Consumption Tax (VAT) Increase in Japan

2019/9/6

Due to the consumption tax (VAT) increase as of October 1, 2019, the new tax rate will be applied to Montbell products as below. We appreciate your kind understanding.

The new tax rate will come into effect from the shipment on October 1, 2019.

Shipment until September 30, 2019 … Tax rate 8%
Shipment from October 1, 2019 … Tax rate 10%

Please note that when you place an order after 5 pm, September 29, 2019, the shipment will be after October 1, 2019 due to our system.

If the product status is "Back order"/"May be available at a retail location," or if any additional confirmation on your order is needed, the shipping date may become after October 1, even when the order is placed before 5 pm, September 29. The new tax rate will automatically be applied to any shipment after October 1, regardless of the order date or the amount stated on the order confirmation.

When paid by member's points, the additional tax amount will be deducted from the points. When your points are not sufficient for the payment, it will be charged cash on delivery. As for ordering by fax or post, please contact Montbell POST.
