How does MEI taxation work?

Before we dive into the changes, it is crucial to understand how MEI taxation works. MEI is a simplified business category that allows small business owners a reduced tax burden and a simplified payment process.

Within the Simples Nacional regime, MEI pays a fixed monthly amount, which includes taxes such as INSS, ICMS and/or ISS, depending on the activity carried out.

This model offers benefits such as social security coverage, exemption from company registration fees, and simplified tax payments.

And now? What can entrepreneurs do?

Entrepreneurs whose activities were excluded from the MEI face a new challenge in reporting to the Government.

They will need to adapt, looking for alternatives such as falling under other tax regimes, such as Presumed Profit or Real Profit, which could mean an increase in the tax burden and more complexity in tax management.

Despite the impact, there are paths for entrepreneurs. One option is to change the business focus to activities still permitted in the MEI.

Another is to seek accounting advice to better understand the tax and administrative implications of migrating to another business category. It is also possible to explore new business opportunities within current limitations.
