The text running today in the room was changed by the proposal’s rapporteur, Marco Bertaioli. Prior to the change, federal revenue estimated the budget impact at R$66 billion in 2023. This is due to the increase in the Senate’s proposed limit for MEI only, at R$130.

However, with the changes that have taken place in the Chamber, the tax concession will probably be greater than that previously calculated by the revenue. Thus, the MP says, the net financial impact of the changes will be positive, as it will further formalize businesses and their workers.

On the other hand, the entities opposed to the proposal claim that the measure will not encourage formalization, in addition to increasing the primary deficit. Thus, the new model would place companies with greater economic capacity in a category that should be reserved for smaller companies, which pay less taxes.

Finally, due to changes in the text, the proposal must return for a new analysis by the senators, if approved by the plenary session of the House.
