Ministry of Economy intends to evaluate taxes on telecommunications

It is not new that one of the most criticized aspects in the country for the expansion in the provision of telecommunications services is the high tax burden demanded by the governments and, consequently, passed on by the operators as part of the final price to the consumer.

Just to get a sense of how much is paid only in taxes on these services, only last year, the Brazilian paid approximately R $ 65 billion, this amount being considered the highest in the last 20 years, according to a survey conducted by SindiTelebrasil.

In this sense, Diogo Mac Cord, secretary of Infrastructure Development at the Ministry of Economy, revealed during a live held last Friday (07/10) that the Ministry of Economy will hire a consultancy to assess the effects of taxation in the sector.

Also according to the secretary, this is a step that aims to rationalize sector taxes and will be evaluated by the Telecommunications Secretariat of the Ministry of Communications, with the participation of the National Treasury and the Federal Revenue, and should be discussed in the tax reform.

No less important, the secretary also pointed out that it is important to articulate with other federal entities (read the states) so that there is no frustration in local revenues, something that occurred when the electricity tariff was reduced, which stimulated the increase in the ICMS to offset the reduction in the tax base for collection.

“When there was a reduction in the value of the electricity bill a few years ago, the curious thing was what happened on the day after, that is, it lowered the electricity tariff by about 20%. What several governors did was to raise the ICMS tax rate because, as it reduced the calculation base, they did not want to lose the collection ”

Still according to Mac Cord, it is necessary to overcome a series of regulatory impediments, which discourages investors from investing and monetizing an asset, something that ends up creating impacts on the country’s economy and development.
