ANNOUNCEMENT 31 Jul 2017
The Government of Argentina modified the export rebates regime affecting certain goods enclosed in 11 tariff lines.
This regime consists of the total or partial reimbursement of the internal taxes related to the production and commercialization of the exported goods. The rebates specify a percentage of the exported good's FOB value that is granted as a tax credit. The tax credit may then be used to pay internal taxes such as the VAT on inputs for the exported products.
It is important to point out that only products with certain particular characteristics such as package volume or species enjoy the rebates.
