Wire transfer fees

Developers in Argentina receiving payments by wire transfer may be asked by their banks to present supporting documents when receiving payments.
Instructions can be found in Communication "A" 6037, which details the bank forms to be filed, along with an exchange ticket. These compliance requirements may be required by banks, regardless of the amount received.
Please contact your bank to verify what documentation you will be asked to provide. You may be asked to issue an invoice according to the local tax rules in Argentina. Your tax advisor can guide you through creating such an invoice.
