Legalization of affidavits on tax residence

To obtain the benefits of the Agreement to Avoid Double Taxation between Argentina and Canada, it is necessary to submit an affidavit to the withholding agent using the model established by General Resolution 3497/92 of the AFIP. This sworn declaration must be legalized by the Consulate whose circumscription covers the address where the person or company is located.

To legalize the affidavit on fiscal residence at this Consulate General please follow these steps:

  1. Download the model of affidavit and complete the information.
  2. The individual or company representative must sign the affidavit before a notary public.
  3. The public notary will certify that the interested party's signature was placed in their presence by signing and sealing the affidavit.
  4. Submit the affidavit to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to certify the information (for more information visit the following link).
  5. The signed affidavit by the interested party, certified by the notary and the CRA, may be legalized, provided it meets the general requirements for legalizing documents (i.e. the notary's signature is registered or authenticated by a provincial or national institution - more information at the following link).

Please note that this General Consulate will not legalize the following documents:

  • Certificates issued by the CRA that do not conform to the model of General Resolution 3497/92 of the AFIP.
  • Affidavits that are not signed by the company representative, and whose signature has not been made before a notary.
  • Affidavits without a CRA seal and signature.
  • True copies.

If you have any questions, please send us an email.
