Brazil’s business labyrinth of bureaucracy is an article by Luciani Gomes, BBC. The research is illustrating the bureaucracy maze that each entrepreneur is facing to start his own business in Brazil, the sixth economy in the world.
According to the World Bank’s 2012 annual global report “Doing Business”, which evaluates the ease of starting a business, dealing with construction permits, registering property, and paying taxes, Brazil ranked 126th this year out of 183 countries.
On average, it takes 13 procedures and 119 days of work to start a business in Brazil.
And construction permits demand an average 17 procedures and 469 days to finally get authorised.
