Brazil: RFB suspends automatic installment

Brazil`s Receita Federal (RFB) has suspended the automatic debits of installment payments due in May, June and July 2020 were suspended in compliance with Ordinance ME nº 201, of May 11, 2020. The Deadlines for the installments have been extended to August , October and December 2020, respectively, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

If the taxpayer is interested in paying the installments before the new due date, the Federal Revenue Collection Document (Darf) can be issued over the Internet or through the e-CAC Portal. The installment must be issued within the month that will be effectively paid.

The extended installments, which remain open until the new deadline will be debited together with the regular installments due in August, October and December, in the registered current account. The extended installments will continue to bear interest – Selic Rate – until the date of settlement.
