Production sector manages with MS Government to reduce the ICMS rate for standing cattle

Given the current situation of the livestock sector in Mato Grosso do Sul, Famasul – Federation of Agriculture and Livestock of MS, Acrissul, MNP – Movimento Nacional dos Produtores and the Associação Sul-mato-grossense Novilho Precoce requested the Government of the State of Mato Grosso of the South measures to encourage the sale of standing cattle, ready for slaughter.

 

“We request a reduction in the rate from the current 12% to 7%. We assess that this drop in the tax paid on interstate transactions for live animals could increase competitiveness and reduce the impacts of the current economic scenario”, highlighted the president of the Famasul System, Mauricio Saito. The announced measure comes into effect on July 1st.

In addition to the Governor of MS, Reinaldo Azambuja, the following participated in the meeting: the Secretary of State for Strategic Management, Eduardo Riedel; the Secretary of State for Semagro, Jaime Verruck; the Secretary of State for Finance, Márcio Monteiro; the president of the Legislative Assembly, Júnior Mochi; and state deputies Mara Caseiro, Eduardo Rocha, Márcio Fernandes, Flávio Kayatt, Paulo Corrêa, Coronel David, Rinaldo Modesto, Onevan de Matos and Mauricio Picarelli.

 

 

For Saito, this demand will help the sector that is experiencing a situational issue of decreasing per capita consumption of beef, among other factors.

 

“In our State, a single business group, which accounts for 45% of slaughters, opted for payment only in installments, an option not accepted by producers in Mato Grosso do Sul. As a result, sales are reduced and causes an increase in the volume of cattle ready for pasture. With this request, in addition to enabling better flow of the finished product, we believe in increasing revenue from the State of Mato Grosso do Sul.”

The demand proposed by the productive sector was accepted by the Government of the State of Mato Grosso do Sul, initially, for a period of 90 days.

According to the president of the MNP, Rafael Gratão, the measure meets the needs of rural producers in MS. “With the arrival of winter there is a decrease in the supply of food to the animals, increasing the losses caused by the animals remaining in the pasture”, explains Gratão.
