17:16:54 # Life Electronic receipt storage in Japan. Japan also started allowing electronic data for receipts, but had some red tape associated with it. Presumably they were worried about increase in fraud cases. Law amendment that went in effet Jan 2022 made the last annoying bits simpler. We used to be required to sign the paper receipt and scan within 3 days of receiving the receipt. This special requirement is now gone. It took a few years to reach this state but now we are at a similar state as our colleagues in the US. Nice.
