Tokyo Tax Authority Demands Sony Pony up another $244 in Taxes
Categories: Import/Export Cases
Fresh off its UK Import Duties Loss, the Tokyo Regional Tax Bureau rules that Sony owes an additional 27.9 billion yen (over $244 million) in additional taxes for 74.4 billion yen (about $650 million) in unreported income. The taxes stem from Japan’s “transfer price tax system” which is designed to prevent inter-company transactions between domestic and international affiliates at lower than market prices.
