Enel presents monthly in the energy bill the statement of charges included in the invoice and the cost of electricity consumption. In addition to the tariff, the Federal, State and Municipal Governments respectively add to the energy bills the PIS/COFINS, ICMS and Public Lighting Contribution, as Resolution 2.377, of March 14, 2018.
The Social Integration Programme (Programa de Integração Social, PIS) and the Contribution for Financing Social Security (Contribuição para o Financiamento da Seguridade Social, COFINS) are charged by the Union to maintain programmes targeting workers and to fund the Federal Government’s social programmes. The rates are 1.65% (PIS) and 7.6% (COFINS) and are calculated non-cumulatively. This, the average rate of these levies varies according with the volume of credits calculated monthly by concessionaires and with PIS and COFINS paid on costs and expenses in the same period, such as the energy acquired for resale to consumers.
Composition of basis of calculation in the reference month:
- Total revenue - Total credits = Basis of calculation of contributions to PIS/PASEP and COFINS
Calculation of PIS/PASEP rates in the reference month:
- 1.65% X PIS/PASEP basis of calculation = PIS/PASEP amount
- Effective rate = Calculated PIS/PASEP amount + for total revenue
Calculation of COFINS rate in the reference month:
- 7.6% X COFINS basis of calculation = COFINS amount
- Effective rate = Calculated COFINS amount + for total revenue
Tax over Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS). Stipulated in art. 155 of the 1988 Federal Constitution, the tax is imposed over operations relative to the circulation of goods and services and it is of the competence of each State and the Federal District, which is why rates vary.
The Contribution for Defrayal of Public Lighting Service (CIP) is outlined in article 149-A of the 1988 Federal Constitution, which establishes, among the competencies of municipalities, to arrange, according to specific law approved by the Municipal Chamber, the CIP charge and basis of calculation.
Thus, any and all responsibility for the project, implementation, expansion, operation and maintenance of public lighting installations is attributed to the Municipal Government.
These are fees charged in the energy bill when it is paid after the due date, that is, late. Important: Invoices due on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays can be paid on the first subsequent working day without incurring penalty, interest or monetary correction
- Penalty: 2% a month
- Interest: 1% a month pro rata die.
- Monetary correction: based on the IGP-M variation.
The penalty and interest apply to the total amount of the bill, with the exception of:
- The public lighting contribution (CIP), to which penalties, corrections and interest established in the specific legislation apply
- The values relative to social interest contributions or donations.
- The fines and interest from previous periods
