CURRENCY AND TAX IN PERU

Peru's currency is the Nuevo Sol (S/.). One Nuevo Sol is broken down into 100 céntimos (cents). Banknotes currently circulating include 200, 100, 50, 20 and 10 Nuevos Soles, while there are coins for 1, 2 and 5 Nuevos Soles and 50, 20, 10 and 5 cents.

Currency exchange

There are no restrictions for changing currency in Peru.
US dollars are commonly accepted in most hotels, stores and supermarkets in Lima and in the main cities in the country. We recommend to exchange money in banks, because they offer more security and guarantees.

Avoid street moneychangers as they do not provide guarantees, despite of the fact that many of them are registered in municipalities in many districts of Lima.

Visitors should bear in mind that it is very difficult to change currencies other than the US dollar.

 

Nature of the tax
Value added tax (VAT).
Tax rate
VAT standard rate is 19%.
Reduced tax rate
There is a reduced VAT rate of 2% for certain products and some exemptions (0%) for foodstuffs, urban passenger transport, the international transport of cargo, life assurance polices, some financial products, books, construction and maintenance of ships.
Other consumption taxes
Peru has established a consumption tax, "Impuesto Selectivo al Consumo", for the sale and import of goods such as cigarettes (125%), alcoholic drinks (20%); sparkling and mineral water, luxury items, fuel (fixed sum), gambling and betting.
