Export tax

On 28 December 2012, the Federal Administration of Public Revenue (AFIP) issued General Resolution 3429 adopting reference values applicable to raw leathers and skins for export.
 
The reference values affect the following codes belonging to the Mercosur Nomenclature (NCM):

  • NCM 4102.10.00, raw sheep leather and skins with fur, sun dried, USD 2.28kg
  • NCM 4102.10.00, raw sheep leather and skins with fur, salt dried, USD 3.19kg
  • NCM 4102.10.00, raw sheep leather and skins with fur, except for sun and salt dried, USD 3.19kg
  • NCM 4102.29.00, raw sheep leather and skins without fur, depilated and sundreid, USD 2.28kg
  • NCM 4102.29.00, raw sheep leather and skins without fur, depilated and salt dried, USD 3.19kg
  • NCM 4102.29.00, raw sheep leather and skins without fur, depilated, except for sun and salt dried, USD 3.19kg

 
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 from 2 January 2013 to 6 March 2013.
