I am not sure if calling this a "voucher" or otherwise.

Statement
Explanation:
It's actually a "statement".

The company issuing it actually states that they have paid that amount to the individual indicated, having withheld the amounts mentioned therein as taxes or whatever.

This is for the Receita Federal (Brazilian "IRS") to cross-check income tax returns. The company should have paid the amounts it wittheld from the employee or freelancer's pay as taxes. Likewise, the individual should declare as income the gross proceeds from his/her work, as well as how much was deducted as tax at the source (to get a deduction or a rebate on their tax).

If these figures (company's and individual's) don't match, or either one is missing, a tax auditor will check them.

If summoned, the individual will have to present that *statement* from the company, to show that his/her tax return used those figures. If this is OK, the company will be audited, because the figures don't match their statement, or they simply pocketed the tax money they deducted from that individual, didn't pay his taxes.
