外国数字支付商或无法享受日本无现金支付折扣计划

明年10月起,日本消费税将上调2个百分点,达到10%。

为推广移动化无现金支付,日本政府宣布推出补贴奖励计划。凡是通过智能手机、信用卡或其他非现金方式进行付款的消费者,可以在限定时间内获得最高相当于购买额5%的积分奖励,奖励可用于抵扣未来购买金额。

不过,汽车等享受其他税收减免政策的大件商品并不在本次折扣奖励计划内。

而便利店等大型特许经营连锁店则会提供大约2%的积分奖励,帮助消费者应对消费税上调对物价的影响。

值得注意的是,日本政府已经表示,本次计划只面向主要在日本市场进行运营的公司。

也就是说,包括阿里巴巴旗下支付宝在内的多家外国数字支付服务商将不会被列入本次折扣奖励计划。

此外,本次奖励计划主要面向的也是日本居民,因为他们承担了主要的消费税上调负担。而通常来说,外国游客的消费在超过特定金额后都可以享受消费税豁免优惠政策。

 

Japan intends to exclude foreign digital payment services such as Alibaba Group Holding's Alipay from a rebate program for cashless purchases, a measure designed to cushion the blow from a consumption tax hike coming next October.

Visitors from overseas also will be unable to take advantage of the government-subsidized rewards program, which is aimed at promoting the spread of cashless payments as well.

Consumers who pay by smartphone, credit card or other cashless means can receive reward points worth up to 5% of their purchase value for a limited time, redeemable on future purchases, once the consumption tax is raised by 2 percentage points to 10%.

Payment operators such as credit card companies will need to cap their fees for small and midsize stores at 3.25% in order to receive subsidies for the customer rewards program, regardless of payment method. The program will be limited to companies working mainly in Japan, leaving out services like Alipay, a popular option in Alibaba's native China.

Eligibility generally will be limited to Japanese residents, as they bear the burden of the consumption tax. Foreign visitors are exempt from consumption taxes on purchases above a certain price.

Points will be unavailable for some large goods slated for separate tax breaks, such as cars. Major franchise chains like convenience stores will offer 2% reward points, in effect refunding the value of the newly added consumption tax.

The subsidies are geared to help small retailers. Besides shouldering roughly one-third of their fees to payment operators, the government also will subsidize the cost of cashless payment devices for such shops.
