The Government of Argentina incorporated the direct actors of the citrus production chain of the provinces of Buenos Aires, Tucuman, and Catamarca to the extension of the payment of tax and social security obligations via Decree 296/2021, published on May 6 in the country's Official Gazette, a regime that already covered the citrus production chains of the provinces of Entre Rios, Corrientes, Misiones, Jujuy, and Salta.
The extension includes the general maturities for the payment of tax and social security obligations from June 20, 2020, until the end of the emergency, next June.
Law 27,507 issued in June 2019 the economic, productive, financial, and social emergency for the citrus production chain of certain provinces for 365 days. Last year, Law 27,569 extended the emergency for another 365 days.
According to the current decree, to achieve the expected benefits, the activity carried out in the citrus production chain must be the producers' main activity and account for more than 50% of the gross income they had between June 1, 2019, and May 31, 2020.
The same conditions will be maintained when the period to be considered is later than the indicated dates. The fulfillment of said requirement will be accredited by means of a certificate issued by the competent provincial authority where the applicant carries out his or her activity.
In addition, producers must submit a report issued by an independent public accountant regarding the income obtained from the benefitted activity during the referred period.
