We do not conduct transactions or contracts that transfer income between countries to take advantage of differences between different countries’ tax laws or loopholes in international tax systems. Furthermore, we allocate taxable income in a manner that is consistent with the value generated through business activities in each country.
We do not use both tax structure and tax haven that unfairly reduces our tax burden
by taking advantage of differences between tax laws and tax treaties, loopholes, special tax treatment, or other flaws. We faithfully fulfill our duties to pay taxes on international transactions through a normal tax structure.
