I buy stuff, mostly clothing and toys on the U.S. to resell in Argentina. I travel once a month to the U.S. to do this. I spend 800-1000 dollars each time.
Is it legal? Do I need a special "permission" or "authorization"?
You need to check with the Argentina laws. You can purchase anything you want and transport it to Argentina. Whether that is something you need to declare at customs is up the Argentina. In the US, you are allowed to bring in only so much liquor, jewelry, etc, without paying a tax.
If this answer helped you, please be so kind as to mark it "helpful" or "best answer". This would be greatly appreciated. My response is intended to offer you general advise in response to your inquiry. Please note that no attorney client relationship exists, unless you sign a retainer agreement with my firm. Thank you.
Yes it is legal in the U.S. to export clothing you purchased. As to whether it is legal in Argentina, you need to see an import attorney in Argentina to be sure.
It is legal on this side of the world. You can buy anything you want, in bulk and resell. However, you need to check with Argentinian laws to make sure you are abiding by their laws. Not ours. The resale and profit is occurring over there so their laws would control. Buena Suerte.
Once you purchase items they are your property and you can do what you want with that property; however, you will be subject to Argentina law in the event you want to act as a merchant with that property in that country. You will need to be sure you are not breaking any law by selling foreign goods in that country and you need to declare property to customs and perhaps pay taxes on goods. You should consult with an attorney familiar with Argentina law.
