Import tariff

On February 28, 2013, the Government of Brazil announced the temporary tariff reduction of the ad-valorem import duty applicable to certain information technology and telecommunications goods.
 
The Brazilian legislation, through the "ex-tarifários" regime authorizes 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% ad-valorem import duty for goods classified under the following items of MERCOSUR's Harmonized Tariff System: 8471.49.00, 8537.10.20, 8543.70.99 and 9030.33.19.
 
The measure lasts until 31 December 2014.
