In this context, the president of the Council of Ministers, Aníbal Torres, revealed over the weekend that the Executive is evaluating changes in the Selective Consumption Tax (ISC) that applies to fuels.
“We are with (the Ministry of) Economy studying the Selective Consumption Tax. A series of measures to alleviate this reality that we have not caused it, but that it is a consequence of external elements”, he mentioned in dialogue with TV Peru.
Along these lines, Gustavo Navarro, former director general of Hydrocarbons, pointed out that due to the latest increases, the State is charging more in soles for fuel taxes, so readjusting the ISC would not affect the fiscal box. .
“Since this tax is a percentage of the base price, the State is charging more money. There is no reason why, in an emergency situation like the current one, more is charged for gasoline, so, without the need to affect the fiscal box, it is necessary to calculate how much the treasury charged a few months ago and make the adjustment so that it is keep charging that.”
In addition, he stressed that it is a measure “very fast because a supreme decree is enough and it is already in force the next day” and that the impact on prices would be immediate.
Taxes. Currently, fuels are taxed by the selective consumption tax, the tax on filming and the general sales tax (IGV).
