Export tax

On 6 May2015, Argentina announced that it cut export taxes on biodiesel retroactively for the month of March (2015) from 8.89 % to 5%.

Given that trade flows can not change retroactively this measure was stated to be implemented on its announcement date i.e. 6 May 2015. The measure went out of force with a subsequent increase of the export tax on 25 May 2015.
