Japan Electronic Bookkeeping Act

Japan Localization SuiteApp version 2023.2.5 provides features for complying with requirements of the Electronic Bookkeeping Act for storing and managing electronic transaction documents.

The new Electronic Transaction Data subtab on transaction records has fields where you can specify details of electronic documents related to the parent transaction. To view the subtab on transaction records, the role that will use it must first have the right permissions. You must grant the role permission levels for Custom Record to edit Electronic Transaction Data and for List to create Documents and Files.

Before specifying electronic transaction documents, you must store them first in the File Cabinet. Then, on the transaction you must specify the following in corresponding fields on the Electronic Transaction Data subtab:

  • document file name

  • document type

  • transaction date

  • transaction amount

  • transaction entity

  • whether the document was sent or received

After you enter field values and save the transaction, an Electronic Transaction Data custom record will be created with the details you specified. This custom record associates or links the electronic document to its parent transaction. Electronic Transaction Data custom records lets you store, retrieve, and manage electronic documents in a structured way. Also, you can search for records by year using a new saved search that the SuiteApp provides.


Your administrator or any role with permission must not edit or delete an electronic document in the File Cabinet that is already specified in an Electronic Transaction Data custom record. This will cause an error when that record or the parent transaction is edited.

For more information, see Support for Electronic Bookkeeping Act.

Japan Financial Statements Enhancements

Japan Financial Statements SuiteApp version 5.0.0 will add the following new financial statements:

  • Japan Comparative Balance Sheet

The generated comparative balance sheet indicates the Year-over-year Ratio (YoY %) of financial data in the specified period and previous year.

    For more information, see Japan Comparative Balance Sheet (Beta).

  • Japan Comparative Income Statement

    This report displays a summary of your company’s or subsidiary’s income, expenses, and net income in a specified period and in the previous year for comparison. The Comparative Income Statement is available from Reports > Financial > Japan Comp. Income Statement. To generate the report, select the Subsidiary, Income Statement Template, a period in the Financial Year, From and To fields, and then click Refresh. The generated income statement also indicates the Year-over-year Ratio (YoY %) of financial data in the specified period and previous year.

    For more information, see Japan Comparative Income Statement (Beta).

  • Japan Trial Balance New

    This new implementation is a combination of the Comparative Balance Sheet and Comparative Income Statement. The report displays the Beginning Balance, Debit, Credit, Ending Balance, and Ratio.

    You can overwrite the tax amount on purchase transactions or journal entries even after deductible tax has been calculated. You should only do this if the tax and amount values on the bill generated by NetSuite are different from those on the bill received from your vendor.

    When you edit a transaction or bill to enter new values for tax and amount, a message is displayed for you to confirm the recalculation of deductible tax:

    • If you select OK, NetSuite will recalculate deductible tax using the new values.

    • If you select Cancel, NetSuite will overwrite the previous values but will not recalculate deductible tax.

  • Set Values for Qualified Invoice Issuer and Tax Registration Number Using CSV Import

    You can use CSV import to set or update values for the Qualified Invoice Issuer and Tax Registration Number fields on vendor records.

    For more information, see Specifying Qualified Invoice Issuer or Vendor Tax Exemption.

  • Enhanced Saved Search for Including Credit Memo Line Items in the Invoice Summary

    This version of the SuiteApp provides an improved invoice summary transaction saved search for including the correct credit memo line items in the invoice summary.
