Paragraph 9.1 of Article 9 of Legislative Decree No. 1264 provides that must be filed an affidavit stating the net income that constitutes the taxable base, subject of the application, and pay the full amount of the tax declared up to the day of filing the affidavit to apply for the Regime.

Through Superintendence Resolution 160-2017/SUNAT, the form, and conditions to file the affidavit referred to in the preceding title were regulated, approving for such purpose Virtual Form No. 1667 – Statement, repatriation, and investment of undeclared income.
5. Effects of the application of the regime

6. Period to consider
Regarding the one-year term provided for in numeral 12.4 of article 12 of Legislative Decree No. 1264, this was applicable to verify the acceptance to the Regime of the subjects that were under the scope of the referred legislative decree, being that such term is not applicable regarding the subjects included in the exclusion assumptions.
