By means of Communication “A” Nº 7542/2022, the Central Bank of Argentina (“BCRA”), modifies certain aspects related to the access to the exchange market (“MULC”) in order to pay imports of goods, specifically to Communication Nº7532.

Also the communication brings the parameters to calculate the quota for these specific situations; (ii) reduces from 90 to 60 calendar days the access to the MULC for those imports that have an associated SIMI category B or C declaration in force and correspond to fertilizers and/or phytosanitary products and/or inputs to the extent that they are used for their local processing; (iii) the limit amount of SIMI Category A will be given by the amount that is greater between USD 1,150,000 and the value that arises from applying the general calculation provided in Section 10.14.1 of the MULC Regulations for small and medium companies; (iv) the Communication brings new exceptions to the obligation of submitting a sworn statement regarding the fulfillment of the annual quota for SIMI category A imports; and (v) the Communication adds two situations in which payments to non-residents are allowed without limitations: services hired to non-residents by financial entities to meet their operational needs and payments by local agents that collect in the country the funds paid by residents to non-resident providers of digital services.
