Regarding the new Japanese consumption tax
As some of you may already know, the Japanese Government will be raising the consumption tax from 8% to 10% this coming October. As Cafetalk is headquartered in Japan, this tax rate will also be reflected on new Point purchases effective October 1, 2019 (Japan Time).
Furthermore, due to a legal requirement to separately manage Points which were bought at 8% and 10% respectively, purchasing new points will no longer affect the validity of your previous account balance. That is, each set of purchased Points will carry its own valid-to date.
