Peru - Proposed changes to transfer pricing study, reporting requirements 

March 5: Peru’s tax authority (SUNAT) posted to its website a draft resolution setting forth proposed requirements for taxpayers to file a transfer pricing study along with a transfer pricing affidavit (declaración jurada informativa) for the 2012 tax year.

SUNAT has requested comments concerning the draft resolution. Comments are due on or before 8 March 2013, when the final resolution is scheduled to be officially published.

Study, affidavit due 1 June 2013

If no changes are made to the draft resolution following the comment period, the new rules would apply to formal transfer pricing requirements for fiscal year 2012. Thus, in practice, companies would not only need to prepare and preserve their transfer pricing technical studies for 2012, but also file them—together with their transfer pricing affidavits—by 1 June 2013.

Background

In general, the proposed changes to the transfer pricing study and reporting requirements relate to amendments to the income tax law in June 2012 and related amendments to the income tax regulations in December 2012. These income tax changes were effective 1 January 2013.


The new measures apply transfer pricing standards to transactions with related parties and individuals who are residents in tax havens, subject to certain monetary thresholds.

KPMG observation

The proposed resolution is viewed as being consistent with the 2012 legislative and regulatory changes to Peru’s transfer pricing rules, and would correct certain technical issues, such as one that would require taxpayers to conduct studies of transactions for which there were no tax effects or “immaterial” transactions (i.e., those under the minimum amount standard for the offshore transactions).
