Brazilian tax reform to be debated by authorities and experts in Sao Paulo
The seminar titled Discussing the Tax Reform: equity, innovation and competitiveness will be held on September 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the FGV 9 de Julho auditorium, in Sao Paulo (Rua Itapeva, 432, Térreo. Bela Vista, Sao Paulo/SP). Organized by FGV Projetos and supported by Sebrae Nacional, the event will bring together authorities and experts to discuss the challenges of Brazil’s current tax system and share different outlooks on the Proposed Constitutional Amendment (PEC) regarding the Tax Reform.
The event’s opening ceremony will be led by the president of Sebrae Nacional, Guilherme Afif Domingos, and the Control Director of FGV Projetos, Antônio Carlos Kfouri Aidar. The seminar will be divided into three panels: “Designing a new tax system”, “Tax Reform, Equity and Innovation” and “Tax Reform and Competitiveness”. The panels will feature lectures and comments by experts.
Among the guests are the Brazilian Minister of Finance, Eduardo Refinetti Guardia, congressman and drafter of the Tax Reform PEC, Luiz Carlos Hauly, and the president of Insper, Marcos Lisboa.
A special edition of the FGV Projetos Journal on the subject will also be launched during the event. The journal will feature an interview with former Brazilian Revenue Service auditor, Jose Roberto Carneiro da Cunha, a testimony from congressman Luiz Carlos Hauly, and articles from the National Treasury secretary of the Brazilian Ministry of Finance, Mansueto de Almeida, and FGV’s Brazilian Institute of Economics (IBRE) researcher José Roberto Afonso.
The publication compiles different takes on the available paths to tax reform, presenting the key challenges to be overcome and changes that can be made to Brazil’s current tax system. In the preface, FGV’s Vice President, Sérgio F. Quintella, comments: “Brazil’s tax reform is important not only to drive the economy forward, but also to strengthen the country’s position amidst a globalized international scenario, which relies on an increasingly transparent and well-coordinated financial system, in order to attract modern and high-tech multinational corporations”.
