One aspect of investing if you’re a Brazilian investor or corporation is you have to release statements on your finances throughout the year in order not to be charged a large fine by the Brazilian securities regulators. Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho knows a lot about this because he’s a Brazilian lawyer whose specialty is corporate and securities law. The statements he says businesses and individuals need to be prepared to release pertain to a wide variety of capital holdings including real estate, foreign securities, working capital, and other funds. If your earnings exceed $100,000 in US dollar value, you have to report statements at least once annually by a deadline. If your funds exceed $100 million, you must meet the deadlines for filing quarterly. Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho has helped many clients through Brazil’s heavy red tape.
