Understand that there are different taxes for each type of product and service, State, Municipal and Federal, etc ... But I understand that there are legal ways to reduce them is critical!

Those who choose to tax evasion, in addition to committing a crime, according to Law n. 4,729 / 1965, find a number of difficulties. We know it's difficult today for a business to survive without a computerized system, but no serious software provider allows, for example, the issue of a tax document to be optionally partially or, as would be responsible for evasion of crime.

From a tax point of view never forget to choose who to inform you properly, according to the field of activities you choose for your business. We obtained some professional opinions to tax cuts, that are:

Attach the company correctly: A point of convergence where all accountants are unanimous is that companies need to choose the most appropriate tax regime.

Analyze the tax benefits: After this analysis, It is possible to stay in Single, It will still be necessary to check the tax benefits provided for transactions, ie "if the taxpayer properly registered on your system operations with tax substitution, If there is a chance exemption or deferral of ICMS (in order to delete the DAS ICMS), and if there are situations out of single-phase products (where the PIS zero rate / COFINS is applied to the commercial establishment, Also excluding the percentage THE), "Explains Antonio Carlos Ijanc, Elias Accounting. Pedro Barros, MG auditing and accounting, shows numbers in this case for the state of Pernambuco. "A company that is in the range of 11.61% Simple, for goods purchased with the payment of ICMS tax substitution, could reduce the rate of 7.66%, "he exemplifies.

Evaluate dividing the company: "A more advanced option is to rethink the business structure, with a possible division of the business object in a group of companies responsible for each phase, with most interesting tax regimes for each, generating gains in one or more phase, "Suggests Enzo Gold of Contribute Associated Accountants. beyond what, Furthermore, liberal professionals, who often issue receipts taxed IR, You can now associate in the National Simple companies at a reduced rate. "In the case of law firms, for example, the initial fee is 4.5%, drastically reducing their tax burden ", Emphasizes Luiz Fernando Martins Alves, from Martins Alves Accounting.

Decrease the "hand labor": Now, if the company is real profit, "Reducing the management fees and implement free distribution of profits to partners could save up to 47.5% on the amounts withdrawn,"Marciléia says Criscuolo, from St. Vicente Accounting. This distribution can occur at any time, provided there is a specific contractual clause to address this possibility and profits are proven by the balance suspension and tax reduction (monthly balance in the annual option of taxable income). For this, "Writing accounting should be done with rigor", add the counter.

Browse options: beyond what, Furthermore, "It is necessary to check the options of Nacas, which also fit in the activity, in order to ensure a clearer and accurate tax, You can bring differences in the rates of PIS and COFINS on billings ", states Louis Monteiro, from Accounting RMonteiro. beyond what, Furthermore, "Startups that have a plan to generate losses in the early years can benefit from a future tax rebate at the time to start making a profit, if they are included in taxable income,"Explains Luciano Aleixo, of Aleixo & Silva.

Therefore, looking for professionals who pay attention to your company, participate in regular meetings, may issue explanatory reports and demonstrate the situation of your company, anyway, It is present! With good management, the business owner can save on taxes and have a better chance to grow, because with e-government, avoidance tends to become simply a loan with the highest interest of the planet (a fine of two to five times the value tax), and it can also be accompanied by imprisonment from six months to two years.
