II Import tax

II (Import tax; Imposto de importação)

The Import Tax (II) is a federal tax and has protection purposes. The Import Tax rate varies according to the country of origin of the goods and to the classification of the product (according to the custom tariff used).  Brazil use a system called “Mercosur Common Nomenclature” (NCM) to classify import duty and taxation on products imported to the country.

The formula to calculate the II is:

 II = II rate (%) x Customs Value (Valor Aduaneiro )

Valor Aduaneiro = goods value + international freight + insurance value
