Argentine Tax Authority launches website service to ensure compliance with mandatory disclosure regime
On 27 December 2022, AFIP published General Resolution No. 5306/2022 (the Resolution) in the Official Gazette. The Resolution established a new informative regime for certain international transactions (RICOI or “Régimen de Información Complementario de Operaciones Internacionales”, in Spanish) to be complied with by Argentine legal entities and replaces the suspended mandatory reporting regime for domestic and international arrangements enacted by General Resolution No. 4838/2020.1
On 27 February 2023, AFIP made RICOI available on its website (http://www.afip.gob.ar) to comply with the regime.
The RICOI must be complied with by companies, non-profit entities, trusts, mutual funds, and permanent establishments incorporated or located in Argentina, for the following transactions:
The international transactions to be reported are those carried out during the fiscal years of the reporting entity that close on or after 1 August 2022.
Taxpayers must report such transactions up to the due date for filing the Income Tax return for the fiscal year to which they correspond (fifth month after year-end, e.g., for fiscal years ended on 31 December 2022, the report is due during the third week of May 2023).
For each reportable international transaction detailed in the Resolution, the local entity must report the following information:
In light of the upcoming deadlines for filing Income Tax returns, taxpayers should evaluate if there is any obligation to report the international transactions included in this informative Regime.
