b. What is the difference between dividends and interest on capital (JCP)?

In Brazil, in accordance with the Brazilian Corporate Law (64040/76), any publicly-held company must distribute to its shareholders at least 25% of the net income through dividends or interest on capital. When purchasing a share, the investor becomes the owner of part of the Company and, therefore, is entitled to the right to receive a portion of the accrued income. The dividends are fully received by the investor, that is, are net of income tax (IR), as the Company has already paid the taxes on income.

In relation to interest on capital, the shareholder pays the withholding income tax of 15%. The companies are authorized to pay interest on capital at the Long-term Investment Rate (TJLP), and the value distributed in recognized as finance costs in the Company’s profit or loss. Therefore, the Company reduces the taxable income, which decreases the income tax payable by the Company.
