Since consumption occurs on the premise of the existence of income, by taxing consumption, income that cannot be fully grasped by income tax etc. will be indirectly taxed. However, because some income is used for savings, the amount of income and the amount of consumption do not always match, and consumersPropensity to consumeAffects the actual consumption tax burden.

General consumption tax

General consumption tax is further classified as follows[11].

  • Single-step taxation
    • Sales tax(English edition --For example, in retail sales tax, only the retailer to the final consumer is obliged to collect and collect.
  • Multi-step taxation

In the old Japanese economicsGeneral sales tax(General sales tax; GST) Is the model of the tax system.There are two types of general sales tax: single-stage taxation, which is taxed at one stage of manufacturing, wholesale, and retail, and multi-stage taxation, which is taxed at two or more stages.

If multi-stage taxation is adopted, a "pyramid effect" will occur in which the tax burden is passed on to the next stage, and by taxing different products in the same way, there will be a disparity in the tax burden on the products. .. In order to solve these problems, a method has been devised in which the taxpayer pays the consumption tax on the difference instead of the consumption tax on the sales. This is today's general consumption tax (VAT). General consumption tax can be divided into income-type value-added tax and consumption-type value-added tax according to the method of calculating value-added tax. In the former case, only the depreciation amount is allowed for the deduction of capital goods at the time of purchase calculation, but in the latter case, the entire amount of capital goods is deductible and only the consumption portion is taxable.

Although the consumption tax and the general consumption tax are similar in appearance, the general consumption tax also includes alternative elements derived from criticisms of direct taxes such as income tax and corporate tax levied on income.incomeIn the case of taxing taxpayers, it is costly for the government to know whether the taxpayer declares honest income and pays it correctly.fairThere are also many problems in terms of gender and levelness. People who are critical of direct tax demand a replacement by general consumption tax from the idea that "more accurate income can be grasped through spending on consumption."

General consumption tax was first introduced1954/France, but its predecessor1917/It is the "payment tax (la taxe sur les paiements)" introduced in. afterwards,1920/"Sales tax (la taxe sur le chiffre d'affaires)",1936/The name was changed to "la taxe à la production" and it became the current form. afterwards,1967/ToCouncil of the European UnionIn Japan, it was confirmed that the tax system unification movement among member countries was promoted centering on the general consumption tax based on the consumption-type value-added tax similar to France, and based on this policy.1968/ToWest GermanyChanged general sales tax to general consumption tax.

With this as a trigger1969/To Netherlands,1970/ToLuxembourg,1971/ToBelgium,1973/ToUnited Kingdom-ItalyAnd the conversion to general consumption tax has progressed among the member countries.Aiming to introduce it in Japan at the time of the Masayoshi Ohira Cabinet, 10 to 20 years after the introduction of other developed countries, after discussions, the VAT type consumption tax, which is a uniform product tax rate from sales tax with different tax amount for each product, was introduced in 1989. It will be introduced by the Takeshita Noboru Cabinet[11]..Even after that, compared to other countries, "The reason why Japan cannot grow due to deflation is the consumption tax."[13], "" Dangerous impact "of 10% consumption tax ... Will Japan go to deflation mode again?"[14], "Demand tax hike drastically reduces demand ... Concerned" deflationary spiral ""[15]Opposition to the consumption tax is deep-rooted.

Individual consumption tax

Individual consumption tax(Selected excise duties) is the taxation of a particular or group of goods or services.[12]..The goods and services subject to taxation are specific and the tax rates are not unified.The tax rate is quantity, weight, strength, octane number,Alcohol degreeEtc. are used as a standard[12].

There are three types of taxable items that can be taxed by this method. They are specific based on the "luxury goods taxation" that is levied on luxury goods such as liquor and cigarettes, and the principle of benefit and beneficiary burden such as gasoline. "Purpose tax" on goods and services related to public services, "luxury goods, entertainment goods, service taxation" for other things, and luxury goods used in daily life but daily life It is levied on products that are not essential items. Once existed in JapanExcise taxMany of them are included in this.

Later, during the Restoration, it was the cause of the conflict between the royal power and the parliament.Purveyance rightAn agreement was reached to allow half of the domestic consumption tax as a donation for the life of the king instead of returning the king's power. After that, the domestic consumption tax was raised several times because of financial difficulties.1733/At that time (first generation)prime ministerRobert WalpoleHas sought to further raise the domestic consumption tax in return for the reduction and abolition of land taxes and the reduction of tariffs.

On the other hand, political opponentsViscount BolingbruckWalpole withdrew the proposal because he was bitten and the people were in a riot due to their hardships. This is called an "excise crisis".Industrial revolutionAfter that, the policy of reducing the domestic consumption tax and passing it on to tariffs was adopted for industrial development.FranceThen.Jean-Baptiste ColbertWas hung along with the salt monopoly introduced byGavel(Gabelle) and aides derived from beverage tax are known,Absolutist periodSupported France's finances.GermanyHowever, although it was actively introduced after the latter half of the 17th century, it caused instability of people's lives and extreme dependence on individual consumption tax of national finance due to too high rate.Ferdinand LassalleReceived severe criticism from.

In addition, since the tax office needs to know the income, expenditure, and savings information of all residents, it can be said that it is difficult to implement due to the complexity of clerical work.

The United States of America

In the United States, there is no federal VAT tax, but there is a sales tax that is not levied on inter-dealer transactions in each state, but only on the final consumer. Five of the 50 states are not subject to state-by-state sales tax. There is no State Sales Taxア ラ ス カ 州-Delaware-Montana-New Hampshire-OregonIs[33].

United States CongressSo for decades there has been debate about the introduction of VAT,Corporate tax-income taxIndirect taxes such as consumption tax and value-added tax cannot be considered to be superior to direct taxes represented by, so adoption has been postponed nationwide (direct ratio in US national tax). Is 9 to 1)[34].

Especially in the case of VAT, many things that have been the focus of discussions, such as the fact that refunds are given to exports and imports are taxed, and that they are easily combined with corporate tax reductions, remain in US official documents. Are[34].

Since 1994, the ratio of GDP has turned positive.Reduced tax rateWithout introducing[Annotation 3]Since all consumption tax rates are uniform, it has the widest tax base in the world and is the most neutral value-added tax for the economy, so it is the best in the world.96.4% OfC efficiency[Annotation 4]Boasts. In 1999, the New Zealand government confirmed its policy of expanding the tax base and a single and fixed rate of consumption tax in order to obtain stable tax revenue at the lowest cost. The introduction of a 1986% consumption tax without a reduced tax rate in 10 did not cause public opposition like Japan. As a background, in New Zealand, it is more efficient for retailers to reduce the burden on government offices by making the social security system a medium-burden welfare system and redistributing the response to low-income earners from the tax revenue from the consumption tax. This is because the people accepted the government's policy. In 2006, the ratio of value-added tax revenue to total tax revenue was 24.4%.[18][11].


Aiming to establish a broader and more stable tax base in response to increasing demand for the public sector for the construction of a welfare state in 1967Danish Social Democratic PartyIntroduced at 10%. After being raised to the 1970% level in the 20.25s, it has been 1992% since 25. As for the reduced tax rate, it is difficult to distinguish the items to which the reduced tax rate is applied, such as the financial burden of revenue reduction, efficiency of collection, and the distinction of items to which the reduced tax rate is applied. It was not introduced because it was more efficient to redistribute. The only exceptional reduced tax rate in DenmarkNewspaper onlyIs. In 2006, the ratio of personal income tax burden to total tax revenue stands out at 51.3%, and the ratio of value-added tax is 21.3%.This is because generous social security is basically covered by more than 7% of the national income tax and consumption tax.With a reduced tax rate of 6% in the same Scandinavia, it has a C efficiency of 25, which exceeds Sweden's 47.3, which is a 51.6% sales tax...The reason why Sweden's VAT is less efficient than Denmark is Reduced tax rates and the development of e-commerce and cross-border tax avoidance in neighboring countries with low tax rates, which are likely to occur in the retail and service industries that serve consumersThere is[11][18].


Italy was introduced in 1973 at 12%. In 1997, the tax was raised to 20%.European crisisDue to the recession, social security spending increased and the budget deficit increased. for that reason. Italy in September 2011Silvio BerlusconiThe administration raised the value-added tax (VAT) rate from 20% to 1%, but the amount of tax received decreased, and the amount collected for the year to the end of April fell to the lowest level since 4. It was suggested that "it is much better to reduce spending." The tax was raised to 1% in 2006. The 2013 Budget Stabilization Bill stipulated a tax increase from January 22 to 2016%, but the 2017 Budget Law postponed the tax increase period and plans to raise it in January 1.There may be two reduced tax rates, 24% and 2017%.C efficiency is 38.2%Is[11][18][35].

People's Republic of China

People's Republic of ChinaInValue-added tax(VAT) is called VAT.VAT was introduced in 1984 at 17%.Currently, different tax rates are applied to taxpayers and commodities (for example, tax exemption for agricultural products and self-sold second-hand goods, 6% for modern service taxpayers, 9% for books and gas, general products. 13%).In China, almost all prices are tax-included.VAT accounts for more than 60% of total tax revenue.

Japan's VAT is the third lowest among OECD countries and is the OECD average19%It's only half of. C efficiency is 65.3.[11][37].. Why Japan's VAT rate is below the OECD averageKijimotoIs recommended by Shaup, the world's first value-added tax introduced in France spreads around the world, and even if the Liberal Democratic Party is the ruling party, every time it aims to introduce the general consumption tax and raise the tax rate, successive administrations continued to lose the election. The air that the consumption tax cannot be dealt with unless prepared has become dominant in the political world (inside the Liberal Democratic Party). "[38].

It has been pointed out that the reason why Europe is okay at the 8% level compared to Japan, which is affected by the economy by raising the VAT to 20%, is that the VAT was originally higher than Japan since the 1970s.In Japan's low VAT, the increase of 3% is equivalent to 5% of the 6% before the increase, while in the UK, the 2011% increase from 11% to 4% on November 17.5, 20 The increase was only 2.5% of the conventional tax rate, so it did not cause a recession.Spain has raised VAT 14% from 16 to 2010% in two stages over a three-year period.Italy also went through a two-step process, raising taxes from 2% to 3% in 21.In the UK when VAT doubled from 2% to 2011% in 20RecessionIs inviting.Immediately after 20, when the budget deficit of Britain raised its tax to 2011%, a British reporter said that Japan's VAT had only been raised from 3% to 5% in the past, and the Japanese at that time who were so angry could not understand. Stated.Budget deficit(en: fiscal deficit)Increase VAT and increase tax revenueThat andPublic spendingReducing COXNUMX EmissionsThingNeed bothPointed out[39][40][41].

after that,2014/Japan's consumption tax rate was raised from 4% to 1% on April 5st[Annotation 5]. Also,2019/At the same time as the consumption tax rate was raised from 10% to 8% in October, multiple tax rates (Reduced tax rate) Was introduced.

In FY2020, consumption tax is 21.0 trillion yen, income tax is 19.2 trillion yen, corporate tax is 11.2 trillion yen, and consumption tax is the largest revenue in terms of revenue tax and stamp revenue.[42]..Public debt, which is the revenue from the issuance of government bonds, has grown to 2020 trillion yen in the initial budget for 90.2, and the interest payment cost of government bonds alone has reached 9 trillion yen.
