Export tax

On 21 Janaury2016, the government of Argentina increased export taxes on biodiesel retroactively for the month of January (2016) from 0% (i.e. the export tax for the month of December in 2015) to 1.62%.
 
Given that trade flows can not change retroactively this measure was stated to be implemented on its announcement date.
The measure was replaced by a further increase in the export tax in February 2016.
