What I can really recommend is to get a subscription whit a company like Caballero Bustamante or Asesor Empresarial. We are with the latter, it costs S/. 750 a year, and they send you daily a email with all the new laws, 2 weekly a magazine, like 4 or 5 books a year, calendars of laboral and tributary. You can call them with questions, and they have seminars. I go there almost every month, it costs S/. 118 and handles subjects like labor law, contabilidad, tributary etc. They are 2 day courses from 18.30 - 22.00
These courses will help you a lot in understanding how to do business in Peru.
Also when you are subscribed you have access to their website in which you can find all their articles, modelos of contracts etc.
We used to be with Caballero Bustamante, but their seminars are expensive, and their subscription increased to almost S/. 1500, so we switched to Asesor Empresarial.
If you are in the hotel business it is also worth to get into contact with Ahora ( http://www.ahora-peru.com
) You can call them and a specialized lawyer comes to your place to discuss specific items.
But that is worth more when you actually are operating.
My strong advice would be to do things from the beginning according to the laws, because you will avoid many multas, headaches etc. In Peru you can do many things not correctly, but the system basically works as follows: You must, with paperwork, always later on be able to proof you did EVERYTHING according to the rules. You can do many things NOT according to the rules and maybe nobody finds out, or complains. But once you are in the system you MUST be able to PROOF ON PAPER anything you did.
Else the system will 'presume' you did it wrong on purpose, and are subject to multas, interest payments, and more fiscalitations.
Mark my words, the word PRESUME will come back many times once you run your business in Peru !
