This article discusses the role of intergovernmental transfers by using an empirical analysis applied to a panel of regions (departments) of Uruguay during the period 2006 – 2014. First, we discuss the structure and evolution of the regional fiscal disparities and the equalizers effects of the current transfer system in Uruguay. Then, we propose a new methodology that allows us to simulate the effects of the implementation of a new system of equalizer transfers. The main result suggests that the implementation of this new system of intergovernmental fiscal transfers contributes to consolidating a territory with a higher level of fiscal homogeneity.
