International Accounting Bulleti, in association with sister title The Accountantn, have produced a new data set aimed at measuring the balance between non-audit services (NAS) and auditing fees earned by Brazilian accountancy firms.

Brazil seems to be entering a poignant time in its political and economic history. The country’s federal audit court, known as TCU (Federal Court of Accountants), rejected President Dilma Rousseff’s government’s fiscal deficit accounts from 2014.

The decision has given Rousseff’s parliamentary opponents a prime opportunity to try and impeach her, especially since it is the first time in 80 years that the TCU has ruled against a president.
