Q: What kind of system is the "electronic ledger storage system"?

A: The electronic ledger storage system refers to "books" and "receipts, invoices, financial statements, etc. (national tax documents)" that need to be preserved under tax law.

This refers to the system for storing electronic data rather than paper, and is divided into three systems.

  •  Storage of electronic ledgers [only for those who wish]

  •  Scanner storage [only for those who wish]

  •  Electronic transaction data storage [Corporations and individual business operators need to take action]

Persons who are required to preserve books and documents regarding self-assessed income tax and corporate tax must keep order forms, contracts, invoices, receipts, etc.

When electronic data equivalent to estimates, invoices, etc. is exchanged, the electronic data (electronic transaction data)must be saved.
