Ecuador: update of rules for filing information regarding beneficial owners
Through Resolution No. NAC-DGERCGC23-00000015, the Ecuadorean tax authority (SRI) amended the previous resolution that regulates the obligation to file beneficial ownership information. The new resolution establishes that the submission of the first annual report on beneficial owners must be submitted within the first three months following the date on which the SRI communicates that the process of implementation of the Registry of Beneficial Owners has been completed.
In the same resolution, the definition of “legal structure” is modified, such that trusts and other legal entities organized or constituted abroad that have an administrator, fiduciary agent, protector or any other equivalent figure resident in Ecuador, are added as legal structures.

Peru: indirect disposal of shares.
On May 23, 2023, the Peruvian tax authority (SUNAT), issued report No. 000064-2023-SUNAT/7T0000, which specifies the proper tax treatment of the indirect title transfer of shares in which one of the legal entities lists its shares on the stock exchange and the other does not. SUNAT concludes that, in the case of an indirect disposal of shares, the market value of the shares is determined by applying the highest listed value for the legal entity whose shares are listed on the stock exchange (or other mechanism), and by applying one of the methods provided in the Income Tax Law Regulations (discounted cash flow, equity value or appraisal value) for the other.
