Tax management and approach
Suzano’s Tax Policy is based on the development of strategies to manage the tax burden, always in compliance with the current legislation. Suzano, as a multinational company with businesses in several countries and as a publicly traded company, has a transparent relationship with public agencies and sector associations, in order to create value and generate revenue for tax entities at federal, state, and municipal levels.
Suzano has terms of agreements/letters of intent with State entities always seeking to optimize the tax burden in accordance with the legislation. In connection with this topic, Suzano takes part in the tax committees of sector associations (IBÁ), industrial federations (FINDES, FIESP, FIEMA, among others) and specific groups for discussions on the subject, such as the (GETAP – Grupo de Estudos Tributários Aplicados (Applied Tax Studies Group)
Suzano’s tax strategy is in line with the Company’s current business and future plans. Only tax opportunities related to the business plan are evaluated. All tax decisions stem from the business strategy and are therefore additional effects to the results of the commercial and operational activities. In this case, cost reduction or tax impact is only one of several factors taken into consideration in investments and business decisions, not the main ones.
The Company’s fiscal strategies are monitored by the Board of Directors/Statutory Audit Committee as and when applicable. Any changes to the Tax Conduct Policy must be approved by the CFO. Suzano bases its Tax Conduct Policy on compliance with the tax rules in force in all the countries where it operates.
