Important!

Dear client, 
According to norms established by Banco Central do Brasil, exchange rate is freely defined by institutions, and values negotiated in market are used as reference.  As to exchange rate applied to Easy Import service, we inform that ECT uses Tourism Dollar sales quotation as published in previous day as reference for elaboration of clearance note. Tourism dollar quotation can be found in main websites specialized in finances, economy and websites of other Regulatory Agencies.  Banco Central do Brasil divulges dayly bulletins only with Purchase and Sale quotations of Commercial dollar.

During an importation operation, there is a natural discrepancy of some days between the moment when taxes inherent to this nationalization are calculated and its registration. Since costs are calculated according to the good, freight and insurance (when applicable) values, and these amounts are usually expressed in foreign currency, importation is subject to exchange variation. In other words, values stated in clearance note are calculated based on shipment parameters and foreign currency costs on that day, observed exchabe rate informed above. What happens is that, at the moment of registration of Importation Simplified Declaration (DSI) and some days after clearance note and payment slip issue, Federal Revenue system uses quotation of currency of the previous day, i.e., a different quotation.

Due to exchange variation, it is statistically impracticable that taxes values coincide with clearance note values. Sometimes taxes will be higher than expected and at other times values are lower.  In the first case, the difference is assumed by ECT, and is not charged to the client. As a consequence, in the latter case, there is no way to compensate for the difference.”
