EXTRAORDINARY TAX AMNESTY


On the occasion of the imminent enactment by the Congress of a bill containing a tax amnesty regime (including an extraordinary tax payment plan with significant benefits), please bear in mind that the office of CE Consulting Argentina has formed an interdisciplinary group of experts for the examination of the various consequences and considerations that shall be analyzed.

It is worth stressing the significance of this regime, which is part of an international context characterized by a level of transparency in financial reporting of such magnitude that has made more than 100 countries grant their citizens "tax amnesties".

In this understanding, we estimate that it is vital an analysis taking into account, among other factors, the following: corporate and equity structure, goals of taxpayers and clients, family and estate planning, foreign asset valuation, investment structuring, review of the financial cost of the various alternatives granted by the amnesty.

VALUE ADDED TAX


Quarterly payment for Micro, Small and Medium Size companies.

Moreover individuals can access to these benefits if their revenue is equal or lower to the threshold fixed for Micro Companies.
