How to Handle Multiple Tax IDs in Brazil

In the popular Jason Bourne spy movies, the protagonist carries multiple passports, each with a different name and fake identity. 

While that may be par for the course for international spies, juggling multiple IDs can be much more complicated and burdensome for international companies trying to expand their business into Latin America. 

In Brazil, for example, international companies have to contend with multiple tax identification numbers when operating subsidiaries there. Just how many tax IDs exist for businesses in Brazil? Let’s take a look.    

The 5 Tax IDs for International Corporations in Brazil 

Understanding the various tax identification numbers in Brazil is essential to doing business in the largest economy in South America. However, it is not so simple! One corporation in Brazil typically has five — that’s right, FIVE — different tax ID numbers. 

The five tax identification numbers for businesses in Brazil are: 

  • CNPJ (Cadastro Nacional da Pessoa Jurídica or National Registry of Legal Entities)  
  • Suframa subscription
  • Municipal subscription
  • CPF (Cadastro de Pessoas Físicas or Register of Individuals) 
  • State subscription
