Brazilian Law

Brazilian law permits write off 100% of the investment in forests as a deductible expense of the IR tax basis and social contribution.

The legal protection is in the law No. 8023, 1990, normative instruction from the IRS (SRF No. 257, 2002) and the regulation of income tax (RIR / 1999).

Each hectare produces about 800 forest credits

Every 100,000 forest credits represent R $ 7,760,000.00

Gains of up to 750,000.00 (the company's business model - can alter the final outcome)

In this gain is already computed the investment part of the final results, the sustainability project.

Sustainability Cycle

The preservation of the forest, the BMV model is a complete cycle of sustainable development.
