Auxadi Brazil

With a population of 211 million, Brazil is the leading economy country in Latin America. Its market size alone makes it an attractive destination for businesses looking to expand and is one of the top foreign investment destinations for Spanish people.

With a strategic position which simplifies access to Latin and South America, excellent value on exchange rates, and a large reserve of labour, it’s easy to see why Brazil is the ninth most attractive country in the world for FDI and ranks first for FDI investment in the Latin America and Caribbean region. The government has furthered foreign investment with aid and tax exemptions, especially for exports, while Brazilian states have reduced their local taxes and offered logistical support to certain companies.

Over the last 15 years, the country has progressively removed barriers for business, deregulating sectors, providing aid, tax exemptions and reductions, and even offering logistical support to certain sectors. In addition, social measures have actively encouraged the growth of the middle class, boosting the already huge local market. The main economic areas are financial services, telecommunications, gas, commerce, mining and real estate.

However, the complex tax system, as well as the heavy and inflexible labour legislation, make it difficult to do business in the country, so having trusted and knowledgeable partners to support you in the region is essential.

Why Auxadi is trusted as an expert outsourcing provider in Brazil

While the time it takes to open a business in Brazil is below the Latin American average, it can still take around 30 days, thanks to an expansive bureaucracy and rigid legislation. Non-resident partners must appoint a resident administrator and resident legal representative, and there are stringent rules around ultimate beneficial ownership.

While Brazil signed and adopted Hague Conventions in 2019, all documents must be translated into Portuguese and submissions from overseas are not permitted – all requests must be made directly to Brazil’s Central Authority, signed by them or a judge.

We have a team of experts in accounting, tax and payroll in Brazil to help make your life easier when you’re looking to grow and expand your business. From our office in São Paulo, we offer a fully outsourced solution, combined with our leading MySPV technology platform, to act as a seamless extension of your finance department.

Tax Specialists

Differing tax regimes are often more challenging than any other component of international business, and the Brazilian tax system is one of the most complex in the world.

Taxes are set and adjusted at federal, state and municipal levels, presenting an undeniably challenging business environment. Companies can find themselves investing almost 2,000 hours per year to prepare, file and pay the required taxes.

Indeed, Brazil has over 90 different taxes in place – ranging from Federal Industrialised Products Tax, to the Municipal Services Tax – and rates can vary according to taxable income. In addition, Brazil applies a higher tax burden to imported products and services, and the country does not follow OECD transfer pricing guidelines.

We’re experts in international taxation and our tax team in São Paulo can help you navigate complex tax requirements and obligations in the region, using our purpose built tax automation technology.

  • Tax compliance – covering multinational, federal, state, and municipal taxes
  • Official Books and Annual Accounts
  • Assistance with tax inspections and audits
  • Tax reviews and claims

Payroll Specialists

Brazilian payroll can be a minefield. While tax requirements are in constant flux, the country’s social security, employment laws, benefits and bonuses, are all dictated at multiple levels of government – from local to federal.

Brazil’s labour market is heavily regulated and restrictive. There are limits on numbers of foreign workers, and social security payments are required from both company (26.8-28.8%) and employee (8-11%).

Speak to our experienced and knowledgeable Brazilian payroll specialists to help you manage your payroll function.
