Aligned with the National Export Plan, RECOF-SPED (Special Customs Regime of Industrial Warehouse under control of the Public System of Digital Bookkeeping ) is a special regime that simplifies and expands the possibilities already offered by RECOF, allowing the beneficiary to import or to acquire in the local market, raw materials, parts and components  on which taxes are suspended. Part of these goods must be applied on industrial processes, and it subsequently can be shipped both to domestic and foreign markets. When exporting the finished good, the company exempts the payment of taxes.

  • Reduction in storage fees charged by INFRAERO (Brazil's Civil Aviation Authority).
  • Suspension of the AFRMM (Contribution for Renovation of the Merchant Fleet).

Requirements to qualify for the regime:

  • Fulfill the obligations to submit the Digital Tax Bookkeeping (EFD) files.
  • Tax compliance.
  • Companies can apply if engaged in : (1) assembling; (2) transforming, processing; and (3) packing and repacking products.
