This is a brief statement to guide and calm people down. We are in Brazil! Here, before creating the vaccine against the virus, you have to prepare the “alcohol gel” and the “mask” to sterilize the contaminated content and protect yourself from the spread of misinformation.
announcement unofficial about the Deactivation of the Siscoserv Page on 07/11/2020
We have been working on this since the early hours of the morning of 07/11, with an Official Protocol, through institutional channels, already registered with the Ministry of Economy and a letter to the Presidency of the Brazilian Foreign Trade Association (AEB).
We already have an institutional response from the authorities, achieved via AEB. We will also receive through the official Comex Responde channel and will post here the institutional response from the system's managing body.
We are building practical guidelines on how to proceed from now on, in order to preserve what is most important:
- The Compliance of our customers and partners
- The relationship of transparency about everything that happens with regard to compliance
- of accessory obligations (declarations)
- and of main obligations (taxes)
- about international service operations.
During the weekend, we will publish guidelines on the WTM do Brasil page, always based on reliable and officers, on how to carry out the fulfillment of obligations during the suspension period, as well as preparation for the year 2021.
We recommend that everyone remain calm, as it is a transition, which was already foreseen, but which, in times of a pandemic, is being conducted in a more accelerated way, which generates violations, even if involuntary, on the part of government, which are seeking to make life easier for entrepreneurs and also to make the union's cash viable.
alert about disinformation
We warn you not to rely on misinformation and positions that seek to capitalize on the merits of an already announced change. officially during the Enaserv 2019, in April of that year, by representatives of the SECEX and the Federal Revenue Service of Brazil, in addition to long-standing guidelines, which we explain still in November 2019, in a webinar on The Future of Siscoserv and the Electronic Service Invoice, in addition to lectures given at ENAEX 2019 and other events in Brazil, before the stop due to Covid.
Videos that can help you understand what is happening and what might happen
Anyone who wants to see the full video of ENASERV 2019 can watch the link below (it was recorded vertically, but you can understand perfectly):
It is worth noting that, after the video above, we learned during ENAEX 2019, through representatives of the system's managing bodies, that the then RFB representative who delivers the above lecture, today is no longer ahead of this obligation, having been transferred in September 2019 to another area of the body, long before the current changes.
This is due to a large and complex restructuring that the RFB made in the second half of last year, where names, positions and responsibilities of each server can be checked with a quick search on the Official Diary of the Union.
Therefore, the misuse of his name in lectures and events today, as unfortunately occurs, only demonstrates misinformation.
For those who want to understand the reason for the restructuring of the RFB, you can see in this video of july 2019 in the link below:

Responsibility in the Forwarded Information
Here at WTM do Brasil you will always see coherent, responsible information from official sources, obtained institutionally and without guesswork.
The provision of information from companies to the public authorities, as well as healthy relations between the private sector and the state, are a very serious matter, and they involve an already complex chain of service providers involved, of which we are even a small part. .
It is with this seriousness that we treat this initiative, aware that it generates new developments for companies and for the government itself.
Avoiding a Hasty “News Pandemic”
We want to prevent theCovidization” of such an important issue, out of haste or vanity to disseminate (mis)information, ends up generating a “news pandemic” that, in practice, can have more harmful effects than the “Virus”, which in this case is a suspension of deadlines, added to a deactivation of the means of compliance of a law that continues to be in force, but whose compliance, for the time being, is impeded.
It is true that this creates a series of questions to be asked to the public authorities, questions that, due to our effective role of responsibility and protagonism in this market, we are already developing, so that on the first business day we can take as an effective contribution so that the true authorities on the subject, through official and institutional channels, can respond, within the letter of the law, so that our customers and, consequently, the entire market, have legal certainty to know how to proceed with the fulfillment of their accessory and main obligations.
The Importance of accompanying the Authorities at Official Events
Finally, we recommend all that accompany the 2020 ENASERV which, if it was already important, now becomes fundamental for people and companies involved in Foreign Trade.
THE event will be on 07/28/2020 and will be attended by authorities who will be able to bring clarifications to the public.
We wish you all a great weekend and we recommend that you stay calm, as everything will be clarified, just have serenity. Here, when we are faced with a challenge, we roll up our sleeves and work to solve the problem, as we always have!
What I can assure you is that information about service transactions is something that tax and foreign trade authorities are certainly not willing to fail to receive, it is just a moment of transition in the midst of a pandemic.
It is part of the famous, “new normal”!
A cordial hug to all.
CEO of WTM do Brasil
