They made this known in a statement, where they also thanked the Ministry of Economy for taking into account that the political crisis and inflation have caused small and micro businesses, such as wineries, to be the ones that are most affected.
“We reiterate our concern about a possible indexation of the Selective Consumption Tax and we request not to update the fixed amounts of the ISC for this 2023, so that a tax increase is not caused and this generates that the products we sell in our businesses continue to become more expensive ”, they maintain in the statement.
“The entrepreneurs who are dedicated to the winery business have registered losses that today reach approximately 200 million soles, as a result of violence and political chaos. An increase in the prices of the products we sell would alienate our customers and many of us would be forced to close”, they add.
