– Value of the cargo (in R $)
– Sender data (Address, CNPJ / CPF)

Does the content declaration replace the Invoice?

Yeah, for it to be shipped, the cargo must be accompanied by an official document, which is: charge and or content declaration, therefore, in cases where current legislation does not require the issuance of the invoice, you must issue the content declaration.

You will be allowed to make the content declaration if you are part of the following “groups”

MEI – If it is a Individual microentrepreneur, will be exempt from issuing an invoice when the sale is made to an individual, in this way can issue the content declaration, however, when the sale is to a legal person, the only document accepted to accompany the shipment of your cargo will be the charge.

Physical person – A Physical person has no legal obligation to issue an invoice, whether the sale is made to a natural or legal person, so the natural person must issue the invoice of the content declaration and this will accompany your shipments.
