Is your business looking to expand to Brazil? Brazil’s resilient and thriving economy and growing population present opportunities for UK businesses.

Moreover, with Rio's hosting of the World Cup in 2014 and eminent hosting of the Olympic Games in 2016, there are plans for extensive infrastructure improvements. These will have a lasting effect on the country and are something that external investors will be able to capitalise on.

Nevertheless, entry into Brazil is unlikely to be problem free. Brazil's infrastructure has been underfunded for years and the boom-bust cycle with high inflation and high interest rates makes planning ahead a complicated process.


Whether choosing a location, selecting acquisition targets and business partners, devising a market entry strategy or identifying specific business risks, KPMG has a dedicated team to assist you investing in Brazil.

Our Brazil High Growth Market practice consists of seasoned professionals who have worked in Brazil and who have a detailed understanding of what it takes to succeed in this market. We work closely with KPMG in Brazil to ensure that the right people and skill set are brought together to help you.

Brazil is the economic powerhouse of South America and so it is no surprise that cross border investment between Britain and Brazil is on the rise.
The positive long-term prospects of the Brazilian economy, combined with the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games, is resulting in an increasing number of British firms setting up a footprint in this country.

    Federal Resolution 13, published on 26 April 2012 and in force as of 1 January 2013, unifies the Brazilian State VAT (ICMS) interstate rate applicable for imported goods, when those goods are part of interstate transactions. Currently, there are various rates applicable on interstate transactions. 


    Even though the legality and constitutionally of such ICMS import incentives have been discussed by Brazilian judicial courts for many years, the unified ICMS rate of 4 percent will harmonize the current harmful scenario of tax competition.
