Hey Fredy, how are you?


If you are talking about retentions ("retenciones"), the way the law is right now, services export cant be issued with this type of taxes.


For goods like soy and cereals, they can because they export things, not services, so we have to wait until the law goes thought the congress with the annual presupuesto, to see if they also aprove this new law.


Besides that, even if they aprove the charging of this retenciones taxes to services, as we are Monotributistas, we already pay everything every month, so maybe this taxes will be no applicable to us.


And about the bank fees and transaction charges, Im about to test it up a flow that could be the best regarding fees eficiency.


Im thinking on sending the money from UPWORK to payo for $2 USD, then from payo to my bank account (Santander rio USD) for 2%, and recieving on my account for only 0,125%+IVA if I do several transactions of less than 50USD (making transactions is so easy, so I dont have any problem on repeating the process several times).


Remember to always to a Factura E to legally declare your earnings (the money doesnt necesarally need to be sent on one transaction as long as it is declared).


I will update the thread once I have analized everything.

I'm new to this community forum, and I'm not sure this is the right place to put my question Smiley Happy I am an Argentinian English-Spanish translator and would like to talk to other Argentinian freelancers working in Upwork. I am in monotributo and I'm able to create Facturas de Exportación. My question is, should I invoice Upwork for the amount of my earnings or the end client? What name should I include in the invoice? I would really appreciate any insight on this. Thanks!

Hi everyone! I would like to know if I can do a Factura C and receive payments on a local bank account in Argentina (in pesos)? What information should I put in the invoice and AFIP? 


Thank you!

Hi, the invoice (factura) should be E not C. You are exporting services. You can use upwork data or your client one. It doesn't matter if the payment is in pesos and if you are using direct to local bank, nubi, wire transfer or any payment method

Hello! How do you make an E invoice? Because when I go to the "transaction history" section in reports, the pdf doesn't clarify that  I'm getting a type E. I would really appreciate any help I can get.

Hi Sol! 

My accountant told me it´s not that important to include every detail in these invoices. I include this:


Pais destino: EEUU (because my client is there)
CUIT del pais: 55000002126
ID impositivo: (nada)
Apellido y nombre: nombre de fantasía del cliente
Direccion: dirección legal del cliente
Email: nada


And that´s it!
