Samba, Futebol & Brazil's Tax System: A Webinar

Our July webinar focused on everything that's trending in Brazilian taxation. This live event also served as an introduction for our members to Latin America's largest economy's tax system. Our webinar took place on Friday, July 20th at 14:00 London BST.

Some of the questions tackled by our panelists included:

  • What kinds of taxes apply to income and consumption?
  • How does Brazil handle the taxation of royalties & dividends?
  • What are some of the challenges of tax compliance in Brazil?
  • Have there been efforts made by the government to simplify Brazil's tax system?
  • Do you think Brazil has a high tax burden on companies operating there? If so, what's necessary for this burden to be reduced?
  • How is Brazil handling the implementation of OECD-led initiatives such as BEPS and the Common Reporting Standard?
  • And many more!
