Benefit that generates economy

The “EX” Tariff system is a mechanism to reduce costs in the purchase of capital goods (BK) and information technology & telecommunications goods (BIT). It is the temporary reduction of import tax of such goods (marked as BK and BIT at the Mercosur Common External Tariff) when there is no domestic production. The importance of this regime can be proved by three main points:

  • Increase in technological innovation by companies from different segments of the economy – as recommended in the guidelines of the Industrial, Technology and Foreign Trade Policy
  • Guarantee of a protection level for domestic industry of capital goods, since it is granted only to goods that have no domestic production
  • Generation of a multiplier effect on employment and income for different segments of the national economy

DESMAR’s large experience translates into greater sensibility and accuracy to assist you on obtaining or adapting your products to the “Ex” Tariff system. Our engineering team, along with your company technicians, develops studies that identify the use of the benefit.

Thus, in the process of obtaining the “EX’s”, DESMAR also provides complete advisory to your company, from consultation of responsible class entities for obtaining the Certificate of Absence of Domestic Production and/or to the formulation of new applications for presentation to competent control agency.

Advantages in the import of used machines and equipments

Imagine a project of your company that demands equipments only in the foreign market. This could be a problem! Now imagine that this equipment can be found in the foreign market, used, but in good conditions and with more attractive prices. This can become an excellent solution to your company. However, there are certain rules to make this kind of operation. Rules which require expertise to be put into practice, considering that the import of used machines and equipments is subject to licensing prior to shipment of the goods abroad, as procedures established by the Ministry of Industry, Foreign Trade and Services. In this sense, DESMAR helps your company in the import of such goods, preparing spreadsheets of costs to justify the benefit of the operation. Through our engineering sector, the used material will be evaluated to obtain the approval of the Import License by the DECEX.
