The National Superintendence of Customs and Tax Administration (Sunat) reported that, this 2023, people who are in the fourth and fifth category may request the suspension of withholdings and/or their payments on account of Income Tax, as long as do not exceed certain amounts.

It is worth mentioning that the suspension of the IR payment withholding takes effect from the day after the date of the procedure and its validity is until December 31, 2023. Find out more.
