In a past press release, Ricardo Tosto talked about law 13.254, a project for repatriation of assets abroad. He agreed to project saying it was a positive partnership. The project of repatriation was to serve as a door opener for complex exchanges between Brazilian lawyers and foreign lawyers.
However, Ricardo Tosto noted that the project had to pass through a series of trajectory before its approval by the Congress. One of the things that had to be adjusted was the income tax rate and a fine that was initially put at 17.5%. The rate was then slashed to 15%, a value presented by Mr. Manoel Junior. The exchange rate that had been set for December 2014 had around 20% and not 30% as thought earlier. The founding partner of Leite Tosto e Barros also stressed on the partnership between national and international lawyers saying it is paramount for them to have laws that govern individuals who would not wish to have their resources open.
