UFIR or UFM?


Explanation:
I believe that there is a typo here because what we have is UFIR: Unidade Fiscal de Referência or Fiscal Reference Unit.
The only other abbreviation with an M is the UFM or Unidade Fiscal do Município or Municipal Fiscal Unit.
Please check your source for the right abbreviation.

Unidade Fiscal de Referência do Estado do Mato Grosso do Sul


Explanation:
First of all I would like to congratulate Telef. Living in India he knows better about Brazil then a lot of brazilians (including myself)

The UFs are an inheritance from the times of hyper-inflation and are meant to preserve the value of the fiscal income.

UFIR is a federal measure, but states and even the biggest municipalities have their own UFs, as Lumen explained above.

Márcio.
