No começo do mês, veterinários da União Europeia (UE) chegaram ao Brasil para inspecionar frigoríficos de carne bovina, suína e de frango nos estados do Paraná, Goiás, Santa Catarina, São Paulo e Mato Grosso. Os especialistas permanecerão no país até 12 de maio. As exportações brasileiras de carne diminuíram em volume no mês de abril, mas aumentaram em termos de valor em comparação com abril de 2016. Como resposta à Operação “Carne Fraca”, ainda hoje há mercados fechados às importações brasileiras. A equipe de seis veterinários da UE passou o dia 2 de maio no Ministério da Agricultura, Pecuária e Abastecimento (MAPA) com o objetivo de verificar as medidas adotadas pelo governo brasileiro após a Operação. O trabalho dos veterinários começou por Goiás, Paraná e Santa Catarina. Foi apenas em reunião com a Secretaria de Defesa Agropecuária (SDA), ainda no dia 2, que os locais a serem visitados em cada estado foram definidos. A Operação “Carne Fraca” teve início em 17 de março. Ao final daquele mês, as exportações de carne registraram aumento de 9% em comparação com o mesmo mês do ano passado, apesar da imediata repercussão negativa. Durante o mês de abril, a quantidade de carne exportada pelo Brasil diminuiu 13,3%, mas o valor das exportações subiu 0,2%. A resposta dos maiores importadores de carne brasileira à Operação incluiu maior fiscalização e embargos temporários. Segundo o ministro Blairo Maggi, dez países ainda precisam decidir se reabrirão seus mercados à carne brasileira. O ministro assegurou que se trata de um “volume muito pequeno” das exportações nacionais. Apesar da diminuição de 99,9% das exportações brasileiras de carne registrada em 21 de março, a reposta internacional foi menos incisiva do que se imaginava, segundo oficiais do MAPA. Em parte, esse quadro está relacionado à estratégia de engajamento do Ministério com fins de apaziguar as autoridades dos principais parceiros comerciais do Brasil (ver Boletim de Notícias Pontes). No âmbito da UE, o Parlamento Europeu manifestou preocupação com a incapacidade dos mecanismos de controle da UE não terem descoberto a “fraude sistêmica” que diz respeito à carne adulterada em alguns frigoríficos brasileiros. Além disso, outra importante indagação é relacionada ao impacto da Operação sobre a negociação do acordo de comércio entre Mercado Comum do Sul (Mercosul) e UE.

The Mid-Atlantic Precast Association (MAPA) recently announced that one of its producers, High Concrete Group, has received industry honors for an office building project in Philadelphia, PA. The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) presented High Concrete with two awards, including the 2016 Design Award: Best Office Building and the 2016 Design Award Specials: Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award. Both honors were for their four-story office building project at 1200 Intrepid Avenue in the Navy Yard in Philadelphia. The project proves that precast concrete enables the most innovative architectural designs while providing a highly energy-efficient and durable envelope. PROJECT OVERVIEW The building was designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), a Danish architectural firm that has long relied on precast to achieve form and function in their designs. “We came very quickly to the idea that precast concrete would be a great way to achieve our goals on this project,” says Kai-Uwe Bergmann, principal at Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), the architect on the project. One of the most prominent features of the building is the white precast concrete façade, which dips dramatically away from the walkway along the eastern edge, then tips back out again, much like the buildings in a Dr. Seuss story. “One of the key design challenges was to create that curved façade from precast panels,” says David Bosch, design team leader for High Concrete Group, the precaster on the project and one of MAPA’s producers. The curved load-bearing design was achieved by assembling flat, traditional precast concrete panels to form a complex faceted geometry. An interlocking structural system was embedded within the panels to eliminate the need for traditional precast concrete spandrel panels. “The resulting façade creates an aesthetic versatility that is unique to the project,” Bosch says. The design breaks away from traditional architecture to better engage with the local surroundings, says Bergmann. “In many cases, architects design big, boxy buildings that could be placed anywhere and don’t connect directly to the site.” He argues that the curved white façade, and deeply reflective windows in this design were inspired by the city’s rectangular city blocks and the adjacent circular park that sits just in front of the building. It also echoes the geometries of maritime architecture and nearby waterway. “You would really be hard-pressed to place this building anywhere else other than where it is, due to how it connects,” Bergmann says. “We like to think about a building beyond its borders and look at how it interacts with its neighbors and the open spaces around.” PRECAST SOLUTION Along with being visually inviting, the owners wanted the building to achieve LEED Gold certification, which led to several sustainability measures enabled by the use of precast concrete. The thermal benefits of the precast façade lowered projected heating and cooling costs, contributing 7 of the 60 total LEED points for overall energy performance. The panels were also created using local raw materials and recycled content less than 60 miles from the project site, minimizing the greenhouse gas emissions related to transport and adding more LEED points to the total. “While the concrete production requires a larger carbon footprint initially, it is a material that will have a long life span and can be recycled if needed,” Bosch adds. Finally, the precast concrete façade solved the fact that the building’s steel structure was designed to carry only lateral loads, which meant the precast concrete façade had to transfer the gravity loads directly through the precast concrete panels to the foundations. To achieve this, the engineers designed a structural steel system embedded into the precast concrete panels. Pockets were formed into alternating panels at the spandrel level to allow the interlocking of each panel during installation. “All the gravity loads are transferred from any given panel to the adjacent panel on either side until they reach the foundation,” Bosch explains. “In order to prevent a progressive collapse in the event that one connection should happen to fail, each panel also has a safety backup connection.” For video content and a project photo gallery, visit the 1200 Intrepid Project Profile on the MAPA website.

As the second month of the 2017 Major League Baseball season swings into full gear, the Mid-Atlantic Precast Association (MAPA) takes a look at the building of the Washington Nationals Ballpark project, featuring one of their producers, Universal Concrete Products Corporation. Nationals Park, located in Washington, D.C., is home to the Washington Nationals baseball franchise. It was the first professional sports venue to be awarded LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED is a building rating system that serves as a nationally-recognized standard for sustainable building design. The Nationals project was completed in 2008. Today, more than 15 professional sports venues have received LEED certification for new construction or existing building renovations. Project Overview In addition to achieving LEED certification, owners of the Nationals franchise wanted a distinctive look for their new ballpark that projected a contemporary, vibrant feeling while still meshing with the limestone of many of the institutional buildings of the city. To achieve this, designers created an exterior façade for the stadium that combines steel, glass, and architectural precast concrete panels. The precast concrete stadium components were produced by Universal Concrete Products Corporation, located in Stowe, PA. Precast Solution The panels, featuring a buff-colored texture that resembles limestone, interface seamlessly with the other materials. They were finished with a range of light to heavy sandblasting to create variety. White cement and local aggregates were used in the mix. The local materials and other attributes contributed to the precast concrete’s factors that helped the building achieve its Silver LEED rating. The panels were manufactured locally, minimized construction waste and provided other benefits. Overall, the building is one of the greenest public facilities in the nation.

Em meio ao aumento das importações de etanol por parte do Brasil, o ministro da Agricultura, Pecuária e Abastecimento, Blairo Maggi, recentemente recomendou à Câmara de Comércio Exterior (CAMEX) aumento de 16% da taxa do etanol estadunidense importado pelo Brasil. A votação em favor da volta do imposto foi, entretanto, adiada pela CAMEX. Com Estados Unidos ameaçando retaliação, grupos de interesse nacionais se dividem sobre o assunto. A nota do Ministério da Agricultura, Pecuária e Abastecimento (MAPA) para a CAMEX em defesa da tarifa teve como origem demandas de usinas nacionais de produção de etanol. A esse respeito, a União da Indústria de Cana-de-Açúcar (UNICA) posicionou-se a favor da necessidade de um aumento de 16%. Por sua vez, a decisão teve lugar duas semanas após usinas do Nordeste liderarem um movimento que exigiu aumento de 20%. A UNICA fundamentou a decisão em aspectos ambientais, considerando o etanol brasileiro menos poluente do que o estadunidense. A importação de etanol dos Estados Unidos, visto inicialmente como uma oportunidade de negócio, gerou excesso de oferta no mercado brasileiro. As importações foram multiplicadas por oito nos quatro meses até fevereiro de 2017, em comparação com o período anterior, e isso gerou pressão sobre os preços domésticos, que recuaram mais de 20%. Quase a totalidade do etanol importado pelo país provém dos Estados Unidos. Cabe destacar que, em 2010, a UNICA havia defendido a eliminação da tarifa de importação do etanol dos Estados Unidos. Em 2012, após uma queda abrupta do suporte político em favor do etanol (ver Bridges, v. 16, n.1) nos Estados Unidos, tarifas e subsídios foram eliminados.

In an environment where the government has been trying to attract multinational enterprises to 'Make in India', it is time to introduce initiatives or measures to signal a clear focus on making doing business in India easier. One such initiative has been the introduction of APA programme. Tax authorities in India have become increasingly proactive and vigilant while scrutinizing multinational company transfer pricing with Indian affiliates and correspondingly increasing the intensity of audits. The domestic appeal and dispute resolution process in India is slow and very time consuming. Therefore, the need for an alternative dispute resolution mechanism such as the Advance Pricing Agreement (APA) program, which provides a proactive opportunity for taxpayers to not only prevent future tax controversies but also to provide a rational basis for settling past disputes where an APA outcome may have a significant persuasive value, said Swati Aggarwal, Senior Manager (International Taxation) of Neeraj Bhagat & Co., a Chartered Accountancy firm based out of New Delhi. The various aspects of rules/ guidelines governing APA and certain operational matters relating to APA are analyzed below: What is an Advance Pricing Agreement (APA)? An APA is an agreement between a tax payer and tax authority determining the transfer pricing methodology for pricing the tax payer's international transactions with its associated enterprises (AE's) for future years. The methodology is to be applied for a certain period of time based on the fulfillment of certain terms and conditions. These programmes are designed to help taxpayers voluntarily resolve actual or potential transfer pricing disputes in a proactive, cooperative manner, as an alternative to the traditional examination process. An APA defines the arm's length price for a covered transaction. It is binding on the person in whose case the agreement has been entered into and on the Commissioner and the income-tax authorities subordinate to him [Direct Taxes Code (the 'DTC', Sec. 118(5)] unless there is a change in law or facts relating to the agreement. At present, a parallel mechanism exists i.e. advance rulings from the Authority for Advance Rulings (AAR). AAR is empowered to examine a prospective contract of a resident taxpayer with a non-resident in order to determine the taxability thereof. The main difference is that under the APA scheme, the tax authorities may determine/quantify the value of the international transaction or profits, whereas the Authority for Advance Rulings does not have a power to do so. In India, the Board limits the term of an APA to five years (DTC, Sec. 118(4)), as in China (3-5 years; (Implementation Measures of Special Tax Adjustments (Trial Version)[ the 'IMSTA'], Chapter 6, Article 49), rather than establish an expected minimum term, as in the United States (5 years; Revenue Procedure 2006-9 [the 'RP'], Sec. 4.07). Flexibility in the number of years may be a particularly important feature at the launch of an APA program, as APAs with long terms are sometimes necessary to accommodate a business cycle for a particular taxpayer, or for other reasons. An APA can be unilateral, bilateral, or multilateral. • Unilateral APA: An APA that involves only the tax payer and the tax authority of the country where the tax payer is located. • Bilateral APA (BAPA): An APA that involves the tax payer, associated enterprise (AE) of the tax payer in the foreign country, tax authority of the country where the tax payer is located, and the foreign tax authority. • Multilateral APA (MAPA): An APA that involves the tax payer, two or more AEs of the tax payer in different foreign countries, tax authority of the country where the tax payer is located, and the tax authorities of AEs. What are the key benefits of APA? An APA provides the following benefits: • Certainty with respect to tax outcome of the tax payer's international transactions, by agreeing in advance the arm's length pricing or pricing methodology(ies) to be applied to the tax payer's international transactions covered by the APA • Substantial reduction of compliance costs over the term of the APA • For tax authorities, an APA reduces cost of administration and also frees scarce resources. Consequently, APAs provide a win-win situation for all the stakeholders involved • Removal of an audit threat (minimize rigours of audit), and deliverance of a particular tax outcome based on the terms of the agreement Rollback provision: The recently notified APA Rollback rules also provide an option to the taxpayer to roll back the APA for prior four years to the same international transaction, subject to certain conditions.

In an environment where the government has been trying to attract multinational enterprises to 'Make in India', it is time to introduce initiatives or measures to signal a clear focus on making doing business in India easier. One such initiative has been the introduction of APA programme. The domestic appeal and dispute resolution process in India is slow and very time consuming. Therefore, the need for an alternative dispute resolution mechanism such as the Advance Pricing Agreement (APA) program, which provides a proactive opportunity for taxpayers to not only prevent future tax controversies but also to provide a rational basis for settling past disputes where an APA outcome may have a significant persuasive value, said Swati Aggarwal, Senior Manager (International Taxation) of Neeraj Bhagat & Co., a Chartered Accountancy firm based out of New Delhi . What is an Advance Pricing Agreement (APA)? An APA is an agreement between a tax payer and tax authority determining the transfer pricing methodology for pricing the tax payer's international transactions with its associated enterprises (AE's) for future years. An APA can be unilateral, bilateral, or multilateral. • Unilateral APA: an APA that involves only the tax payer and the tax authority of the country where the tax payer is located. • Bilateral APA (BAPA): an APA that involves the tax payer, associated enterprise (AE) of the tax payer in the foreign country, tax authority of the country where the tax payer is located, and the foreign tax authority. • Multilateral APA (MAPA): an APA that involves the tax payer, two or more AEs of the tax payer in different foreign countries, tax authority of the country where the tax payer is located, and the tax authorities of AEs.
