Discussion Japan is planning to introduce a new invoice system that will likely force contractors like mangaka, Vtubers, singers to reveal their real name

First time I had heard of this, the articles linked don`t really explain what is going here.

Seems to be attempts to cut down on tax leakage/ fraud by requiring more strict documentation of input/output, exactly who money is going to for tax credit purposes.
The articles say with this Japan is moving to a Europe like VAT system.
Having said that, not sure why names of contractors need to be in a publicly accessible database.

Which gives me the question, how does a similar system work in Europe? I`m assuming they have already found methods to work around the privacy problems?

Some neutral articles on the tax change:
