Brazil Launches Online Service to Simplify Import of Goods

Brazil’s Postal Service and Federal Revenue launched this week, an online system named Minhas Importações (My Imports), designed to streamline the import of goods.

The purpose of the system is to simplify tax payments and the clearance of goods.

The website provides in-depth information on import procedures, interacting with inspection bodies, carrying out payments of taxes and service fees, as well as enabling users to upload of additional documentation and apply for tax revisions. The system allows for taxes to be paid using credit cards.

“The partnership with the Secretariat of Finance streamlines all importation processes. This enables buyers to carry out all procedures online and get the goods at home.

However, in order for this to happen, no matter what the source country, the buyer must choose to make a registered order,” said Postal Service president Guilherme Campos.

According to the Brazilian Postal Service, some 21 million people have ordered items online, with purchases reaching 2.4 billion reais(US$ 739 million).

Airport Concessions

Thirteen airports have been included in the Brazilian federal government’s privatizations program (Programa Nacional de Desestatização) via Decree 9,180/17, issued by president Michel Temer and published this Wednesday (25) in the Federal Official Gazette.

The decree makes the airports eligible for the federal government’s Investment Partnerships Program (Programa de Parcerias de Investimentos – PPI).

The 13 facilities may be put under concession to the private sector in standalone fashion or in groups. Decisions regarding this will be based on privatization modeling studies.

Last July saw the government announce 57 projects for concession and privatization of state-run companies, including 14 airports – among them Congonhas, in São Paulo, the country’s second biggest with an annual passenger throughput of 21 million. This airport, however, was left out of the list made public in the Official Gazette.
