Certificate of Withholding Tax
A Certificate of Withholding Tax is a form issued by your company recording the details of how much you have earned during the year, and how much tax you have paid. It will be issued by your company around the end of the year. Companies are obliged to issue Certificates of Withholding Tax, so if you are not issued one please submit a Notification of Issue of Certificate of Withholding Tax to the Tax Office. Companies are not obliged to issue Certificates of Withholding Tax to non-residents, however. For details, please contact the Tax Consulting Office of the Nagoya Regional Taxation Bureau (English: 052-971-2059; Japanese: 0570-002007).
