see which professions are no longer in the catalog

Every year there are some important changes to the MEI, including the addition or exclusion of professions that the catalog covers.

If you are thinking about venturing into the world of entrepreneurship as an Individual Microentrepreneur (MEI) in 2024, it is crucial to stay up to date with the new rules that are coming.

The Simples Nacional Management Committee (CGSN) updated the list of activities permitted for MEIs, bringing significant changes that could affect many future entrepreneurs.

Therefore, before formalizing, it is a good idea to check the official list of professions that are still available to micro-entrepreneurs. Let’s go?

Professions off the MEI radar

Initially, the list of professions permitted for MEIs was revised, excluding some activities. Among the professions that will no longer be eligible to register as MEI are poultry slaughterers, tire aligners, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) traders and more.

Highly qualified professions such as administrator, architect, accountant, and others were also removed from the list, restricting the options for those looking for the flexibility and benefits offered by the MEI regime. To check the complete list, visit:

The importance of updates

In short, these changes highlight the importance of staying up to date with government regulations that affect microentrepreneurs.

The MEI regime continues to be an excellent option for many, offering social security benefits and tax simplification, but it is essential to ensure that your activity falls within the permitted categories.

Entrepreneurship in focus

The trend of entrepreneurship has grown exponentially and the MEI regime has been a great facilitator for many Brazilians who dream of having their own business.

In this sense, with the new rules, some may need to reconsider or adapt their plans. It is essential to seek reliable information and, if necessary, professional guidance to navigate these changes and ensure a safe path to success for your business.

MEI, don’t forget to pay the DAS!

Furthermore, the Simples Nacional Collection Document (DAS) is a monthly invoice that MEI must pay to keep its business regularized.

This payment is essential, as it consolidates all taxes that MEI owes to the government, including Social Security, ICMS and ISS.

The value is fixed and affordable, calculated to make the entrepreneur’s life easier, ensuring that they have access to social security benefits such as retirement, sickness benefit and maternity leave, in addition to maintaining the business’s fiscal regularity.

What is the value of monthly MEI contributions?

In 2024, with the increase in the minimum wage to R$1,412, the contribution to the general MEI increased from R$66 to R$70.60, corresponding to 5% of the minimum wage.

Furthermore, for MEI truck drivers, the value increased from R$158.40 to R$169.44, which represents 12% of the minimum wage.

These contributions are essential to guarantee benefits such as retirement, sick pay and maternity leave, maintaining the regularity and social security rights of the entrepreneur.

Pay attention to the delivery of DASN-SIMEI

Finally, the Simples Nacional Annual Declaration for the Individual Microentrepreneur (DASN-SIMEI) is an annual obligation of the MEI, in which he must declare the revenue of his business from the previous year.

This declaration is crucial to maintain fiscal transparency and prove that the MEI is within the permitted annual gross revenue limit, which is currently up to R$81,000.00.

Sending the DASN-SIMEI correctly and within the deadline avoids fines, keeps the MEI regularized and ensures the continuity of social security and business benefits linked to this category.
