Inheritance tax/gift tax will not be imposed on properties located outside Japan with respect to inheritance/gifts involving foreign people living or having lived temporarily in Japan under certain conditions in order to encourage foreign people to live and work in Japan. On the other hand, certain cases have been added to those where inheritance tax/gift tax is imposed on all properties in order to deter tax saving by Japanese wealthy people through relocating outside Japan.
