Companies try to postpone new rates from Anvisa

Associations of the sectors of personal hygiene, cosmetics and perfumes and cleaning products try to negotiate with the national health surveillance agency (Anvisa) an extension to the implementation of the new tariffs agency oversight, which are average increase of 190% from this Wednesday. The Interministerial Ordinance 701/2015, published in the "Official Gazette" on September 2, updates the accumulated inflation in recent years until June 2015. According to Anvisa, this is the first time that the value is readjusted since the Agency came into being in 1999. The Ordinance includes the increase in rates to other sectors, such as pharmaceutical, food and drinks. Each has its specificity about renewal, update, or delete. For the cosmetics industry, the authorization to operate is granted once and does not need to be renewed. For cleaning, the validity is one year from acceptance.
The Brazilian Association of personal hygiene, perfumery and cosmetics (Abihpec) said he was "surprised and puzzled" by the decision and sent letter to Board of Anvisa asking a meeting to discuss the matter. The budget forecast the sector is set in the last quarter of the year and the increase in rates of health surveillance surveillance was not the plan.
The Brazilian Association of cleaning products and related (Abipla) calls for the gradual implementation of the reset, with your home delayed in at least six months. States that are in the game increased informality in the sector and the reduction of product launches.
The two companies estimate that the impact will be greater for smaller companies. About 95% of the formal sector cleaning companies are micro, small and medium-sized. With lower revenues, suffer proportionately more with high fees and lose competitiveness for non-regulated products. "Until August 2015 have been regularized in Anvisa 2,532 companies, being the majority formed by small companies created from the initiative of individual entrepreneurs," recalls the Abihpec.
"The absence of proportionality of the values set with the cost of services rendered and within proper implementation can generate employment and breach of undertakings [...], as well as a reduction in the supply of products to the consumer," says letter from Abihpec, signed by President João Carlos Basilio.
The cleaning industry association says the timing is delicate, with high costs and falling consumption, and believes that the measure could worsen the informality. Each year, the loss in tax collections is 9% due to unregistered companies. If informality climb 5%, the drop in collection of taxes would rise to 9.3%. In the case of an increase of 10% of informal businesses, the loss would be 10% in taxes.
In the category of bleach, which moves R $ 1,56 billion per year, the informal sector rose from 42% in 2001, according to a study done by the Economic Research Institute Foundation (Fipe), to 55% this year, calculates the Abipla. Among the reasons are the cost of settlement and lack of supervision, says the organisation. For disinfectants, informality is 30.6%; for softeners, 15.2%; for liquid detergent, 7.7%, according to a study of Fipe.
The expectation of the Government is to raise, including the increase of other fees, such as market surveillance of real estate values, civil aviation and health supplements, $ 500 million more this year and $ 1.4 billion in 2016, according to the Ministry of finance.
