The EBC Tax Committee aims to eliminate the discrepancies in the interpretation of common tax concepts between European and Japanese tax laws, deviations in the progress of tax treaty re-negotiations between Japan and European countries, inconsistent interpretation of OECD-based transfer pricing policies, and the lack of clarity in the rules pertaining to capital gains from cross-border mergers and to minimize the impact of Japan's inheritance tax rules on foreigners in Japan.

he EBC Legal Services Committee
legal services
Foreign lawyers in Japan play a crucial role in the integration of both economies by interfacing between European and Japanese firms on cross-border investment, in advising financial institutions investing or lending abroad, and in assisting Japanese companies wishing to access the European capital markets. The committee aims to overcome restrictions on lawyers in exercising their profession, as legal qualifications are currently not recognised across jurisdictions and/or their activities are circumscribed by local rules.

The Financial Reporting Committee aims to promote the convergence of Japanese accounting standards with international standards through limiting or reducing reconciling items between IFRS/US GAAP group reporting and JGAAP statutory reporting. In correspondence with the standard setters and other relevant bodies, the committee seeks clarification on grey areas or the implications of new standards from a JGAAP, IFRS, or US GAAP perspective, and also aims to provide input to the JIFRS standard setting process.
