INTERNATIONALIZATION IS A STRATEGIC FACTOR FOR COMPANIES TO GAIN COMPETITIVENESS OR EXPAND MARKETS. KNOWLEDGE OF THE APPLICABLE RULES IS ESSENTIAL TO MAXIMIZE RESULTS, IDENTIFY THE OPPORTUNITIES OFFERED BY SPECIAL CUSTOMS REGIMES, AND MANAGE THE RISKS OF IMPORT AND EXPORT PROCESSES.
With partners and lawyers focused on the business objectives of our clients, we advise domestic and foreign companies on how to comply with the complex Brazilian foreign trade legislation, always finding the right way to import or export goods, services, and securities.
We offer full advice on foreign trade and customs law for domestic and international clients. We have solid expertise in evaluating strategies for project implementation, especially in the infrastructure sector, based on the use of special customs regimes to ensure the economic viability and the best financial performance of the enterprise.
We provide solutions for modeling transactions that offer legal certainty, operational agility, and taxation in the correct way according to current rules. To this end, we identified the appropriate customs and tax regimes to rationalize the tax burden and simplify operational processes, knowing the import and export procedures specific to the type and destination of goods. All this gives agility to the business, reduces costs, and allows anticipation and mitigation of risks of questioning by tax and customs authorities.
In the taxation of foreign trade transactions, we support our clients in complying with customs valuation and tax classification rules, in the use of preferential treatments under international agreements (such as Mercosur, Aladi, and other Economic Complementation Agreements) and in relation to rules of origin, ex-tariffs, and trade defense measures (such as anti-dumping and subsidies).
We advise our clients on how best to meet the legal requirements for the release of goods, including through formal consultations for the interpretation of customs legislation, in addition to interacting with institutes and experts responsible for preparing reports according to the rules of tax classification.
We also practice in litigation matters in the administrative and judicial spheres, defending our clients in the event of assessments and imposition of penalties.
