  2. Tax on Circulation of goods and services (ICMS)
  3. Contributions to PIS (Social Integration Programme) and CONFIS (Social Contribution to Social Security Financing)

The General MFN (Most-favoured-nation) not subject to foreign trade preference varies between 0% and 35%.

All the tariffs in Brazil are ad valorem and applied on the CIF value of the imported product.

The Brazilian import tariffs are comparatively progressive (higher for higher value-added products and reduced prices for raw materials).
