Export tax

On 24 February 2011, the Federal Administration of Public Revenue (AFIP) adopted General Resolution 3052 which increases the reference prices on the export of honey which figures under Mercosur Nomenclature (NCM) 0409.00.00. The measure stipulates that the export price shall not deviate by more than 10% from the reference price:

  • USD 3.00kg (from USD 2.80kg): natural bee honey, in bulk, in boxes higher or equal to 300 kg, all countries of destination mentioned under 'Affected Trading Partners', except for Canada and US
  • USD 3.10kg (from USD 2.90kg): natural bee honey, in bulk, in boxes higher or equal to 300 kg, destined for Canada and US

 
Argentina introduced reference values of precautionary nature for exportgoods in 2005 (in Spanish: valores referenciales de carácterpreventivo). The stated purpose is to safeguard the revenue derived fromthe payment of export duties (see WTO Trade Policy Review).The reference values are based on free on board (FOB) prices in USD. Alist with all current reference values can be consulted under: www.afip.gob.ar/Aduana/valoracion/Valores%20Referenciales%20vigentes.pdf
 
The measure was effective on 7 March 2011 and suspends the previous reference prices on honey under General Resolution 2786 of 26 February 2010. On 16 May 2011, the reference prices were updated by General Resolution 3098 (see 'Related Measures').
