On January 25, 2022, OECD formally opened accession discussions with Brazil, following deliberation by its members and, in the Organization's words, "the progress made by Brazil since its first request for OECD membership" back in 2017. Beyond an alignment of the 12th largest economy in the planet (as per latest official GDP figures published by the World Bank) with member nations such as the United Kingdom, until this accession occurs the required convergence to OECD's policies and legal instruments shall imply an increased insertion of the Brazilian economy in global business and trade. However, several features of taxation in Brazil can be perceived as conflicting with practices within the OECD framework.
Please join us in our exam of possible implications to Brazilian tax rules resulting from this convergence process, focusing on those likely to impact tax ascertainment related to cross-border trade and services, v.g., transfer pricing regulations.
