Internal taxation of imports

On 25 July 2019, the Argentine Executive has adopted Decree 515/2019 eliminating the statistical fee applicable to imports of scientific and technological goods.

Concretely, the importation of live animals, animal and vegetal products, raw materials, finished and semi-finished goods, machinery and equipment made by public scientific and technological institutions are exempted from the 2.5% statistical fee.

Earlier in 2019, the statistical fee applicable to imports was increased (please, see related state acts).
