IT and ICT tax exemption under discussion

Organizations and Brazilian agencies advocate the maintenance of taxes exemptions for IT and ICT

Brazilian associations, agencies and companies put themselves together in favor of the maintenance of the current rate of 2% incidence of employer social security contributions introduced by Provisional Measure 669/2015.

 The law, introduced in 2011 and adopted in December 2014,  helped many companies providing Information and Communication Technology Services (ICT), as well as those that offer call center services and the hospitality industry framed in the subclass 5510-8 / 01 of the National Economic Industrial Classification (SIC 2.0). Still, taxed at a rate of 1 % in the same period, companies that manufactured products classified under the Tax Incidence Table on Industrialized Products (TIPI), approved by Decree No. 7,660 / 2011, in the codes contained in Annex to Law No. 12,546 / 2011, inserted by Provisional Measure No. 563/2012.

Players of these sectors understand that tax revenue waiver, including employer social security contributions, income tax of individuals and FGTS is an essential factor contributing to fiscal balance and to increase national savings: decisively helped to increase the competitiveness of Brazil, promote growth, create quality jobs and high pay, foster creativity in employment relationships and reduce the competitive disloyalty on the companies that faithfully follow the rules of labor law.
