International Air freight rates are determined by a variety of factors such as fuel costs, surcharges, and airline capacity.

Therefore, for those interested in shipping their goods from China to Brazil using air freight services, it is important to take these items into consideration when making an estimate on how much one should set aside for air freight rates.

Express services are generally more expensive but also offer faster transit times and a higher level of tracking.

When using an express service, it is important to ensure that the packaging meets all safety requirements for the duration of the shipment. In addition, many express carriers require special documentation and clearances in order to move goods through customs.

Duties and taxes in Brazil

When shipping goods from China to Brazil, international shipping rules must be taken into consideration when assessing duties and taxes. Depending on the type of goods being shipped, taxes may range from 10-35%.

Shipping to Brazil requires importers to become familiar with the nation’s Full Package Value System, and there are many federal requirements to be aware of. Overseas shipping may also be subject to international tariffs, customs documents, inspection fees, VAT taxes, surcharges, and other governmental levies that must be accounted for before shipment.

The customs procedures in Brazil

The Federal Revenue Service is the agency responsible of the goods clearance in Brazil. With the documents provided, the FRS will determine which taxes and clearing procedure will suit to your goods. Here is an overview of the different types of customs clearance procedures when importing in Brazil:

1. Normal Clearance: It is used for general goods with no restrictions or special requests in Brazil. Customs will clear the products, and the importer will pay taxes and duties.

2. Temporary Admission: This procedure applies when a product has to be tested or used in Brazil before it’s exported again. It also applies to goods that must be used in trade shows or exhibitions. The product is admitted temporarily, and taxes will not be paid if the product is exported within 90 days.

3. Tax Exemption: This procedure applies to imported products that are sent for commercial use or business expansion in Brazil. Goods can be cleared duty-free with no additional taxes, as long as it complies with the guidelines set by FRS.

4. Tax Suspension: This procedure applies when importing products that are considered essential to maintain certain industries in Brazil and are tax-exempted for a period of time. This is often used when buying machinery or materials that can be used to produce goods in Brazil.

The following are the types of customs clearance based on the value and type of goods:

  • SIMPLES: This is an accelerated customs clearance procedure available for goods with a value up to 1,500 USD. The paperwork required for this clearance is minimal, including only the invoice and packing list.

Incoterms usually vary from one mode of commercial transaction, contracts, and method of transport.

  4. CPT- Carriage Paid To means when the seller delivers consignments to a particular carrier or nominated person at a location jointly agreed upon by seller and buyer.

  5. DAT- Delivered At Terminal means that the seller delivers the moment the items are off-loaded at the destination terminal.

  6. DAP- Delivered At Place is a term indicating that the seller delivers the goods the moment that gets into pre-agreed destination awaiting unloading.

  7. DDP- Delivery Duty Paid is a term which indicates that the seller delivers the items, cleared at the customs and ready for unloading. The delivery should also be at the agreed destination or particular location.

  8. EXW- It’s also known as EX works which merely means the seller has already delivered suitably packed items to the buyer at the agreed location.

  9. FAS- Free Alongside Ship means that the seller delivers the goods, packaged appropriately, and cleared for export. This is also inclusive of placing them beside the vessel at the agreed upon destination.

  10. FCA- Free carrier means that the seller already accomplishes their obligation to deliver when the goods are handed, packaged accordingly and cleared for export.

  11. FOB- Free on Board- is a term that indicates the seller delivers the goods already packaged and cleared for export.
