Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and Latin America. At 8.5 million square kilometres and with over 211 million people, Brazil is the world’s fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous.

Chief Executive Officer and Head of Wealth Planning at Ripol Alliance and Head of International Tax and Wealth Planning at Ronaldo Martins & Advogados.

We are developing a new approach in legal services focused on the needs of Ultra High Net Worth individuals. It provides an indisputable range of wealth management services that addresses the client’s global needs through personally managed services, achieving exceptionally high client satisfaction.

Within a context as complex as the Brazilian Tax System, in which we have a diversity of incidences with many taxes, the need to understand the impacts of taxation on business arises. Thus, companies should ensure they have the correct incidence and payment of taxes in their activities – whether in industry, commerce or services, as well as have Tax Compliance programs and their Tax Indicators, so that they can have a more holistic view of tax cost in their business relationships. In this regard, Tax Compliance programs and their Indicators can become great allies in the search for tax efficiency of processes, and in the mitigation of financial and property risks.

Ronaldo Martins & Advogados acts in the advisory, consulting, national and international tax planning area, through preventive analysis of tax procedures, aiming at detecting tax contingencies, analysis of accessory obligations, tax assessment and payment, tax credit recovery, elaboration of special regimes, consultations and guidance on corporate issues, corporate acquisitions, incorporations and mergers, corporate and family reorganisations – succession and corporate planning, aiming at mitigating, optimising and/or reducing the tax burden of companies. The firm’s experience is in evaluating the entire tax impact on the business chain, analysing not only the tax incidence on the final activity, but also on suppliers, the corporate structure, operating systems and internal controls of the company, adding value to the business as a whole.
