Purpose of Year-End Tax Adjustment (YETA)


YETA refers to the tax adjustment process culminating in payment of your Japan National Income Tax Liability. The adjustment calculates the difference of the total salary/bonus tax withheld for the current year and the actual tax liability calculated at the end of the same year.



Exemption from YETA Process


Employees with a gross taxable salary income exceeding \20M must file a 2017 Tax Return (Final tax return/ Kakutei shinkoku) by themselves during the filing period of February 16 - March 15, 2018.

In this instance the 2017 tax liability is unable to be adjusted through the YETA process. 

Note:  All employees, including those with a gross taxable salary income exceeding \20,000,000 , must submit “2017 & 2018 Declaration Form for Tax Exemption” on Document Checklist above.
