Communications Minister Defends Tax Streaming Movie Services

In relying on Paulo Bernardo, the current Minister of Communications, streaming videos services as Netflix, Google Play Movies and NetMovies ( not dead yet ) run the risk of getting more expensive for Brazilians. It is that, in the opinion of the political, the sites should be taxed, as with pay-TV companies.

The idea, in fact, is the result of pressure from these companies. They argue that their services suffer tax rates and must display a minimum amount of domestic content, for example, and it is not fair that streaming companies are not subject to the same obligations.

Oscar Simoes, president of ABTA (Brazilian Association of Pay TV), goes further: for him, the lack of obligations makes streaming services not only collect taxes but also do not generate jobs in Brazil.

For Paul Bernardo, the solution to this impasse is the creation of a specific regulation for streaming services that includes, of course, tax rates. The way it is today, “is signed, paid with card [credit] International and this money goes all out. In a way, for this segment, we are a tax haven, “he explained the minister.

There is nothing definitive yet, but it should even be brought forward. Bernardo said he had asked the Ancine, the Ministry of Culture and Anatel a study on the issue. João Rezende, president of the latter, has already given the green light, “we have to sit with the IRS, ministries and Anatel to make a definition about it. Of course, we have to weigh the legal and regulamentais issues. ”

The minister himself acknowledges that the matter is complex. streaming services sell content in Brazil are therefore subject to taxation. On the other hand, transmissions tend to be controlled from other countries, which makes decision making as to fees and obligations.

It is certain that, whatever the established taxation, the bill will end up left to us, the consumers, either in the form of higher signatures, either in the form of more limited by feasibility issues services.
