Sunat: collection in October registered growth of 31.5% | News
The Sunat collected 11,214 million soles of net Central Government tax revenues (discounting tax refunds) in October of this year, which represented an increase of 31.5% and 14.5% over what was collected that same month in 2020 and 2019 , respectively.
“In accumulated terms, from January to October 2021, it reached 113,210 million soles, an amount that is equivalent to a growth of 45.5% compared to the same period in 2020 and 16.9% compared to 2019,” reported the national superintendent, Luis Enrique Vera.
The National Superintendency of Customs and Tax Administration (Sunat) reported that among the factors that influenced the collection in October, the following stood out:
– The recovery of national economic activity, with significant growth in GDP and domestic demand that would have been recorded in September, exceeding expectations and contrasting with the reductions recorded during the previous year.
– Higher payments for third category Income Tax, especially by companies in the mining sector, due to higher international prices of metals, particularly copper, and the higher exchange rate.
– The increase in imports, which in October would have registered a growth of around 30%, as well as the increase in the exchange rate (12%), translated into a higher collection of customs taxes, especially for the VAT on imports.
– Extraordinary payments of more than 600 million soles recorded in the income tax and fines, as a result of the control and collection actions of the Sunat.
