MEI contribution will rise in February

The monthly contribution made by the individual microentrepreneur (MEI), through the Simples Nacional Collection Document (DAS) will increase from February 2022.

With the increase in the minimum wage to R$ 1,212.00, the DAS value also undergoes an adjustment, since its calculation is calculated based on 5% of the minimum wage

In addition to the 5% of the minimum wage that is earmarked for Social Security, the Tax on the Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS) or Tax on Services (ISS) or even both, depending on the activity carried out by MEI, are included in the DAS. However, the amount of taxes will remain the same: R$ 1.00 for ICMS and R$ 5.00 for ISS.
