Pending tax measures include possible income tax, indirect tax changes

Several tax proposals are currently pending consideration in Brazil. 

  • Proposed income tax changes would, if enacted, revise the tax taxation of dividends, reduce the corporate tax rate, and make income tax changes for individuals.
  • Another proposal would replace the current system of indirect taxes (i.e., IPI, PIS, ICMS, COFINS, and ISS) with a new goods and services tax (Imposto sobre Bens e Serviços—IBS) or with a related indirect tax social contribution (Contribuição Social sobre Operações com Bens e Serviços—CBS).
