The expectation of the tax authorities, the authority of the country that controls tax payments, is that approximately R$ 8 billion will be paid in installments by approximately 400 thousand companies, micro-enterprises and small businesses. On the side of the Attorney General's Office of the National Treasury (PGFN), around 256 thousand companies will negotiate doubts that could reach R$ 16.2 billion. To neutralize the deficit of profits that the government will have with the regulation of the program, the government published on Wednesday, 27, a provisional measure that increases from 20% to 21% the CSLL, Social Contribution on Net Profit, paid by banks.
