The ordinance implements provisions of the stamp tax law (Código do Imposto do Selo) and provides:

  • Filing a monthly stamp tax declaration is required by all taxpayers that conduct transactions that are subject to the stamp tax (even if the taxpayer is exempt from paying the stamp tax).
  • Remittances of the stamp tax made to the government will require and generate a proof of delivery and a single collection document.

These measures are effective 1 January 2020.
