The remaining installments will always be due on the last business day of each month. In installments on PGFN debt, the maturity will always be on the last business day of the month.
What is the expected compensation of the entrepreneur?
By joining the installment payment in Simple National, the entrepreneur undertakes to maintain the regularity of monthly payments until the conclusion of debt consolidation.
The granting of your install request also means the irreversible confession of the debt. That is, he admits that he should, with no chance to back down or question values. Another consequence is that it gives up the previous installment, if any, and cannot summarize it if it does not pay the first installment of the new agreement. If the new application is rejected and becomes ineffective, it will not be possible to reinstate the previous contract.
What if you don’t pay a installment?

Also the amounts of fines included in the initial debt (default, legal and default interest) will be reinstated.
Is the installment payment in Simple National a good one for you?
There are almost 700 thousand micro and small companies in Brazil, participants in Simple National, which have some kind of debt with the federal government. The sum of all debts reaches almost $ 25 billion. Being able to negotiate what you owe is more than a financial relief: it represents the chance to move on as an entrepreneur. After all, those who remain in default have the main risk of being excluded from the simplified tax collection scheme.
But as we have seen before, to adhere to debt installment payment, one has to commit to the monthly payment. Failure to pay benefits will put the entrepreneur in even greater trouble than he had when applying for the new agreement. And it’s not in use paying off only part of the installment, or it will be considered as unpaid.
If you are faced with this difficulty, you may need to be financially re-educated, reducing expenses, establishing a plan that can be met, and moving permanently away from new debt. Talk to your accountant, read, get informed and set up your strategy. With discipline and intelligence, you will reach the end of 120 months at a much more promising time for your business.
