Peru's tax authority postpones filing of CbC report for 2019 tax year
The country-by-country report filing for the 2019 tax year is indefinitely postponed for certain taxpayers. Taxpayers should review the conditions in the ruling to determine if they qualify for the postponement.
On September 28, 2020, the Peruvian tax authority published Ruling No. 000155–2020, which indefinitely postpones the filing of the country-by-country (CbC) reports for the 2019 tax year, for Peruvian taxpayers that are members of a multinational enterprise (MNE) group whose ultimate parent entity (UPE) is a nonresident related party. Specifically, the due date is postponed for taxpayers that meet any of the following conditions:
The deadline for submitting the 2019 CbC reports is now aligned to the 2017 and 2018 postponements. For the three tax years of 2017, 2018 and 2019, the due date will be the last business day of the month following the month in which the Peruvian tax authority publishes on its website that Peru has met the standard of confidentiality and security for information, as required by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
Unlike tax years 2018 and 2019, the postponement for tax year 2017 applied only to taxpayers resident in Peru that had to submit the CbC reports because the jurisdiction of the UPE's residence has an international treaty or Andean Community decision in effect with Peru that authorizes the exchange of tax information, but does not have a qualifying competent authority agreement in effect with Peru for the exchange of the CbC report.
