It also raises the monthly gross salary limit (on the payroll) to avoid paying income tax, which in 2022 is S/2,300 and by 2023 it will be S/2,475. In the case of independent workers who issue receipts for fees, the maximum monthly amount of issuance to avoid paying taxes increases from S/3,354 to S/3,609.
