Practical guide: how to import from Brazil

Management, logistics and planning play a key role in international trade. It can become a huge problem when things do not go as planned. The logistics when it comes to importing can impose a real challenge, especially if you’re not familiar with the country’s policies and particularities.

Information about aspects such as certificates, necessary documentation, taxes and other specific requirements can be hard to find depending on the country your company wants to trade with. As for Brazil, that is already a leader in world exports in many segments, it still has a great potential to become the number one in some other areas of the foreign trade, given its size and its economic potential.

Doracorp can help you understand more about the brazilian reality, and facilitate your importing process. With that in mind, we created a Practical Guide on how to import from Brazil. The material is very objective and contains the answers to the many questions you might be asking yourself.

Our e-book gathers valuable information on topics such as:

  • General notions of logistics;
  • general summary of the importing process;
  • permissions and necessary documentation;
  • possibilities to be explored within the country;
  • tax planning for legal tax cost reduction;
  • and directions on how to choose the ideal partner companies.
