The Argentine tax authorities (AFIP) today released for publication in the official bulletin a general resolution that sets forth rules for compliance with transfer pricing reporting rules and that also establishes the effective date for compliance with these transfer pricing reporting requirements.
The transfer pricing compliance rules in Argentina are intended to implement changes introduced to the transfer pricing rules by Law N° 27.430 and by Decree N° 1.170 (December 2018). Final implementation of the transfer pricing rules, however, was postponed by a number of prior resolutions.
Resolución General 4717/2020 (Spanish) reflects measures that were proposed in an October 2019 draft resolution (read TaxNewsFlash), but also provides more detailed guidance as the final version of the transfer pricing compliance rules in Argentina.
In brief, changes in the general resolution reflect the following:
The general resolution also provides a new set of deadlines for past fiscal years beginning from December 2018, and establishes that transfer pricing studies (filed with an affidavit on Form 2668) and Master file reports corresponding to the tax periods ending between 31 December 2018 and 30 April 2020 (inclusively) are to be filed by taxpayers or responsible parties, in the months of June, August, and October 2020, according to the following schedule for tax periods closing:
The exact dates for filing are established and are based on the last digits of the taxpayer identification number (Clave Única de Identificación Tributaria (CUIT)).
For years after these special deadlines, the transfer pricing reporting due date will be in the sixth month after the fiscal year-end while the Master file will be required to be filed during the 12th month after the fiscal year-end.
