The Brazilian Government recently announced new amendments to taxes on financial transaction regulations, which includes reduction of tax on foreign exchange transactions (Impostosobre Operacoes Financeiras – IOF) related to the inflow of resources within Brazil from 2 percent to zero. The rates are effective as of December 2, 2011. The following transactions attract zero tax within Brazil:     Investment in the stock exchange or futures and commodities exchange markets (with the exception of derivative transactions entailing pre-fixed earnings); Acquisition of publicly offered shares or subscription of shares, provided that the issuing companies are registered with the stock exchange market for negotiation of shares; Acquisition of Private Equity Fund quotas or funds that invest in their quotas, incorporated as per the Securities Exchange Commission rules; Liquidation of simultaneous exchange transactions undertaken to bring funds into Brazil for investment in shares that are negotiated within the stock exchange market by way of cancelation of depositary receipts; Liquidation of simultaneous exchange transactions for the inflow of funds into Brazil as a result of transfer from the direct investment regime to the portfolio investment regime; Acquisition of bonds issued as per Articles 1 and 3 of Law 12,431 (which relates to bonds acquired as of January 1 2011, object of a public offer, issued by non-financial legal entities which are resident outside Brazil –with exception of residents of tax havens) or quotas of investment funds where upto 85% of the portfolio is comprised of debentures issued by legal entities specifically incorporated to implement infrastructure, research and other innovative development projects.   Tax on Credit Transactions……………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Credit transactions involving individual borrowers, including transactions related to concession of lines of credit and financed acquisition of non-residential real estate are subject to decreased IOF tax rates of 0.0062% per day (previously 0.0082%).
