Profits 2024: how to calculate the payment?

According to the state portal, to calculate the payment of utilities, you must first obtain the amount of money that will be distributed among the workers. Then, two calculations are established:

  • A portion of the profits is calculated based on your days worked. The average value generated by a day of employee work to obtain that result is obtained. Let’s take an example. If the work day generates S/3 and you worked 180 days, multiply it and that fraction is equivalent to S/540.
  • The other part considers your income as a worker. The amount of money to be distributed is divided by the sum of the salaries of all employees, this result is multiplied by everything you have earned in the year. Example: if the division yields 0.02 cents and you won S/27,000, they are multiplied and the product is also equivalent to S/540.
  • Both amounts obtained are added and yield a profit to be distributed of S/1,080.

How much is the profit payment per sector?

The calculation of profits also depends on the activity carried out by the company. These vary as follows:

  • Fishing companies: 10%
  • Telecommunications companies: 10%
  • Industrial companies: 10%
  • Mining companies: 8%
  • Commerce and restaurants: 8%
  • Other activities: 5%

According to the National Superintendency of Labor Supervision, failure to pay profits to a worker is considered a serious infraction. In that sense, said entity can act ex officio to apply a fine, which depending on the severity and size of the company, ranges from S/1,138 to S/260,023.
