MEIs in Brazil
According to data from the Ministry of Economy up to May this year, 65% of individual micro-entrepreneurs were in default. Which represents an increase of 14 percentage points compared to May 2018, when 51% were in this situation.
Currently, Brazil has just over 12 million active individual micro-entrepreneurs in Brazil, that is, the measure of including defaulters in the Union’s active debt could harm the lives of almost 8 million workers and their families.
In addition to being included in the Union’s overdue debt, workers also lose their right to social security benefits and may have their CNPJ terminated.
