Important: declare whether you hired an employee during the period;Before finalizing, review all data to ensure its accuracy. Confirm sending and save the receipt generated as proof of the declaration made.

Do not leave to the last minute!

Procrastinating can be a trap! If MEI does not deliver the DASN-SIMEI within the deadline, which ends on May 31st, it will face consequences.

Initially, a fine will be imposed, which can reach R$50.00. If payment is made within 30 days, the fine is reduced to R$25.00.

In addition to the financial penalty, failure to submit the declaration may lead to the suspension of the CNPJ, making it impossible to issue invoices and access social security benefits.

Even without billing, declare!

Yes, even if your MEI has not had any changes during the year, the declaration is mandatory. In these cases, you must send the DASN-SIMEI with zero billing.

This is a rule that guarantees its regularity and avoids future complications with the IRS. Not respecting it can generate serious problems.

DASN-SIMEI x IRPF Declaration

Furthermore, it is essential not to confuse the annual MEI declaration with the Personal Income Tax Declaration (IRPF). They are distinct processes, although both are important.

While DASN-SIMEI refers to your company, the IRPF declaration concerns your income as a citizen.

The cases also differ, as there are MEIs that do not need to declare income tax, due to annual revenue below the minimum of two salaries, but must submit the DASN-SIMEI, for example.

Finally, the DAS (Simples Nacional Collection Document) is essential for the MEI, as it consolidates the monthly taxes into a single bill. Includes federal, state and municipal taxes, simplifying the tax process.

Regular payment of DAS guarantees the maintenance of social security benefits, such as retirement and sickness benefits, in addition to keeping the company in compliance with tax obligations. Delays or non-payment can result in fines, interest and risks to the regularity of the business.
