FRANCE Decree 937/93 Establish a subsidy regime, in the form of fiscal return, applicable to the holders of companies that make sales of new capital goods and of national production for investments in economic activities in the country.

Bs. As., 5/5/93

VISTO the need to accelerate the productive revolution faced by the National Government, and


The economic programme seeks to optimize the use of available productive resources in order to achieve lower actual costs and higher per capita income of the population.

In order to do so, access to the modernization of the productive structure should be encouraged with the encouragement of the entrepreneurship in the field of re-equipment.

That actions for the fulfilment of these objectives should be exercised through mechanisms that facilitate the reconversion of the productive structure.

In addition, the instruments to be adopted must ensure equal access to their benefits by companies that produce and sell the capital goods that are deemed necessary, through an automatic system that reduces the complexity of the procedures.

That is why the granting of a subsidy in the form of fiscal refund in cash equivalent to the QUINCE per SCIENT (15 per cent) of the sale price of the new and manufactured capital goods in the country has been determined as an appropriate way to achieve it.

Moreover, it is necessary for the provinces to adhere to the regime that is instituted by participating in the reduction of the tax burdens that affect the operations that give rise to the return to be favoured, indirectly, by the economic reactivation that will be achieved by the proposed measure.

Moreover, it is essential that the regulations be implemented immediately, in order to avoid the paralysing of the acquisitions of capital goods which, as a logical consequence from their official announcement, occurs until the conclusion of the norm.

That the exercise of legislative powers by the NATIONAL EXECUTIVE PODER, in situations of necessity and urgency such as the present, has the support of the best constitutional doctrine (cf. Joaquín V. González, "Manual de la Constitución Argentina", p. 538, issue 1951; Rafael Bielsa, "Administrative Law", 1954, p. 309) and the jurisprudence of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (Fallos 11:4
