Advice from the
international desk

General Information

Business in Argentina is generally conducted through the prior establishment of a relationship of trust between individuals. This takes time and may require the use of a local intermediary for an introduction. It is best to not put too much pressure on Argentine contact partners during trade negotiations. It is recommended to use Spanish during conversations. Finally, make sure to use your contact partners’ titles (doctor, engineer, etc.).


Means of Payment & Banking Specificities

The most commonly used payment is international transfer, followed by documentary remittance and letters of credit, although, in the latter case, to a much lesser extent. The current context of dollar shortages and exchange controls must be taken into account, which can lead to considerable delays in settlement.
