  13. 13. Treasury Regimes & Systems In many ways, for years. locally established enterprises have resorted to an assortment of tax and/or duty related benefits. Offered on an ongoing or temporary basis by governmental entities, promoting socio- economic development, these gave rise to a speciality known as tributary architecture, applied to numerous cross-functional corporate areas such as logistics, financial control, accounting, human resources, product and service operations, etc. This strategic management tactical resource has ensured exceptional financial and/or economic savings for those investing in generating manufacturing, processing and/or service rendering improvements in Brazil. Ultimately, all generate cross border prosperity as income is applied and distributed in an improved manner. To some extent, this managerial performance improvement tool is becoming increasingly digitalized in it’s operational application aspect, qualifying corporations with proactive, precise, intelligent implementations, an auditing simulator and/or deployment and monitoring capabilities, bringing about numerous additional competitive advantages. 13
  14. 14. Treasury Regimes & Systems The Brazilian tributary regime is ruled by 79 tributes and over 5 thousand laws, subject to the amazing average of 3 alterations at every two hours according to surveys performed by industry specialists. Within such a framework, it’s perfectly understandable that companies - despite resorting to specialized professional services on a routine basis - even then oversee opportunities, fail to make continued use (irrespective of occasional application) and/or simply incur in non-conformities, all of which impact margin contribution drivers. Amongst other preventive and corrective actions, currently, the local Government is implementing the Public Digital Bookkeeping System (SPED) to substitute traditional bookkeeping recordings, declarations and cross-checking routines for an electronic equivalent. Likewise, SINTEGRA – Product and Services Inter-State Operations Integrated Information System – was introduced to facilitate the inflow of information supplied by contributors to State Treasuries and to enhance data exchange at and between administrative bureaus emulating the European IVA model - with due tropicalization.- to safeguard constitutional federalism rulings. The quest is to ensure information of interest is relayed to treasuries at federal, state and municipal levels, tax departments, exchanged and cleared between the numerous public and private parties engaged in the Brazilian tax compliance and governance scenario. 14
  15. 15. Fiscal Auditing Software Anticipates the analysis that the Treasury Department undertakes applying both SINTEGRA and SPED legal rulings. This software verifies all tax-related documents issued upon abidance with these ancillary obligations.

  17. 17. SPED Fiscal & Accounting Fiscal Digital Bookkeeping (EFD) is a digital file that comprises a set of recordings concerning fiscal documents and other information of interest to state treasuries and the Brazilian Federal Tax Department, depicting the registers of tax settlings relative to operations and presentations accounted for by contributors. Therefore Fiscal SPED is no more than a file to be digitally signed and transmitted over the internet to the automated environment known as SPED. Likewise, Accounting SPED is a tailored system module, defined as substitute to traditional mercantile bookkeeping. Both have been vouched by IOB – one of the most accredited local organizations of this skill domain offering objective information - to which many members of the accounting community in Brazil resort to for guidance at times of change in current rulings. Objectives: Painting of Luca Pacioli, attributed to Jacopo de` Barbari. Source: Wikipedia Promote the integration of federal, state and forthcoming municipal treasuries; Standardize and rationalize the supply of information to regulatory and fiscalizing institutions (Central Bank of Brazil-BACEN, Stock Exchange Commission-CVM, Federal Tax Department-SRF and Superintendence of Private Insurance-Susep); Allow for shared access to digital registries placed by contributors by duly legally authorized parties; Speed the identification of tributary illegitimacies; Increase the contributor at fault’ s perception of risk; Social Benefits: Increment tribute proceedings /collections. Document storage cost reduction; Cost reduction upon compliance with accessory obligations; Information exchange between contributors as of a standardized layout; Reduction in time invested given the presence of fiscal auditors at the contributor’s premises; Simplification and speed-up of procedures subject to the control of the Union’s, State, Federal Capital and Municipal regulatory and treasury management institutions; Reduction of involuntary involvement in fraudulent practices; Formatting of information taxpayers relay to varied federal, regulatory and fiscalizing institutions; 17
  18. 18. Electronic Invoicing (NF-e) The Electronic Nota Fiscal (NF-e) solution interacts with major market ERPs, generating an XML format file according to the layout as defined in the Taxpayer’s Manual. Digital signatures are certified and auxiliary documents holding bi-dimensional barcodes (DANFE) are printed. Batch files and permit requests follow suit to Treasury so as to obtain authorization to issue NF-e`s. The solution thus expedites this complex local procedure that often bottlenecks logistics and on occasion impairs an entire SCM corporate process from following through flawlessly, in Brazil. Margins are ultimately seriously impacted and so is the economic scenario. Mitigating risks of this nature goes beyond corporate frontiers. It`s about being socially responsible locally and overseas.
