Institutional and Government Relations
Institutional and Government Relations - a specialty of Perman Advogados Associados - are of paramount strategic importance for the various associations, companies, social and economic groups in the country. The focus on this field of action is not reduced to simple legislative monitoring. The objective is precisely to bring together and improve the relations between the Public and Private Sectors, stimulating interaction and dialogue.
Our work is done, first, by identifying the topics of interest to our customers that directly affect their activity. Then, we carry out the legal analysis of legislative proposals or those coming from the Executive Branch and its agencies, studies and positions are elaborated, in order to verify the possible impacts of the normative acts and the ways to increase or even mitigate them. Ahead, once the identification of the "stakeholders" is made, the phase of dialogue with the actors involved takes place, taking the arguments, studies and analyzes to the authorities and other people who can influence this decision making.
All of this is done looking for convergent paths, in order to strengthen the dialogue between sectors, with efficiency, transparency, ethics and security, always defending the interests of our customers.
The firm's consultative and contentious tax performance has the mission of ensuring that the tax burden is adequate to legislation and to new judicial and administrative interpretations. In this sense, we are attentive to legislative innovations and judicial and administrative guidelines on topics of interest to our clients.
The Firm has exemplary performance in terms of tax immunity, an important constitutional mechanism for encouraging and maintaining activities of relevant social and political aspect. The lawyer has an indispensable role in protecting this important tax benefit, in order to guarantee the observance of the immunity to the entities that are entitled to it, which is why we act in court to prevent charges that violate this important guarantee. In this sense, we have significant successes in ensuring the recognition of immunity and removing charges that do not comply with tax immunity, acting, in particular, in favor of non-profit entities, assisting in the granting of a Certificate of Social Assistance Charities, which ensures the withdrawal of social security contributions. In addition, we defend entities that are part of the so-called “S” System, preventing the collection of taxes and contributions and claiming the return of everything that was paid by these entities in recent years through the recognition of immunity and ample tax exemption.
