Businessmen and entities from sectors contrary to the pillars of the tax reform report by Deputy Aguinaldo Ribeiro (PP-PB) will meet this Wednesday (5) with the vice-president of the Chamber, Marcelo Ramos (PL-AM). They will take advantage of the meeting to launch a movement that they called the National Pact for Tax Reform.
The group, which has the support of 120 entities and economists Marcos Cintra and Everaldo Maciel, has been meeting with the vice president of the Chamber to press for the proposal of Simplifica Já, that Senator Major Olímpio, who died with Covid last month, has already had been defending in Congress.
The aspect of the proposal in which they want to shed light at the moment is the standardization of ICMS and ISS, but the main basis of the group’s idea is the exemption from payroll, a change that would boost the generation of jobs, according to them. This exemption would be sustained with the redemption of a tax on financial transactions along the lines of the old CPMF.
Gabriel Kanner, president of the Brasil 200 entrepreneur group, which organizes the movement, says that the model of the first phase of the reform sent by the government, to merge PIS and Cofins with CBS (Contribution on Goods and Services), worries the group because it has very high rate. “It would break much of the service sector. It will suffer a lot of resistance,” he says.
