Ceará warns of evasion of ICMS related to
Ceará Finance Secretariat, 16/12/2004
The Secretariat of Finance of Ceará this month sent an official letter to the State's points of sale alerting that the ICMS on the products of Cervejaria Schincariol distributed in the State "is not being paid". As the tax substitution institute provides, the industry has to collect the tax throughout the production chain. According to CATRI (Tax Administration Coordination), all Schincariol distributors in Ceará, associated with Fenadibe, are not in compliance with the current tax legislation (art. 431 paragraph 3 of Decree nº 24.569 of 31/07/1997). The letter alerts the State's points of sale that the purchasers of products from Schincariol's distributors (listed below) are subject to the ICMS charge.

According to a study by Sindicerv (National Union of Beer Industries), tax evasion in the beer sector diverts about R $ 720 million from public coffers, equivalent to 15% of the entire collection.

Stability and clarity are minimum requirements for law enforcement. This is not what you see in Brazil. Standards are changed frequently, often with deplorable technical quality. The interpretation given to the norms also changes continuously, without plausible justification.
