The Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry and three other groups representing small and midsize firms rallied Thursday against government moves to launch a corporate tax based on criteria other than profits.

Some 1,100 people from the four groups, mostly managers of small companies, assembled at a Tokyo hotel and adopted a resolution against the so-called pro forma standard tax, saying it would raise their tax burden and further damage finances. Some Diet members opposed to the tax also attended the gathering.
