According to sources cited by Nikkei on Monday, Tokyo is imposing Apple Inc.’s Japan division 13 billion yen ($97.82 million) in extra taxes for massive sales of iPhones as well as other Apple products to international tourists who’ve been accidentally excluded from the consumption tax.


The paper reported that many Apple stores have detected large-scale purchases of iPhones performed by overseas customers. At least one transaction involved a person acquiring hundreds of smartphones all at once, and the outlet failing to tax at least one suspected reseller.


The 10 per cent sales tax is dropped for visitors to Japan who’s been visiting for less than six months, however, items purchased to resell them are not excused.

Apple Japan is believed to have filed an amended tax return

According to Nikkei, Apple Japan is reported to have presented a revised tax filing.


The firm merely stated in an email saying tax-exempt sales were not now available at its outlets in reply to a Reuters inquiry for clarification. Its local tax department for Tokyo respond to a request.
