Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada provides an illustrative case study for Brazilian import regulations and their costs for a sample export shipment to Brazil.After adding import duties, fees, taxes and other charges, the sample Canadian import delivery to Brazil cost US$161,798. That’s 22.4% higher when compared with comparable Brazilian products locally manufactured with charges totalling $132,160.TariffsAs member countries of MERCOSUL (Common Market of the Southern Cone), the three nations exempted from Brazil’s import duties are Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. All other exporting nations must pay the Common External Tariff (CET), which averages 14% to a high of 20%, depending on the imported merchandise.

ICMS is a state tax payable at all stages of sale from manufacture to consumer. ICMS tax rates range from 7% to 25%, and average 18% in Rio de Janeiro.Strictly speaking, IPI is a tax imposed on manufactured product imports. Thus international traders receive tax credits from I
