Product tax code is to set consumption tax rate applied to your products. Product tax rate can be set (1) at account level, and (2) at product (SKU) level. This help page explains about product tax rate at product (SKU) level. For details on product tax code at account level, please visit our help page: Consumption Tax Settings
A_GEN_STANDARD (Normal tax rate), A_GEN_NOTAX (Tax exempt), A_GEN_REDUCED (Reduced tax rate)
* For products that a product level product tax code is not set, an account level product tax code set by sellers will be automatically applied. A default setting value for an account level product tax code is A_GEN_STANDARD (Normal tax rate).
* In Japan, Tax Reform will take effect on October 1, 2019 and reduced tax rate system will be introduced. Please refer to the table below for tax rate and applicable tax rate before and after October 1, 2019 (JST).
