Starting July 1, 2018, eSocial will be mandatory for all employers in the country.
The tool is a joint project of the federal government and will be the new form of information provided by the employer, integrating the routine of more than 8 million companies and 40 million workers.
When fully implemented, eSocial will represent the substitution of 15 government information services - such as GFIP, RAIS, CAGED and DIRF - for only one.
