THE PIS registration is mandatory, but because it is not a number used on a daily basis, such as RG or CPF, many do not know how to take out PIS / PASEP. Therefore, this process must be done by the employer himself, when the employee is hired in his first job.
However, PIS and PASEP are not the same, while one is linked to a private sector worker (PIS), the other is linked to the public service (PASEP), but we will talk about this later.
Today there are four ways – segmented into three alternatives – to carry out the PIS registration: through the internet, directly in contact with a branch of Caixa Econômica Federal bank or through batch registration.
It turns out that there is a lot behind the bureaucracy about how to get the PIS number. This is because many people still have doubts about its importance and what it is for the employee – questions that will be clarified throughout this article.
What is the PIS number?
PIS is the abbreviation for the Social Integration Program. It is a tax contribution made by companies and is intended exclusively for professionals in the private sector.
He is one is one social benefit granted to workers enrolled in the Federal Government program. This program was created in the 70s with the objective of generating more integration of the employee with the development of the company.
As we talked about earlier, the PIS number registration is the responsibility of the contracting company and is generated in the first job, through the NIS Registration Document (DCN).
The PIS corresponds to the 13th salary of the worker. That is, it is equivalent to the payment of a minimum wage and follows an annual calendar established by CODEFAT (Deliberative Council of the Workers' Support Fund).
What is the importance and what is the PIS for?
THE importance of PIS is directly associated with the financing of a series of benefits and rights of professionals, such as:
For employees of a private sector business, PIS acts both as a means of identifying professionals individually and as a password for that person to have access to funds under the responsibility of Caixa Econômica Federal. Cases of unemployment insurance and FGTS, for example.
It is also worth noting that the employer must be aware if the employee has – or not – a PIS number.
What difference between PIS and PASEP
Both PIS and PASEP are two social contribution programs, but with different goals.
THE PIS it is a social contribution that companies are required by law to make to their employees. It is aimed at private sector workers with a formal contract registration.
THE PASEP is the acronym for Civil Servant Heritage Training Program, is a benefit aimed only at public servants, having the same objectives as PIS.
The PASEP is the same number as the NIS and the registration is done with the signature of the work card, as well as in the NIS. If the worker, who has always worked in the private sector, is approved in some competition, there is no need to change or correct the documentation, since the registration is the same.
But how to take out PIS for the first time for a new employee at your company? Well, we’ve detailed everything below.
