Q99. Extension of Time for Responding to OA
 Is it possible to have an extension of time for responding to an OA? If so, how long is the extended period of time? Can we file an extension of time more than once? How much does it cost to file an extension of time?

A99. Yes, it is possible to have an extension of time for responding to an OA. As of April 1, 2007, you can enjoy the following:
(1) A one-month extension is obtainable by filing a request for extension of time. The official fee is JPY2,100.
(2) It is possible to file a total of three requests, separately or simultaneously. There is no rise up of the official fee in later filed request. Thus, at most, you can have a three-month extension with the official fee of JPY6,300 in total.
