Didn't realise we had so many experts in South American politics on here while you've managed to nail my mate down to a tee; fascist, after a tax break and "nice". To be clear, my friend didn't express any affection for Bolsanero. He just stated that the overseas coverage of him had been exaggerated and that the alternatives were worse. This shouldn't be too much a leap of the imagination for anyone with even basic understanding of Brazilian politics with over a third of the members of congress under investigation for corruption.

As for wanting a tax-break, there are something like 13,000 different taxes for business across various layers of the Brazilian government which leads to a) business being unable to even calculate what they owe and to whom b) tax authorities being run as a mafia and c) a disastrous economy which contributes to the poverty so many on here are obviously concerned about.

the forum barstool experts have a catch all child like left or right explanation to everything. And it's shaped exclusively from UK or US perspective.

This man knows.

I worked for a couple of years on some Brazilian oil assets.

Brazil is notorious for being the worst country for taxes.

Imagine an oil tanker going from off the coast of Great Yarmouth to Scotland.

Now, imagine it has to deliver tax returns to Norfolk, Suffolk, Northumberland, the government, Scotland, Perthshire etc.

It is absolutely stifling.

I remember last year we had 2 accountants and 3 SAP experts trying to input an invoice correctly -the combination of taxes was too complicated and we only managed to get it in because we knew a guy whose wife had worked in Brazil and had come across that same thing.

The problems we had with Mastersaf ffs.

Add on ridiculous tax audits, random fines - it really is kill the dwarf and unlock the treasure to do Brazilian tax correctly.

As opposed to your unique and nuanced view from outside the mainstream?



What a fanny.

It's not unique by any means. And I've a lot to learn. But to be fair it's a far broader view than your Middleton deep perspective. Tbf.

Can't learn much if you never move out of your home town.

Last thing I want to do is patronise. But I'm out there in the ocean. I know I'm not the biggest fish. I've seen sharks. Dolphins. Sea horses.

You're the brightest goldfish in a dull puddle with access to a Seamus Milne blog.
