Peru's General Sales Tax (IGV) collection increased 13.1% in July 2018 compared to the same month last year, Central Reserve Bank (BCR) reported.
Last July, the increase in IGV revenue
was explained by an improved economic activity.
Greater collection —due to external IGV— reflects higher imports of fuel (43%) and industry inputs (20.2%), mainly chemical-pharmaceutical products, within the context of dynamism in the economic activity.
