Sebrae and the MPE Parliamentary Entrance rejoice achievements of small companies within the Legislative

in Brasilia, Sebrae and the Mixed Parliamentary Front for Micro and Small Enterprises met to celebrate the legislative advances achieved after intense articulation both in the Chamber of Deputies and in the Federal Senate. The meeting was marked by the collective commitment in defense of small businesses in the country, which represent 30% of the Brazilian GDP and 99% of all companies in Brazil.

In the last 4 years, the National Congress approved 10 laws that directly benefited small businesses, such as the creation of the National Support Program for Microenterprises and Small Businesses (Pronampe), the institution of the Legal Framework for Startups and Innovative Entrepreneurship and the institution of the Debt Payment Rescheduling Program under the Simples Nacional (Relp).

During the meeting, the president of Sebrae Nacional, Carlos Melles, thanked the parliamentarians of the Front for their longstanding commitment to defending micro and small companies. He recalled the importance of instruments such as the General Law of MPE and the Individual Microentrepreneur (MEI), which are fundamental for the promotion of entrepreneurship in Brazil. Melles also took the opportunity to emphasize the importance of small businesses for generating income and employment in the country. “We are ending this year with 2.5 million formal jobs in Brazil, with 80% of jobs generated by micro and small companies. It is the small businesses that provide social support through employability”, stressed Melles.

On the occasion, Senator Jorginho Mello, who served as president of the MSE Joint Parliamentary Front in recent years, took stock of the main laws approved, such as the creation of Empresa Simples de Crédito (ESC), the creation of MEI Caminhoneiro and the inclusion of Sebrae in the Simples Nacional Managing Committee (CGSN). He claimed that Pronampe saved 10 million jobs in the country during the pandemic and insisted on defending Simples Nacional. “We get upset when someone says that Simples is tax waiver. Simples is a tax regime that is in the Federal Constitution and no one can deny that ”, he declared.

The licensed senator, who was elected governor of Santa Catarina, received a tribute from Sebrae, through a plaque and a medal commemorating the institution’s 50th anniversary. Jorginho Mello is the author of at least five bills, considered to have a high impact on MSEs, which are still being processed, such as PLP 126/21, which provides for the update of the General Law of MSEs, which brings, among other points, the increase in the maximum billing limit for Simples Nacional and the extinction of Substitution Tax also for Simples, as well as PLP 127/21, which makes it optional for states to adopt state sub-limits for ICMS collection purposes. Currently, it is mandatory to apply sub-limits of R$ 1.8 million and R$ 3.6 million according to the state’s participation in the National GDP. The two bills are awaiting an opinion from the respective rapporteurs at the Economic Affairs Commission (CAE) of the Federal Senate.
