How does the minimum wage increase the mandatory contribution for those who are MEI?

With the minimum wage established at R$1,412.00 since January 2024, the Simples Nacional Collection Document (DAS-MEI) invoices due on February 20 of the same year have a new value.

This occurs because the monthly MEI contribution corresponds to 5% of the current minimum wage, which results in an increase in the amount to be paid.

Until the end of 2023, MEIs were accustomed to paying a monthly contribution of R$66.00. However, with the increase in the minimum wage, this value was adjusted to R$70.60.

Therefore, it is essential to highlight that this contribution encompasses not only the social security obligation, but also the possibility of accessing a series of benefits, such as:

Retirement; Maternity benefit; Sickness benefit; Death pension for dependents; and Prison aid.

They are the ISS (Service Tax), worth R$5.00, and the ICMS (Tax on Circulation of Goods and Services), which corresponds to R$1.00. These taxes are essential for the regularization of MEI activities and may vary according to the entrepreneur’s field of activity.
