For MEIs that operate in commerce or industry, R$1 is added. For service providers, it is R$5 more.

Entrepreneurs who combine these activities, pay attention! The increase will be R$6. Thus, in 2024, a general MEI pays between R$71.60 and R$76.60 per month.

Furthermore, depending on the activity, prices vary. They can range from R$170.44 to R$175.44. But, do you know when to pay? The DAS expires on the 20th of the month. And the payment options are varied:

Until when do I need to regularize or join Simples Nacional?

By January 31st, you must regularize or join Simples Nacional. This special taxation regime is aimed at small companies, with revenues of up to R$81 thousand annually.

Some discussions propose increasing this limit to R$144 thousand. For now, no changes for 2024.

If you have not exceeded the ceiling of R$81,000, you do not need to renew your registration. Otherwise, you will need to change your regime.

For new companies, adherence to Simples Nacional must be completed within 30 days of opening the CNPJ.

And pay attention, indebted MEIs: debts lead to automatic exclusion from Simples Nacional and Simei from January 1st.

What about the annual declaration?

In principle, every MEI must declare the previous year’s revenue by May 31st. Delay results in a fine. Also remember the obligation to issue invoices.

Since September 2023, the issuance has been through the national system, no longer via city hall websites.

Finally, it is clear that MEI Truck Driver is the class that pays the most, R$ 169.44 per month. And don’t forget: being up to date with your obligations is crucial.
