常見到的特殊項目是「小規模住宅用地」(小於200平方米的住宅用地),小規模住宅用地的計稅基礎是估價的1/6,如果是一般的住宅用地則會被分類為「一般住宅用地」,計稅基礎則是估價的1/3。日本地方政府每三年會進行一次固定資產的價值評估,通常政府評估價值大約是市值的50%-80%,實際依照固定資產的面積大小與屋齡以及建築態樣而有所價,每年的納稅通知書上可以看到政府的估值金額。

都市計畫稅

如果持有的房地產位在日本的「都市計畫地區」,那麼就需要繳交都市計畫稅。所謂「都市計畫地區」通常是指城市區域,地方政府會訂定不同的地方稅率,但依法不會超過0.3%,換言之通常稅額為不動產(土地+房產)估價*0.3%

✦ 修繕積立金

修繕積立金類似其他國家的「公共基金」,通常由大樓的管理委員會每月向房屋擁有者收取。修繕積立金作為管理委員會的重要營運資金,也經常使用在大樓整體或大型營建項目的花費使用,例如清洗整修大樓外牆、外壁磁磚補強等工程項目,在購買新建案時通常會先預收一筆修繕積立金,老建築的修繕積立金則會因為破舊程度以及需要維持外觀與安全性而有所上升。

✦ 管理費(共益費)

一般日本社區的基本管理費包含社區雇用的物業管理(管理員、清潔工、景觀美化、電梯維護或相關服務)、公共設施水電費等,費用依照社區型態與奢華程度有所不同。

✦ 房租-所得稅

如果購買日本房地產的用途是作為出租使用,房東必須為每年的房租收入依法申報所得稅,日本所得稅具有預扣制度,被稱為【源泉徵收】,實際的所得費用扣除相關費用(例如維修費、管理費、火災保險費等) 計算後,如果不足基本門檻的20萬日圓,房東基本上無須資賦相關所得稅。另外如果租客對象是法人的話,會先被預扣20.42%的租金作為源泉徵收,最後依照年度申報的實際稅務費用進行退稅或追繳。日本國稅廳提供所得稅試算:點我前往請注意, 在租客是法人或非作居住同用途的情況下, 20.42%的租金將會先被扣除作為源泉徵收交給稅務署。其中一部分或全部稅款可以透過年度申報退回。

✦ 物業管理(房屋代管費)

如果你在當地沒有人替你打理日本的不動產,也已透過專業的物業管理業者協助包含與租客的溝通、打掃、維護以及協助申報稅金等各式服務,在日本進行物業管理的業者形形色色,建議不要被語言隔閡,尋找有品牌和實際成果的業者較為安全,否則面對許多難以處理的房產瑣事,作為海外房東的時間與金錢成本非常高。一般來說在日本當地的物業管理的相關收費大約是每月租金的5%加少許的消費稅,實際收費會依照各公司的服務項目與專業度不同而有所差異。

▶ 轉出不動產時要繳的相關稅目

✦ 仲介手数料 / 司法書士手数料

仲介手續費與司法書士手續費和購買不動產時一樣,建議大家一定要透過合法合格的仲介公司來進行房產買賣。

✦登錄免許稅 / 印紙代

登錄免許稅及印紙代的相關費用與稅務級距可以參考購買日本房產時的前述資料。

✦ 讓渡所得稅

如果成功出售日本房產有所收益,就必須繳納所得稅,再出售日本房地產時須繳納相關的所得稅,這部分的讓渡所得稅不僅僅依照一般的所得稅率進行計算,也會根據持有房產的時間來制定不同稅率,不同的是非居住在日本的海外房產擁有者毋須再就同樣的收入繳納住民稅。持有房產5年內:稅率為30.63%
持有房產5年至10年:稅率為15.315%
持有房產10年以上:價格為6千萬日圓以下的房產稅率為10.21%;價格為6千萬日圓以上的房產稅率為15.315%。*如果是自用住宅可擁有3,000萬日圓的「特別讓渡所得免稅額」。

Kishida says Japan looking to ease entry restrictions on foreign workers and students

Japan's government is planning to reduce the quarantine period from 10 to 3 days for most vaccinated people arriving in the country for business purposes.Sources say the new rules will come into effect as early as Monday next week.The government had previously required overseas arrivals to self-quarantine for 14 days as part of efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus.In October, the period was reduced to 10 days for people who had been inoculated with the Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca vaccines approved by the government.Under the new rules, business people arriving in Japan will be asked to self-quarantine for 3 days.On day four onwards, they will be allowed to use public transportation and dine out, once they test negative for the virus. But the companies they are doing business with will need to be keep track of them.The officials plan to allow foreign students to enter Japan for their education as long as their schools keep records of their whereabouts.The government also plans to increase its cap on international arrivals from the current 3,500 visitors a day to 5,000, starting late this month.

Travel agencies eye discounts for those vaccinated for COVID-19

Travel agencies in Japan are offering special packages catering to consumers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.The struggling tourism industry sees a silver lining in the vaccination program against the novel coronavirus as it expects the program to inspire more people not only to get jabs but also to go on trips.The Japan Travel and Tourism Association in June released an emergency proposal that urged acceleration of vaccinations and the adoption of COVID-19 “passports” to confirm vaccinations.The statement argued that “promoting trips taking advantage of inoculation certificates and other measures will lead to expanded exchanges between people.”Leading tourist agent Club Tourism International Inc. is considering a new tour intended specially for inoculated individuals that aims to allow participants to feel safe while traveling, which it would accept reservations for by the end of August at the earliest.As the majority of people who have been vaccinated to date are elderly, the ratio of senior citizens against the total joining tours is about 10 percent more than usual, leading travel firms to prepare packages to match the trend.A Club Tourism representative said the company hopes the special tours “will stimulate consumers’ desire for traveling.” Nippon Hotel Co., an East Japan Railway Co. group company, is staging a campaign targeting people who have been inoculated against COVID-19.Tourists who stay and dine in 34 accommodation facilities from four Nippon Hotel brands through the end of September can receive hotel discount tickets valued from 500 yen ($4.50) to 3,000 yen.To apply for the campaign, customers must show their vaccination certificates.“We expect our endeavor will encourage more people to get vaccinated,” said a Nippon Hotel representative. “We also anticipate the campaign will offer new value so tourists will choose our hotels over other lodging facilities.”Prince Hotels Inc., a Seibu Holdings Inc. affiliate, released a new package on July 2 in which vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals can stay together after taking a free polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.The company sends PCR test kits to the homes of customers who book hotels covered under the program, who get their test results before their stays.“We'd like people, including those who couldn't see each other for an entire year, to make family and other trips together,” a Prince Hotels representative said. For those who are planning to travel overseas, local governments will start accepting applications from July 26 for COVID-19 "vaccine passports" that certify holders have been inoculated against the virus.

Sustainable Travel in Japan

Sustainable travel needn’t involve camping under the stars or biking your way around the country. By supporting local businesses and respecting the environment and local culture, travelling responsibly is easy. two men hold up bowls of strawberriesWWOOFing is a way to connect with the local communityJapan’s tourism industry is experiencing something of a boom, with the number of travellers leaping from around 8 million in 2012 to 31 million in 2018. This has sparked concern among locals about the impact of tourism, but has also motivated companies to develop opportunities for green tourism across the country, making it easier than ever to travel sustainably. A simple way to reduce your carbon footprint is to take the train rather than taking domestic flights. With arguably the best rail network in the world, there’s no better country to explore by train than Japan. The shinkansen makes it quick and easy to get to far-flung places and an expansive regional network can get you to rural locations. A JR Pass makes train travel within Japan an affordable option, too.  

Green eating

Sustainable food is an area where Japan really shines. Seasonal eating is a big part of the culture, and traditional restaurants tend to locally source as many ingredients as possible. Additionally, vegan and vegetarian food are becoming increasingly popular in Japan’s major cities. Though it’s still not exactly mainstream, with a little research you can find restaurants that serve plant-based meals. A group of people eat simple food as the sun setsBy WWOOFing, you'll be offered free meals and accommodation in exchange for helping your hosts

Eco-friendly stays

To get well and truly off the tourist trail, try WWOOFing. In exchange for food and a place to stay, you help your host with anything from organic farming, restoring traditional homes or running an environmental center. Not only do you give something back, but you get to make meaningful connections with the local community too. For sustainable living inspiration, visit Kamikatsu in Tokushima. This pretty town, surrounded by mountains and rice paddies, has made headlines by becoming practically zero-waste. Locals go to admirable lengths to avoid incinerating waste, separating their trash into 34 categories. They also leave clothes and household items they no longer need at an exchange, called a “kurukuru” in the town, so others can pick up those items for free. Visitors to the town are invited to come and take goods, too. A wooden and glass building surrounded by mountains and natureRise & Win brewery takes the reduce. reuse, recycle ethos to the next levelAnother kurukuru shop in the town sells upcycled items, such as clothes and bags, made from unwanted clothes and other textiles. Even the town’s brewery, Rise & Win, follows the reduce, reuse, recycle mantra. They use yuzu peel that would otherwise be thrown away to flavor craft beer and reuse the grain to make granola. Additionally, all the bottles used are returnable. Its very cool-looking building is made from recycled materials and won the WAN (World Architecture News) Sustainable Buildings Award in 2016. If you can’t get to Kamikatsu, get a feel for the brewery at its Tokyo-based taproom, instead. Fabric beads wrapped around a piece of coralI Was A Kimono make pretty jewellery from discarded traditional clothing

Sustainable souvenirs

One of the easiest ways you can support local businesses is to shop for local produce when buying souvenirs. Support local artisans by buying their arts and crafts, or local farmers by purchasing jams and sauces. A man sitting down wearing a blue shirt and a beige bagWaste items are reworked into fashionable pieces by Japanese brand, ModecoFor something a little more unusual, check out upcycling brands like Modeco which take waste materials and turn them into beautiful stationery, clothes and accessories. For something really special try I Was A Kimono, an online store that gives new life to old kimono, reworking the fabric into handcrafted accessories and other decorative items.With a little research, it’s easy to turn your holiday to Japan into a sustainable one.

Travel to Japan during Covid-19: What you need to know before you go

CNN staff • Updated 10th July 2021
Japan offers a heady mix of the cutting edge and deeply traditional
Editor's Note — Coronavirus cases remain high across the globe. Health officials caution that travel increases your chances of getting and spreading the virus.
Staying home is the best way to stem transmission. Below is information on what to know if you still plan to travel, last updated on July 8.
(CNN) — If you're planning to travel to Japan, here's what you'll need to know and expect if you want to visit during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The basics

Japan was lauded for containing the virus during the first wave but has since seen a surge in cases, with a major spike in November and December 2020.
Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced on February 9 that all foreign nationals would be barred from entering the country, but did not specify a start date
or give details about how this would be implemented. The Tokyo Olympics are still scheduled to take place in July despite protests.
Although all foreign nationals have been barred from attending the Olympics in summer 2021 and are mostly unable to enter the country, Japanese authorities
announced that they are considering testing any foreigner entering the country for the newer coronavirus variants.
The upcoming Olympic Games have increased pressure on authorities to keep the pandemic under control.
Tokyo and Okinawa will be under a state of emergency until August 11, which covers the entire duration of the Games.
Three of the prefectures bordering Tokyo -- Chiba, Kanagawa and Saitama -- will also remain under a semi-state of emergency during this period.
Olympic organizers have agreed to hold events without spectators.

What's on offer

A heady mix of the cutting edge and deeply traditional, Japan remains a major draw for travelers from all over the globe. Whether participating in a traditional
tea ceremony in Kyoto, scouring Tokyo's Akihabara district for tech bargains or soaking in a hot onsen in the forests of Tohoku, this is a country that leaves its
mark on all who visit.

Who can go

Japan has some of the most stringent travel restrictions in the world, with 152 countries on its prohibited list.
Visitors from Australia, Brunei, China (including Hong Kong and Macau), New Zealand, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam may enter the country,
although those traveling from China and South Korea can only arrive into the country via Tokyo Narita airport. Additionally, those traveling for study,
work or to join family (subject to visa requirements) may enter. That said, there are many exceptions and the rules change constantly. Consult MOFA for the latest information.
Prime Minister Suga announced on January 14 that the borders would close to all foreign nationals, although there were no specifics on beginning and ending dates.
He also did not specify whether this would apply to foreign citizens with Japanese residency.
On May 24, the US State Department issued a travel warning against its citizens visiting Japan. It was a Level 4 warning, the highest on the scale.
It has since been dropped to a "Level 3: Reconsider Travel."

What are the restrictions?

Travelers from permitted destinations must undertake a 14-day quarantine, although it is possible to request a PCR test on arrival. A negative result allows you to finish quarantine.
Those traveling under Japan's revised business travel rules will need to provide proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure, signed and stamped by the laboratory where it was taken. While they will not need to self-isolate, they will need to provide details of their movements for the following two weeks and not use public transport.

What's the Covid situation?

After low infection rates in the first wave, Japan has seen a sharp increase in cases, which have steadily increased since a state of emergency was lifted in March. On June 14, the country marked a total of 936 cases -- the first time the national number had fallen below 1,000 new cases since March. The government's efforts to speed up vaccinations has improved significantly, with one million jabs per day the week of June 22.
As of July 8, Japan had reported roughly 809,909 confirmed cases of the virus and 14,834 deaths.
The vaccine rollout has been slow compared with others in Asia because of a shortage of medical professionals and a lack of syringes.
To boost vaccine numbers ahead of the Olympics, the Japanese government has rolled out some workplace vaccination programs and recruited dentists,
retired doctors and others in the medical field to assist with giving them out.
The Health Ministry formally approved two Covid-19 vaccines (Moderna and AstraZeneca) on May 21. Both are approved for anyone 18 and older.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato confirmed to local media that his team is exploring options for "vaccine passports." Business travelers would be prioritized for these at first.

Daily reported Covid-19 cases

What can visitors expect?

While much of Japan remains open for business, cities are far quieter than usual and the government has the right to request the closure of businesses in areas of high transmission.
Masks must be worn in public.
