CRONISTA.COM - August 2015

A ruling against the AFIP, corresponding to an overseas loan, has been confirmed.

By Dolores Olveira | CRONISTA.COM

Justice has ruled in favour of a company that was able to prove that a money contribution received from its head office overseas was not a simple capital contribution pretending to be a loan in order to accrue interest, and therefore use the expenses to reduce the amounts to be paid as Income Tax, but has instead been a real trade operation.
The Courtroom IV of the Federal Chamber for Contentious Administrative Proceedings, confirmed the final judgement of the National Fiscal Court on the case "Lexmark International de Argentina Inc. Sucursal Argentina" that had revoked an adjustment made by the AFIP (tax authorities) in relation to the deduction of interest and exchange differences concerning unpaid balances in foreign currency due to the purchase of goods to a related company from Uruguay, which the Tax Authorities had considered to be capital contributions.
The AFIP justified that adjustment on the principle of economic reality, re-classifying the importation of inventories as capital contributions in view that the same were operations between related companies, alleging that there existed no term for the cancellation of debts, no interest due to delays in payment, no refinancing agreements signed or special guarantees and, furthermore, there existed no intention for permanence of the funds because the creditors did not expect any reimbursement and had made no claim whatsoever, as explained by Nicolás Scalone, from Jebsen & Co.
The Chamber considered unsatisfactory the evidences produced by the AFIP in order to justify the adjustment made, because it has been duly proved on the case, through accountant’s expert evidence, that the liabilities corresponded to real trade operations and were related to the trade activities of the taxpayer, and that from 2003 to 2007 most of the debt’s total had been cancelled, being this used as a contundent evidence to show the existence of the permanence of funds plead by the AFIP.
