Deloitte's View

As a general view, these tax changes pursue a reduction of the tax burden for those individuals with fewer incomes.

With regard to international mobile population, there are important changes affecting the Peruvian Tax Regime applicable to tax resident individuals. Therefore, these amendments, can be a point of tax planning opportunities in Peru as differences in the tax burden can be very significant.
