Debate about tax stability contracts at PERUMIN 33

Mining megaevent will be held from September 18 to 22 at the campus of Universidad Nacional de San Agustín (UNSA) in Arequipa.

Tax stability contracts are made to create a proper balance. On one hand, these contracts guarantee clarity and predictability to mining companies that need to make significant investments as required by the business. On the other hand, they assure Peru to receive benefits on account of increasing investment and production.

However, these agreements have been a point of discussion in the last few months, as it has happened with Sociedad Minera Cerro Verde located in Arequipa and the National Customs and Tax Administration Authority (SUNAT in Spanish) mainly due to the payment of royalties.

This case and others will be discussed in the Legal and Tax Meeting of PERUMIN 33 Mining Convention to be held, for the second time in a row, at the campus of Universidad Nacional de San Agustín (UNSA) from September 18 to 22 in Arequipa.

Stability agreements will be discussed at “Block of Tax Treatment for Mining Activities, do we have what we need?” together with other important topics such as “Trends in SUNAT inspections”, “Relevant Mining Case Law”, and “Incidence of BEPS and Transfer Prices”

Among renowned specialists that will be part of the panel, we have Dr. Marcial García, Socio, Partner of Ernst & Young Taxes (Perú), Dr. Mariela de la Torre, Partner of law firm Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano Abogados (Perú), Dr. Renzo Pérez, Tax Manager of LATAM Trafigura Perú SAC (Perú) and Dr. Liliana Ching, Tax Director at Sociedad Minera Cerro Verde S.A.A. (Perú). This panel will be chaired by Dr. Fernando Zuzunaga, Partner of law firm Zuzunaga, Assereto & Zegarra Abogados (Perú).

The Legal and Tax Meeting, chaired by Dr. Julia Torreblanca, is an opportunity created to present keynote addresses in legal matters related to mining, which objective is to offer specialized knowledge and to explain the importance of generating a suitable legal and tax stability, both from the Governmental and the private sector standpoint as to promote investments, economic growth, and sustainable development.
