It all happened in Sao Paulo in Brazil. An electronics retailer boasted Xiaomi products even more, and caught the attention of the Federal Police, who eventually seized a huge amount of products that had not been declared and paid all fees.
We can say that Brazil is not exactly the place where rates are lower for imported products. The store owner, who bought the products in Paraguay, avoided Brazilian taxes by declaring the receipt of electronic products.
There were 60 smartphones and 100 smartwatches seized
In this raid of the Federal police were 60 smartphones, 100 smartwatches and an electric scooter seized. All products lacked the import declaration with the due taxes paid.
In a total of 150 thousand Reais (or 35 thousand euros), this was the estimated value for the collection of electronic products that did not have any official documents of their entry in Brazil.
Ostentation is not the solution
This store called technological influencers and constantly published a huge amount of products in their social networking accounts. It was this ostentation that led to the investigation.
Admittedly, without advertising the business could not have grown in the same way, but it does not seem to me that the police would have looked the same way at the small store in Sao Paulo.
Xiaomi is increasingly a sought after brand in Brazil
With the growth of the brand globally, Xiaomi's reentry in Brazil increased the well-known "Mi Mi Mi". The Chinese company has been giving success letters. Especially in a country where technology is extremely expensive due to the huge amount of government taxes.
