VoIP services exempt from VAT and service tax - one more chapter in Brazilian software taxation

Valor, a Brazilian newspaper, has published that two provisional decisions by judges in São Paulo have exempted provider of Voice over IP services (skype, etc.) from state VAT and Municipal City Tax.

Portuguese link here. 

Software taxation in Brazil still does not have clear boundaries (check, for example, this article). Many things are uncertain, either due to lack of codified legislation or due to lack of jurisprudence.

I will monitor this lawsuit. Let's see how the court of appeal rules on this. Could be good news.
