Brazil has introduced the concept of Small and Medium Entities (SMEs), and those companies who qualify as a SME benefit from simplified accounting and auditing requirements. Furthermore, keeping and submitting financial documents is simple through an online accounting system introduced in 2007.

Financial Statements

All Brazilian companies are required to prepare and file annual financial statements, which must also be published in the official Gazette. The obligation to have these statements audited depends on what category a company falls into, determined generally by its size, type of business and industry in which it operates. The annual financial statements should include a balance sheet, income statements, P&L, shareholders equity statement, changes in fiscal position and accompanying explanatory notes.
