In Brazil, statements consume 2600 hours of work per year, more than the double spent in Bolivia, according to a study

The complexity of the Brazilian tax system can be counted in hours. Survey of the World Bank in conjunction with PricewaterhouseCoopers indicates that the routines of tax information in the country require 2600 hours of dedication a year, far more than the usual in other Latin American countries, including Bolivia (1,080 hours), Venezuela (864 hours), Ecuador (654 hours) and Argentina (415 hours). On average, countries in Latin America and the Caribbean spend 382 hours a year on procedures related to the taxman. It is due to the fact that the procedures are complicated in Brazil. Per month, each company has six bonds between federal and state reports. They are mainly two: Statement of Financial-Economic Information and Statement of Income Tax Withheld (Dirf).

Excess of reports that need to be sent to governments reduce efficiency of businesses in the country

"Companies have to seek consultants to do this work and not to owe the government information. So, they pay to pay tax", says Julio Augusto Oliveira, partner at the office Siqueira Castro. The worst is that with so much paperwork, errors are recurring. "Everything can cause contingencies, which will turn into tax assessments," says Ana Cláudia Utumi, partner at the office Tozzini Freire. Compared to developed countries, such as France, the USA and Germany, the Brazilian situation is even more dramatic. In these countries, the tax routines consume, respectively, 132, 187 and 221 hours per year.
