New Decree also further reduces IPI by 24.75% for cars
A new Decree has been issued, allowing a 35% reduction in industrial products tax (IPI) for most goods manufactured in Brazil, while allowing products manufactured in the Manaus Free Trade Zone (ZFM) to remain competitive.
The Decree also reduces IPI by 24.75% for automobiles to balance tax cuts for the automobile sector with tax cuts for other industries. IPI is a federal tax levied on about 4,000 national or imported goods.
The new measures are expected to improve the competitiveness of local industry through lower taxes. And also it will have a positive impact on Brazil's GDP, as reported on the official website of the Brazilian government.
