Argentina - Online tax return system; mandatory beginning August 2013 

August 7: Taxpayers’ use of Argentina’s online tax return system (SIFERE) for reporting gross revenue to local jurisdictions is mandatory beginning 1 August 2013.


Local Argentine governments impose tax on the turnover (gross revenues) of businesses, with tax rates depending on the type of activity and jurisdiction. The rates are applied to the total amount of gross receipts accrued in the calendar year.

To avoid multiple taxation, a “multilateral agreement” (Convenio Multilateral) exists for distributing the taxable payments among the different jurisdictions.

New version of online system

Resolución General 7, published in the official gazette (Boletín Oficial) on 23 July 2013, approves version 3 of the online tax return system for use by taxpayers in submitting monthly and annual income tax reports for those taxpayers operating under the multilateral agreement.
