RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Over 1,500 App drivers such as Uber, Cabify, and 99 have already registered as individual micro-entrepreneurs (MEI) in Brazil. App drivers have been authorized to join the MEI in August under the "other unspecified passenger road transportation" category.
By becoming an individual micro-entrepreneur, drivers are covered by social welfare and may issue invoices. As such, professionals are entitled to government benefits such as sick pay, retirement by age or disability . . .
