What is the Consignment Note Complement?

It is a digital tax document created to go along with goods or merchandise that are moved from one place to another by federal means, in order to prove their legitimacy.
In other words, an electronic invoice is generated for the transfer operations carried out by the carriers of goods and merchandise. Said obligation to issue the electronic invoice is applicable for transfers by land, sea, air and rail. If they do not carry out this compliance, the organizations may be accused of smuggling before the authority.


The main objective of the Carte Porte Complement is to prevent the smuggling of products, which generates unfair competition with the tax payer.
