Chikara Okada, Deloitte Japan, is the leader of the indirect tax practice in Tokyo. He has 18 years of experience in customs duty, Japanese consumption tax and other excise taxes. Before joining Deloitte Japan, he worked for a leading Japanese logistics company as a registered Japanese customs specialist.

Chikara has in-depth experience in customs classification, valuation, trade control and negotiation with the Japanese customs authorities. In spite of the complicated free trade agreements and economic partnership agreements in Japan, he is providing tailor-made customs duty services to Japanese manufacturing companies. He provides indirect tax compliance/consultation services to many multinational companies. Due to recent Japanese consumption tax reforms, he is mainly assisting clients in the consumer business and financial industries with indirect tax optimisation not only from a tax perspective, but also from a business and systems perspective.

Chikara regularly presents at various indirect tax seminars. In addition, he has contributed to several articles and publications on indirect tax matters such as Transfer Pricing and Customs Valuation published by the IBFD.

Chikara is a certified public tax accountant (Japan) and a license holder of customs specialist (Japan).
