Telefonica del Peru SAA (TELEFBC1) said it paid 134 million soles ($49.7 million) in back taxes to the South American nation’s tax agency, newspaper El Comercio reported.
Telefonica, Peru’s biggest fixed-line and mobile-phone operator, was ordered to pay the taxes dating back to between 2000 and 2005 by a local court, the Lima-based newspaper said today in its online edition, citing company officials it didn’t identify.
Telefonica plans to dispute the ruling, Comercio said.
