The Process of Closing a Business in Brazil


Closing a business in Brazil is much more complicated than you would expect.
The way the law stands at the moment (August 2010) the company has to remain open for more than one year after requesting closure to allow the company to be held responsible for any eventual labor law suit which may arise. For this period, besides lawyers to handle the dissolution of the company you will need a “caretaker” usually an accountant, to fulfill the requirements of the company during this period. It is important to notice that the company will probably still be liable to pay some taxes after the closure request has been made.
