Brazil: Companies in Pernambuco and Distrito Federal – SPED

With the publication No. . 126 from August 30th, 2018, the PORTARIA SF has established the mandatory participation in the SPED process for companies located in Pernambuco. Consequently, these companies will now have to submit EFD-ICMS/IPI reports.

At the same time, the new regulation relieves the companies of their previous duty to monthly submit SEF and eDoc files as well as SINTEGRA (Information about interstate transactions with goods).

The new regulation becomes effective according to the following timeline:

  • From September 2018 for all companies participating in the Proind program (Programa de Estimulo a Industria do Estado de Pernambuco)
  • From July 2019 for Distrito Federal (further handling of the digital book keeping – Livro Fiscal Eletronico – LFE/ Ato Contepe – for far unknown)
  • From August 2019 for all companies that pay ICMS und IPI taxes
  • From Oktober 2019 for all other companies
