The Ministry of Economy introduced an exception to the terms
for the transfer of foreign currency proceeds from the exports of
goods into the local financial system.
Through Resolution No. 187/2012, effective May 14, 2012, the
Ministry of Economy amended Resolution No. 142/2012, which had
reduced the terms for the transfer of foreign exchange proceeds
from the export of goods into the Local Foreign Exchange Market
("Mercado Único y Libre de Cambio" or
"MULC") (see "Reduction in the Terms for the
Transfer into Argentina of Foreign Exchange Proceeds from
Exports" in Marval News # 116 dated April 27,
The new regulation established an exception to the compliance
with the new terms for the transfer of foreign currency to the MULC
(provided by Resolution No. 142/2012) for exporters that do not
exceed a certain export level, and for transactions included under
agreements executed prior to the enactment of Resolution No.
Exception to the Terms Established by Resolution No.
The exception to the compliance with the terms set forth by
Resolution No. 142/2012 applies to exporters of goods that, during
2011, have registered exports for less than US$ 2,000,000,
calculated on the basis of F.O.B. value.
The Federal Tax Authority ("AFIP") must provide the
Evaluation Unit, created by Resolution No. 142/2012, with a list of
the exporters that meet such requirement. The repatriation terms
that were effective prior to the enactment of Resolution No.
142/2012 shall be applicable to those exporters, who will be
notified thereof by the Secretary of Foreign Trade
("SFT"). According to a press release issued by the
Ministry of Economy on May 21, 2012, such exporters will be deemed
notified upon their access to the link
Registration of Existing Contracts
Resolution No. 187/2012 also created a registry of
"Existing Contracts" executed prior to the enactment of
Resolution No. 142/2012. The registry, which will work under the
scope of the SFT, will determine the requirements to be met by such
contracts. Such requirements have not been set by the SFT yet. The
repatriation terms that were effective prior to Resolution No.
142/2012 will apply to the transactions included under these
Lastly, it must be pointed out that Resolution No. 187/2012 does
not modify Communication "A" 5300 of the Argentine
Central Bank, which had also introduced changes related to the
terms to transfer into Argentina foreign exchange proceeds obtained
from the payment of exports. Therefore, the additional 120
business-day term revoked by Communication "A" 5300 has
not been restated by Resolution No. 187/2012.
