En este documento se describen las reformas dirigidas a simplificar el registro laboral y el pago de contribuciones sociales implementadas en Argentina en 2005 y 2007. En base al análisis de la normativa y a una encuesta a contadores, resulta que las reformas redujeron la carga administrativa, pero sólo parcialmente. Utilizando microdatos provenientes de las encuestas de hogares realizadas entre 2003 y 2009, y aprovechando las discontinuidades por tamaño de firma que genera la legislación, se estiman coeficientes de diferencias en diferencias del impacto de las reformas simplificadoras sobre el mercado de trabajo. Los resultados indican que las reformas simplificadoras tuvieron un efecto positivo y pequeño sobre la tasa de registro laboral (de aproximadamente 2 puntos porcentuales para el total de los trabajadores y 9 puntos porcentuales para los nuevos contratados), pero no habrían impactado sobre el nivel de empleo. Finalmente, se presentan recomendaciones de política dirigidas a profundizar el proceso de simplificación administrativa con vistas a mejorar su efectividad como mecanismo de mayor registro laboral.
