Guide

Most frequent questions and answers

Production takes place domestically and products are sold and shipped overseas. Directly or indirectly.

What is the best way to export?

It is up to the company to analyze the best option for its exports. This choice must be made based on the development stage of the enterprise; in its structure; and the availability of trained human resources to manage and execute export negotiation and operationalization.

There are two ways to export:

– Direct: without intermediaries, issuing the proforma invoice, providing the shipping documentation and receiving the payment from the importer;

– Indirect: through an exporting trading company, a trading company, and other indirect export options.

If the company opts for an intermediary, the issuance of the proforma invoice will be the responsibility of this trading company, which will act as an exporter, while the producing company will be mentioned in the process as a manufacturer or supplier.

In this case, the producing company will make an internal sale to the intermediary company, which will act as an exporter, making the entire process and issuing all export documents.

To operate in Foreign Trade the company must be duly incorporated and legalized in the Integrated Foreign Trade System.

The modalities of qualification in Siscomex are Corporate Company and Natural Person.

In the case of a Corporate Company, it is subdivided into 3 sub-modalities:

RADAR Express

The request is made electronically and the system verifies the necessary data for approval, dispensing with the work of receiving and analyzing the documents by a Department of Federal Revenue of Brazil server.

This submodality is intended for companies that intend to export without limits of values and imports, whose sum is less than US$ 50 thousand, in each period of six months.

RADAR Limited

Companies eligible for the limited RADAR sub-modality import up to US$ 150,000 over a six-month period if their estimated financial capacity exceeds US$ 50,000 and less than or equal to US$ 150,000.

RADAR Unlimited

In the unlimited submodality, the company will be able to import above the US$ 150,000 limit if its estimated financial capacity exceeds that amount.

RADAR Natural Person

This modality allows imports for their own consumption, to perform their professional activities – including artisans, artists, farmers and the like – and personal collections.

Benefits such as tax exemption for companies that import products in order to use them in the manufacture of goods for later exportation.

Release of goods by customs for entry into or exit from the country after their documentation and / or cargo has been verified.

The Department of Federal Revenue of Brazil, the customs authority, is responsible for exercising this supervision control of all foreign trade operations, following the entry and exit of goods from the country.

There are numerous checks to decide the conference channel. To define how deep the tax analysis will be, the Brazilian Internal Revenue Service has established the parameterization channels:

I – Green Channel
whereby the system will record the automatic clearance of the goods, without the documentary examination and verification of the goods;

II – Yellow Channel
whereby the documentary examination will be carried out and, if no irregularity is found, the customs clearance will be performed, the goods not being checked;

III – Red Channel
whereby the goods will only be cleared after the documentary examination and physical verification of the goods;

IV – Gray Channel
whereby the documentary examination, the verification of the merchandise and the application of a special customs control procedure will be performed to verify evidence of fraud, including the declared price of the merchandise, as established in a specific standard. Merchandise may be held for up to 180 days for investigation of fraud.

The selection procedure is performed electronically through Siscomex, based on tax analysis and customs risk management, taking into consideration, among others, the following criteria: (i) tax regularity; (ii) habituality; (iii) nature, volume or value; (iv) tax treatment; (v) origin, origin and destination of the goods; (vi) operational and economic-financial capacity; and (vii) occurrences in other operations.

The exporting company purchases goods from abroad with its own resources and promotes customs clearance in order to resell them later to an ordering company, previously determined by contract between the importer and the ordering company.

Importation on behalf of third parties is a service provided by one company – the importer – which promotes, on its behalf, the Customs Clearance on Importation of goods acquired by another company – the acquirer –
due to a previously signed agreement, which may also include the rendering of other services related to the commercial transaction, such as price quotation and commercial intermediation.

In importation on behalf, although the performance of the importing company may range from the simple execution of the importation order to the intermediation of trading abroad, contracting of transportation, insurance, among others, the importer is actually the acquirer, the principal of the importation, the one who effectively brings the goods from another country, due to the international purchase; although in this case it does so by way of interposed person – the importer on its own account and order – who is a mere agent of the acquirer.

Thus, even if the importer on its own account makes the payments to the foreign supplier, early or not, it is not a transaction on its own, but between the foreign exporter and the acquiring company,
because from it come the financial resources.

The exporting company promotes, on its behalf, the customs clearance of importation of goods acquired by another company (the acquirer), due to a previously signed contract, which may also include the rendering of other services related to the commercial transaction.

Imports by order are those in which the Importing Legal Company is contracted to promote, on its own behalf and with its own resources, the customs clearance for the importation of foreign goods. purchased by it abroad for resale to the predetermined orderer.

Thus, as on importation on demand the importer purchases the goods from the exporter abroad, provides its nationalization and resells it to the orderer, such operation has, for the contracted importer, the same tax effects of an own importation.

Ultimately, both the importer and the ordering party must have RADAR qualification and must have the economic capacity to pay for the importation via foreign exchange.
