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, 2017, you can enjoy the following:
(1) A two-month extension is obtainable by filing a first request for extension of time and further a one-month extension is obtainable by filing a second request for extension of time. The official fee is JPY2,100 for each request.
(2) It is possible to file first and second 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 JPY4,200 in total.
