Export tax

On 17 September 2015, the government of Argentina updated the list of criterion values for exports of prawns (falling under HS Code 0306). These criterion values for export, correspond to a FOB Value ranging from USD 4.00 to USD 7.00 per kg. The previous export criterion values corresponded to a FOB value ranging from USD 3.20 to 8.50 per kg. The updated reference values refer to prawn exports registered from 1 June 2015 to 31 December 2015. Thus, the measure takes effect retroactively. The export price set by the traders shall not deviate more than 10% from the reference value (in the context of the previous export criterion values this percentage was 20%).
