Registration of economic enterprises in Brazil is a quite complicated procedure. In order to register, you need to submit documents to a few institutions on local and federal levels:
Junta comercial – chamber of commerce;
Departmento de Registro Empresarial e Integração – department of registration and business integration;
Tax departments of Ministry of Finance.

Each registration department has got their own register. Access to registers on federal level is limited, because it is only available by the registration number that is not available to the public. The public database of commercial enterprises is available on the website of Government of Brazil, but it is rarely updated and does not always contain relevant information.
There is more information available in regional registers, but unfortunately they only exist in 16 states of Brazil.

To get a required document, we will need the following information about a company:

  • Full legal name
  • ID number
  • Region/state/municipality of registration

Apostille for extracts from Brazil

Brazil acceded to the The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents on 2 December 2015.

Therefore, the documents issued in Brazil are subject to a simplified apostilling procedure, thus the documents gain full legal value in Convention member states after notarised translation.

In addition, you can order notarised translation from Portuguese.

We provide extracts from the register in strict compliance with the legislation of the Federative Republic of Brazil, and the General Data Protection Regulation.

Inquiries are processed within one working day. Courier delivery of apostilled documents is paid separately by courier service tariffs.
