Seven out of 10 individual microentrepreneurs (MEIs) had a job before opening their own business. This is what the Brazilian Support Service for Micro and Small Enterprises (Sebrae Nacional) points out, in an analysis released this Thursday (19).

According to the entity, the result indicates that more people are undertaking in the country, motivated by a need for this profile of workers in the last three years.

In 2019, around 63% of entrepreneurs who registered in the category were employed before starting their own business. By 2022, the number has reached 67%.

This year, contracting by formal contract was the previous reality of 51% among those who formalized as MEI. Unregistered employees represent a total of 16% of these workers.

The survey also points to a decline in the proportion of micro-entrepreneurs who were already informal entrepreneurs. From 2019 to 2022, that number dropped from 21% to 15%.

The president of Sebrae, Carlos Melles, says that the study proves the importance of the MEI in the Brazilian economy. According to the director, this business format implies less bureaucracy and lower taxes.

“One of the explanations for this drop is the fact that there have been a large number of formalizations since the beginning of the pandemic. In 2021 alone, 3.1 million MEIs were created and we can conclude that part of this group worked informally”, highlights the president.

He also draws attention to aspects that the entity considers positive in this market performance model.

“With the MEI, the person ensures access to various benefits and advantages, such as retirement, sick pay and leave, maternity pay, in the case of pregnant women and adopters, as well as guarantees for the family, such as a pension for death and social assistance. -reclusion”, he defends.

MEI was created in Brazil 12 years ago. Since then, 14 million citizens have already registered as micro-entrepreneurs. Data from the Ministry of Economy also show that, in 2022 alone, 646,000 new self-employed professionals registered in the country.
