LIMA (Reuters) - Peru wants foreign digital companies such as Netflix Inc, Uber Technologies Inc and Spotify Technology SA to pay taxes on sales they make in the Andean country, the head of the local tax collection agency told Reuters on Tuesday.

Claudia Suarez of the National Superintendence of Tax Administration estimated Peru could raise 150 million soles ($44 million) next year from the taxes. She added that her office was working with the finance ministry about passing a decree that would not require congressional approval.
