The Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, meets again this Friday with businessmen to discuss the tax reform, in Sao Paulo.
According to the minister’s agenda, the meeting will take place at 3:30 pm at the ministry’s headquarters in São Paulo. Among the participants, the list mentions João Appolinário, from Polishop; Nabil Sahyoun, of the Shopping Center Tenants Association; Vander Giordano, from Multiplan; and Rafael Furlanetti, from XP Investimentos.
The special secretary of the Federal Revenue, José Tostes, and the special advisor to the minister Guilherme Afif Domingos are also taking part in the meeting.
At the end of last week, Guedes participated in a luncheon with several businessmen in São Paulo, where he assured, according to a source, that any distortions in the tax reform will be corrected.
The opinion on the Income Tax (IR) reform presented on Tuesday provides for a reduction in corporate taxation, but maintained the 20% rate on dividends as in the government’s original proposal.
The next day, the minister said he is not “very concerned” about the potential loss of revenue of 30 billion reais with the reform proposal, arguing that the measure will be offset by the return of the country’s GDP to previous levels of the pandemic, which will lead to an increase in collection of 100 billion reais.
