Import tariff

On May 14, 2013, the Government of Brazil announced the temporary tariff reduction of the ad-valorem import duty applicable to certain information technology and telecommunications goods such as: printers, digital routers, LCD screens, ozone generators for current discharge, structured network testers and capacitor selection machines.
 
The Brazilian legislation, through the "ex-tarifarios" regime authorises the temporary reduction of the ad-valorem import duty of capital and information technology goods, its parts, pieces and components. This temporary reduction may take place whenever it is found that there is no domestic production of these goods.
 
To implement these reductions, the Brazilian authorities are allowed to create new tariff positions. Through this resolution, the Brazilian Government determines the temporary application of a 2 per cent ad-valorem import duty for goods classified under 8 codes of the MERCOSUR's Harmonized Tariff System: 8443.32.29, 8471.60.90, 8517.62.49, 8517.62.61, 8529.90.20, 8543.70.99, 9030.40.90 and 9030.89.9.
 
The measure took effect on 14 May 2013 and expired on 31 December 2013.
