The Association of Hotels and Restaurants, and Related (Now Peru) demanded greater speed from the Peruvian Government to enact the law that reduces to 8% the general sales tax (IGV) paid by micro and small companies (mypes) in the category of restaurants, hotels, tourist accommodation, catering services and food concessionaires.

Through a statement, the president of Now Peru, Blanca Chávez, said that the reactivation in the sector does not currently reach 70%. In this sense, she said that raising the price of the dishes to compensate for the cost overruns due to the rise in food “would cause a reduction in customers.”

“The entire gastronomic sector is waiting for the promulgation of the government and the Ministry of Economy (MEF), which is a little resistant to accepting this measure. We urgently need it,” he remarked.

“Thousands of gastronomic and hotel businessmen are concerned about the rise in food prices,” he added.

Finally, Chávez recalled that, as a result of the economic crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many actors in the chain have disappeared or become chicken shops, causing a million and a half workers to find themselves on the street.
