Import tariff

On 5 June 2009, the Federal Administration for Public Revenue of Argentina (i.e. AFIP by its Spanish acronym) adopted External Notice 49/2009 decreasing the reference prices set on imports of new tyres classified under tariffs subheadings NCM 4011.10.00, 4011.20.90, 4011.61.00, 4011.92.10 and 4011.92.90.

The new reference prices were decreased from a FOB value ranging between USD 15.60 and USD 820.80 per unit to a FOB valuer ranging between USD 13.00 and USD 565.00 per unit depending on the characteristics of the products. 

The new legislation affected the following jurisdictions: the Republic of Korea, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, China, Chinese Taipei, Philippines, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

This measure applied to imports taking place as of 6 June 2009.

 
Update
On 8 October 2010, the AFIP adopted General Resolution 2932/2010 revoking the import criterion values set on NCM 4011.61.00 to re-establish again the same applicable reference prices. 
 
On 16 September 2011, General Resolution 3180/2011 was adopted by the Federal Administration for Public Revenue of Argentina changing the import criterion values set on new tyres (please, see related state acts).
