The E-Social (Digital Bookkeeping System for Tax, Social Security and Labor Obligations) is the system created by Decree No. 8,373/2014 through joint action of some Federal entities with the main objective to unify in a single system the collection of information by storing them in a Virtual National Environment, in order to allow the participating agencies of the project, as far as the thematic pertinence of each one, to use such information for auditing/supervision/monitoring purposes for labor, social security, tax and for the calculation of taxes and social charges.



However, in April 2019, Provisional Measure No. 881 was published, which predicted the end of the e-Social System, with the aim of replacing it in 2020 with two simpler new systems, when it will begin a transition between the current system for the new systems.


The provisional measure needs to go through the approval of the Chamber of Deputies and the Plenary of the Federal Senate, which must occur until September 10, 2019.

The current Government informed that in the coming months, with the approval of the Provisional Measure, It will begin to publish regulations predicting the changes to be made in order to simplify the information required by the current system, such as unification of registration of employees under one number and the creation of the digital work portfolio.

Lastly, it is worth mentioning that as long as there is no new system for receiving the information sent to e-Social, even with the possibility of total replacement of it, Companies are still obliged to send information and collect taxes through the current system.
