What are the Accounting & Taxation Requirements in Argentina?

Argentina offers plenty of fiscal advantages for those interested in doing business in its growing economy. From attractive legal frameworks for foreign investors to decreasing corporate tax rates, Argentina is working on changing policies to become a more attractive country to do business in.

A person’s liability to Argentinean tax is determined by residence status. A person can be a resident, a non-resident with permanent presence, or a non-resident for Argentinean tax purposes (foreign beneficiary). The country’s accounting and tax processes can be complex, and it’s recommended you seek expert local advice to understand your obligations.

Individuals resident in Argentina are taxable on worldwide income and may obtain a foreign tax credit for taxes paid on income from foreign sources. Non-residents and foreign beneficiaries are only taxable on their Argentine-source income. Residents and non-residents are taxed at progressive income tax rates ranging from 5% to 35%; however, special tax rates are applicable in case of gains derived from securities (including dividends), interest, and real property.
