After all, what are the tax obligations of MEIs?

In principle, MEIs must comply with some tax obligations, including the monthly payment of the DAS (Simples Nacional Collection Document), which includes taxes such as ISS and ICMS, depending on the activity.

In addition, it is mandatory to complete the Simples Nacional Annual Declaration (DASN-SIMEI), informing the previous year’s revenue.

MEIs must also keep records of income and expenses and issue an invoice when the client is a company or requires the invoice.

Deadline for MEIs is coming to an end

MEIs excluded from Simples Nacional have until January 31st to request reclassification into the tax regime.

The Federal Revenue issued more than 393 thousand exclusion terms between July and October 2023, mainly for MEIs with debts to the National Treasury.

To give you an idea, by the end of December of the same year, around 374 thousand MEIs were excluded due to lack of regularization.

How to avoid losing your MEI registration?

Firstly, to avoid losing their registration for good, MEIs removed from the scheme must resolve their issues and request a new membership by the end of January.

If they miss this deadline, they will have to wait until the beginning of next year to return to the system, leaving them out of Simples Nacional until 2025.

Object if there is improper deletion

Furthermore, MEIs who find undue debts in the exclusion term can contest the decision by opening a digital process and attaching supporting documentation.

Therefore, if the challenge is accepted, the MEI will have its exclusion canceled and will automatically return to the regime.

Other consequences of not being regular

In short, by not paying the DAS, MEIs face several consequences in addition to exclusion from Simples Nacional.

These include the incidence of fines and interest on the amount owed, difficulties in obtaining loans and credits due to tax irregularities, the possibility of being registered in active debt and consequent tax enforcement.

Furthermore, non-payment may lead to the suspension of social security benefits, such as retirement and sickness benefit, and limit the issuance of negative debt certificates, essential for participating in tenders or carrying out certain commercial transactions.

DASN-SIMEI date is approaching

It is worth noting that the DASN-SIMEI must be delivered by May 31st of each year. This declaration is essential to maintain the regularity of the MEI, and it must include the total gross revenue obtained in the previous year.

Remembering that failure to comply with this obligation may result in fines and complications with the Federal Revenue Service.

Government will launch ‘Desenrola Para Empresas’

The Minister of Entrepreneurship for Microenterprises and Small Businesses, Marcio Fran├ža, indicated that a new version of "Desenrola para MEIs" should be launched in the first quarter of 2024.

In short, this debt renegotiation program can offer a faster solution for indebted MEIs.

How can MEIs participate in this opportunity?

Desenrola para Empresas is a debt renegotiation program aimed at micro and small companies, including MEIs.

Therefore, to participate, MEIs must verify their eligibility with the program, normally available through government platforms or partner banks.

The program offers special conditions for paying off or paying off tax debts in installments, helping micro-entrepreneurs to regularize their tax situation and keep their businesses active.
