Individual - Taxes on personal income

Last reviewed - 13 May 2024

Individuals resident in Argentina are taxable on worldwide income and may obtain a foreign tax credit for taxes paid on income from foreign sources.

Non-residents and foreign beneficiaries are only taxable on their Argentine-source income.

For Fiscal year 2024, the government established by Law a cedular regime which will be applied on the highest incomes, understood as those that exceed the equivalent of the sum equivalent to 180 annual minimum, vital and mobile salary (SMVM), as a non-taxable minimum.  Under this scenario, employees, retirees and pensioners (no applicable to directors) must pay taxes only when their gross monthly salary is greater than 15 current minimum, vital and mobile salaries (SMVM) at the time of tax determination. The measure will apply from the 2024 fiscal period. In addition a progressive scale is incorporated, whose rates will be established between 27% and 35%, and the value of the Minimum, vital and Mobile salary which will be updated twice a year, in January and July.

Gross Income tax

Gross income tax is a provincial tax applicable to self-employed individuals on gross earnings. The average tax rate is 4% in the Federal Capital (the City of Buenos Aires), and similar rates are applicable in the different provinces. Professionals who do not perform their activity in the form of a company are exempt from the gross income tax in the City of Buenos Aires. The tax is paid by filing monthly tax returns.

Foreign beneficiary tax

Foreign beneficiaries working temporarily in Argentina for no more than six months during the year, who earn income through either the visual or performing arts or other profession, are subject to income tax on these earnings at the rate of 24.5% (35% on assumed profit of 70% of gross income) to be withheld by the local payer. Other tax rates could apply depending on the type of income to be paid.
