Through processes with artificial intelligence and human intelligence, in its tax consultancy, ROIT Consulting found that the companies served were able to recover the amount of R $ 200 million in taxes unduly paid to the public coffers.
The most common taxes for optimizing the tax burden were: Corporate Income Tax (IRPJ), Net Income Social Contribution (CSLL), Social Integration Program (PIS) and Social Security Financing Contribution (Cofins). According to Caroline de Souza, CEO of the company specializing in the tax area, the agri-food and cosmetics industries, supermarkets and technology companies are well damaged by the high tax burden to which they are subject, combined with the complexity of Brazilian legislation.
As a result, refunds in the form of unduly paid taxes tend to be very meaningful and allow companies to invest in, for example, new hires, innovation and new asset purchases. The survey refers to the tax recovery carried out only in the year 2021.
“In fact, tax auditing and R&D spending have numerous benefits for businesses of all sizes and segments. The most noteworthy thing, without a doubt, is that the process collaborates to reduce the tax burden, in a lawful way, in compliance with all the rules of the business sector. This means that the plant ends up paying less taxes, but in full compliance with the legal regulations. In this way, more resources remain, which can be used in investments that end up favoring the expansion of the company on the market ”, comments Caroline de Souza.
Another advantage of the process, according to Caroline, is that, as a detailed calculation of each tax is made, this mechanism helps to recognize errors or misunderstandings of information in the tax department. company taxes are drastically reduced ”, guarantees the CEO of ROIT Consulting.
Contrary to what many taxpayers imagine, having a tax credit recovery process is not considered by experts to be something daring. Indeed, it is something precise and fundamental. “Since the audit is a detailed activity, carried out on the basis of current legislation, there is a lot of security in its execution. The risk, in fact, is not to do it. With the tax burden constantly increasing, a company can become economically impractical and often close its activities, due to taxes that end up consuming a large part of the company’s profit margin ”, emphasizes the specialist. “Without proper correction, taxpayers will always pay more than they owe, causing an avalanche of this negative cycle.”
