'Ending the Law of Good is condemning the country to delay', says association

In an article published by the newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo, on September 02, the president of the Brazilian Electronic Industry Association (Abinee), Humberto Barbato, criticized the return of charging PIS / Cofins on technology products. According to him, the country's economic crisis has already caused a drop of 17% in the sale of cell phones and 28% in the sale of computer products, and it tends to worsen with the return of the collection of these taxes. Barbato also guaranteed that such a charge will cause informality in the electronics sector to increase, making this action “a shot in the foot, as the significant drop in sales will prevent the government from meeting its collection goal” .
