The minister pointed out that these regulatory changes will allow debts to be recovered both at the level of Sunat and the Judiciary.

“Today in the Council of Ministers, among the regulations that have been approved there is one that is very important, which is the modification of the tax code. This will allow us not only to make the tax debt recovery processes more efficient, but it will also allow us to have faster processes, not only at the tax administration level (Sunat) but also through the processes that are carried out in charge as a result of the appeals and challenges before the Judiciary,” the official said at a press conference.

Chero explained that this proposal was an initiative of the Ministry of Economy and Finance and has been unanimously approved by the Council of Ministers. “It is in the line of how to recover all the debts that all kinds of companies in Peru have to the State that have unpaid tax obligations,” he said.
