After more than two decades of discussions, in 2023 the final text of the Constitutional Amendment n. 132/2023, known as the Brazilian Tax Reform on consumption was enacted. The reform significantly changes the current taxation of goods and services, substituting the indirect taxes in force by a dual Value-Added Tax (IVA). In addition, a new law was approved which introduced new Transfer Pricing rules aimed at aligning the Brazilian system with the OECD standard. Finally, Drillers faced significant challenges on the import of drilling rigs in Brazil due to new interpretation of the Repetro-Sped legislation by Brazilian Tax Authorities. This scenario brings Brazil into the spotlight again and the necessity to understand how to do business in the country.
