I am located in Germany (EU), and my Brazilian customers say that for importing my services they have to pay 52% of taxes on top of my invoices. Previously, they assumed it's 24%, but that turned out to be wrong. Apparently, there are strong protectionist measurements by the Brazilian government, hoping to stimulate the domestic market.
Is there any way to bring down these taxes? Could I, as a German citizen, found a company in Brazil?
