What Brazil Customs Clearance process? All goods brought from abroad must be submitted to import customs clearance. This is regulated by Federal Revenue Regulations 680/2006 and 611/2006. The Brazil Customs Clearance for imports is a procedure where the accuracy of the data declared by the importer in relation to the imported goods, the documents presented and specific legislation is checked.
It is at this point that the customs officers check that the information in the documents is in agreement, charging fines when necessary. It is formed by the import documents, which are: Import Declaration, Bill of Lading (when applicable), invoice, import license, certificate of origin, and others.
The customs clearance is done in the Foreign Trade System Integrated (SISCOMEX – Brazilian abbreviature) as soon as the Import Declaration is made. There are two kinds of clearances, in general: the Common Customs Clearance, and the Advance Customs Clearance. The difference between the two is whether the registration of the Import Declaration is made before or after the arrival of the goods.
However, the advance clearance can only be used for the following cases:
The Import Declaration is the main document for the customs clearance, which must be presented to the customs unit where the goods are received. This document must contain, in addition to other information, the identification of the importer and the buyer (if not the same person), as well as the identification, classification, customs value and origin of the goods.
It must be registered by SISCOMEX according to the kind of declaration and clearance. The information presented there is divided in two parts: the general ones, corresponding to importation, and the specific, which include data of a fiscal, commercial and exchange rate nature. When the Import Declaration is registered, the payment of taxes applied in the process is made.
The documents that form the basis for the Import Declaration are:
If the Brazil customs clearance process does not occur within the period defined in law between 15 and 90 days, the goods are considered abandoned, which will result in loss of the goods which are then destined for a purpose determined by law.
