Doing Business in Brazil – 6th edition

From negotiating trade agreements to successfully maintaining economic stability despite the world crisis, Brazil's achievements in recent years have made the country an increasingly prominent player on the world scene and an important destination for foreign investment.

But Brazil's legal framework is notorious for its complexity and the British Chamber, drawing on the expertise of its members and collaborators, has prepared a new edition of Doing Business in Brazil to provide technical insights and valuable tips on the practical and theoretical aspects of doing business in this country.

This 6th edition of our traditional technical publication has exceeded our best expectations for content, providing clear, up-to-date and comprehensive knowledge including an overview of Brazil; clarification on direct and indirect foreign investment; the framework of corporate law; the taxation involved in investment and new business; environmental law; the regulators overseeing the telecommunications, energy, health care and pharmaceuticals, transport, and other industries; insurance and reinsurance; a discussion on intellectual property, covering subjects such as patents, innovation and technology, copyright, and piracy; local aviation; consumer rights; Brazil's international trade relations; and many other subjects.

This guide has been recommended as mandatory reading by some of Brazil's leading law firms and auditors, and is essential to any foreign investor now or in the future acquiring business interests in Brazil.
