Brazil is a country known for its rich coffee, the brightest carnivals and excellent football players. The country is located in South America and is the only Portuguese-speaking state on the American continent. Brazil covers an area of ​​8,515,770 square kilometers, which is 5.7% of the entire land area of ​​the Earth.

Brazil is the largest state in South America, both in terms of territory and population, which is 205,737,996 inhabitants. The state of Brazil is considered to be a federation that includes a federal district, 23 states and 3 territories.

The Brazilian economy has surpassed the development of the economy in other South American countries and occupies a special position in the markets in the world. In 2004, Brazil stabilized its microeconomy by getting rid of debt and creating foreign exchange reserves.

Since 2008, the state has been an external creditor without any debt and has investment status, according to two rating agencies. There were, of course, economic drops in the period from 2008 to 2010, but Brazil has successfully dealt with all the difficulties and returned to the ranking of the most prosperous countries.

For foreign investors, the state is one of the most profitable investments due to its high interest rates and stability in terms of economic growth.

The increase in Brazilian capital led to the rapid growth of the local currency, which forced the heads of government to raise taxes on some foreign investment. Brazil has been and remains an oasis of stability in the global economy thanks to its smart approach to financial management in the country.

Brazil is one of the most key and significant countries in the developing world and has the largest economic potential among Latin American countries.

It is not surprising why many investors choose Brazil to conduct their business and are happy to open offshore companies in the state. It is especially profitable to open your own business for the production of coffee and its transportation to other countries.

In most cases, the owners of offshore companies remain unknown, so the opportunity to go about their business without any difficulties is very high.

When registering an offshore company, the owner also has the opportunity to open his account with a local bank, and this operation does not require personal presence.
