Posted in: Japan eyes cashless tax refunds to stem illicit resale by tourists See in context

Example: retailer operating in japan (foreign or Japanese), with a 'visiting' friend/relative who buys 1MJPY of products tax free inside Japan, possibly/probably with money from the retailer, doesn't pay 100kJPY consumption tax, then transfers that product to the retailer who can then resell normally, but in the meantime they split the refund and pocket 50kJPY each.

Pretty sure it's something like this rather than 5,000JPY purchases that is the target.
