Will I be charged consumption tax?

Please note that items purchased from Yahoo! Japan Auction that are purchased through Buyee usually do not incur consumption tax.
However, consumption tax may be charged to items purchased on some online stores that are selling items on Yahoo! Japan Auction. In these cases, you will be charged a consumption tax of 10% of the item's winning price of the highest bid after completing a successful bid. Since items sold by the proxy purchase service sites usually are displayed including the price with tax, in most cases there will be no charge extra consumption tax charged separately from the final item price. However, depending on the situation, we may ask you to pay for the consumption tax separately.
