Did you know that Brazil is one of the countries with the most challenging tax regulations even with NetSuite? In general, in Latin America, achieving full tax compliance can be quite a challenge as each country has its own regulations, and not following them to the letter can lead a company into serious legal trouble.
Luckily, at LatamReady we have a solution that will help NetSuite-using companies to understand and respond to all these requirements properly, in order to operate with legality and transparency. It will be like working hand in hand with a lawyer/accountant specialized in tax compliance in Latin America!
Is doing business in Latin America complicated?
Many international companies have found in the Latin American market a great opportunity for expansion and growth.
However, many of them operate under a lot of pressure and are tempted to resort to unconventional practices to reduce costs. This can have negative consequences not only for the government, but also for the company, which could find itself in serious legal trouble.
In view of this, Latin American governments have become much more creative in the fight against tax evasion to ensure that their revenues are affected as little as possible by these practices.
Brazil: A true challenge
One of the countries with the most complicated and demanding tax mechanisms is Brazil.
In 2006, the Brazilian government created the “Public Digital Accounting System”: an innovative system to digitize and automate tax collection.
Under this system, every invoice made and submitted for review is required by law to be formatted in XML. This allows the tax authorities to:
Assess the legal status of the two parties involved in a transaction.
Check whether invoices were issued accurately and whether taxes were applied and calculated correctly.
After all this information has been reviewed and approved, the invoice is authorized and receives an official number. With this data, the government can know how much tax revenue there is for each transaction and collect taxes.
This process may sound simple, but it is more complex than it sounds… otherwise these types of standards would not have been created. That is why it is important to have specialized partners with up-to-date local knowledge to ensure that your subsidiaries comply with the regulations in each country.
