Temporary Exports From, Imports Into Brazil to be Eased with Adoption of Carnet System

Doing business in Brazil will soon become easier for many international businesses following that country’s agreement to adopt the use of carnets, an international passport for merchandise honored by more than 75 countries. The Brazilian Senate’s approval of the Istanbul Convention will facilitate trade in many items by eliminating the need to endure extensive customs procedures, pay duties and value-added taxes, and purchase temporary import bonds. Brazil’s decision to participate in the international carnet system follows several years of efforts by STTAS do Brasil in conjunction with the World ATA Council and the U.S. Council for International Business.

The Istanbul Convention, adopted by the World Customs Organization in June 1990 and in force since 1993, is primarily designed to facilitate the temporary entry and exit of goods by removing the need to pay customs taxes or complete entry procedures. Commercial representatives, exhibitors, executives and other professionals use carnets to move goods among signatory countries with relative ease and flexibility and little cost.

Brazil: Venture Capital’s Next Hotbed?

Investments in Brazilian startups are surging, but high taxes and strict labor laws could hamper returns.

Brazil is best known around the world for soccer, samba music, and supermodels. Now it’s emerging as an attractive destination for investment capital.

At a June 25 conference in New York, a Brazilian venture capital trade group announced some impressive figures. As of the end of 2008, local and foreign investors had committed $28 billion in venture and private equity capital to Brazilian companies, said Luiz Figueiredo, president of the Brazilian Association for Private Equity & Venture Capital. That’s up from $6 billion in 2004, amounting to a hearty 50% compound annual growth rate over the last four years. Investors have financed 500 Brazilian companies to date with venture or private equity capital, and there’s $12 billion left to invest over the next few years from that $28 billion kitty (by S. E. Ante, BusinessWeek, June 28, 2009)
