Export tax

The government of Argentina on 9 April 2015, introduced an updated list of "reference values" for exports of garlic. With regards to garlic, the updated reference values for export correspond to FOB values ranging from USD 0.58to USD 2.12 per kg. The previous export reference values for garlic corresponded to FOB values ranging from USD 0.84 to USD 2.73 per kg.

These updated reference values are relevant for exports to: Germany, France, Spain, Netherlands, Greece, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, UK, Sweden, Canada, USA, Barbados, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Jamaica, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, China, Republic of Korea, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand and Taiwan. The previous export reference values (2013) referred to the same countries to which the 2015 amendments refer to.
 
The affected trading partners are those nations for which Argentine exports exceed USD 1 million in the year prior to the intervention.

Update
On 27 November 2017, the Argentina Federal Administration of Public Revenue eliminated all reference values on exports (please, see related state acts).
