Overcome the complexity of tax classification with the strategic partnership between your company and 4MDG!

Tax classification is the assignment of specific codes to products based on standardized nomenclature. Its importance is related to compliance with tax obligations, legal compliance, facilitation of international trade, inventory control, data analysis, and standardization in communication. Tax classification ensures the correct calculation of taxes, avoids legal issues, streamlines business operations, provides consistent data, and facilitates communication among stakeholders.

How we solve your material registration problems!

A good material registration, besides providing intangible benefits such as improvement in governance, generation of business insights, and compliance with government regulations, can also reduce your company's costs.

According to the 2020 Global Data Management Report, 85% of companies claim that they see data as the most valuable asset for their business.

Having a complete, coherent, and intact registration increases organizational productivity.

In general terms, PDM (Descriptive Material Standardization) allows your registration to be organized practically and coherently. The goal is to create consistent material descriptions based on pre-established rules, eliminating duplications.

Using a previously established structure of characteristics and values, new descriptions are formed based on rules, leaving no room for the use of unforeseen terms.

During this process, it is also common to review the NCM classification of your products, avoiding incorrect payment of taxes.
