The Environment Surrounding the Market of Large-sized Companies

Under the FY2020 Tax Reform Outline (the Liberal Democratic Party, Komeito) and the Law for Partial Revisions to the Income Tax Act, etc. (Law No. 8 of 2020), the current consolidated taxation system was revised from the business year beginning April 1, 2022, and switched to a group tax sharing system. Based on these revisions, the Accounting Standards Board of Japan has indicated that the Practical Solution on the Accounting and Disclosure Under the Group Tax Sharing System (Practical Solution No. 42) will be applied from the business year beginning April 1, 2022. In addition, the FY2021 Tax Reform Outline (the Liberal Democratic Party, Komeito), introduced the Revised Electronic Books Maintenance Act, easing requirements for the retention of electronic books, and mandating the electronic retention of electromagnetic transaction data. This is expected to result in increasing needs for storing accounting evidence in electronic form and companies are further required to cope with such series of law amendments and system reforms.
In addition, companies expanding internationally as part of their group’s growth strategy are facing pressing needs to strengthen the system for the management of their group including overseas subsidiaries, the issues of which include ensuring appropriateness, accuracy and promptness of overseas subsidiaries’ financial information, and controlling the risk of potential fraud.
