After months of delays, the Brazilian government on July 2015, posted to the official eSocial web site a new version (2.1) of the eSocial file layout and a first version of the Manual Instructions. However, a new version is expected to be released soon.
Regarding to the timeline, companies with revenues of over $78 million reais in 2014, have until September 2016 to transition to the new system for all labor, social security and tax information and until January 2017 for information on workplace safety and worker health issues (SST).
For companies earning less than $78 million reais in 2014, the deadlines are January and July 2017, respectively.
Oracle is working closely with the government as part of the Confederation Work Group and as part of the Pilot Companies Working Group. We are attending the official meetings and are in cooperation with the Government to reduce the inconsistencies and to improve the quality of the layout's information.
