Thinking of doing business in Peru?
The challenges ...
Lack of local knowledge can result in:
Starting a business: Companies can take up to
two or three weeks, depending on company’s
characteristics, on a legal entity incorporation. The first
step is to register the entity with the Superintendencia
Nacional de Registros Publicos (SUNARP) and then
with the Superintendencia Nacional de Aduanas y de
Administración triburatia – (SUNA), the tax authority.
Declaring taxes: A tax payment is an extremely
complex procedure taking around 200 business hours.
VAT and income tax must be filed monthly, and income
tax must be filed annually as well.
Social security system: Peru has a social security
system where its contribution is mandatory for medical
attention; it is administrated by Seguro Social del
Perú (Es Salud). Employers must contribute 9% of
employees’ salary for medical attention and 13% to
national or private pension system.
Labour legislation: In 1997 the Productivity and
Competitiveness law was issued to regulate the most
basic principles of labour relationships, including
employee terms, conditions and benefits. It applies to
all employees working in Peru, including employees of
foreign nationality.
Special reports: As well as the tax return, each entity
in Peru must report its transactions, pay the Financial
Transaction Tax and provide information to INEI
(National Statistics Institute). These reports must be
prepared monthly and annually. ... and the opportunities
Increasing FDI: The foreign direct investment in Peru
is now three times bigger than seven years ago and its
exports have tripled. According to the World Bank, Peru
is the 5th in the world and the 1st in Latin-America in
investor protection law.
Foreign rights: In Peru there is a regime to promote
foreign direct investment. All foreign investors have the
same rights as the local Peruvian companies.
Exemptions:The exemptions and the tax reductions
are offered to some economic sectors in the income
tax (0% or 15%) and VAT (0%) or VAT refunds when
exporting goods or services.
