Doing Business in Peru
 
 
 

General

The Peruvian government encourages foreign investments, in particular those developing exports. Free trade zones have been created, offering more opportunities to companies willing to set up in Peru. The legislation identified 4 types of free trade zones: industrial, tourism, commercial and development. Industrial zones are the most important in terms of international trade development. They are devoted to the industrialisation of exportable goods and services. Companies benefit from tax and import duties exemptions (on components intended for manufacturing for example). Tourist trade zones deal with local and foreign tourism promotion. Commercial zones, on Peru's borders, aim at developing commercial activities. All products are subject to a 10% customs duty and are VAT free. Special development zones allow the development of little developed areas.
