Until 2008, in Brazil, autonomous micro entrepreneurs practiced their business relationships informally as a result of not having access to formality. After the enactment of the Micro Entrepreneur Law, without too much bureaucracy, this category of subjects of law obtained the right to formalization of the exercise of their economic activities and the guarantee of some fundamental social rights, such as: maternity aid, sickness aid, and retirement, among others. The general objective of the research is to analyze whether or not the development of records of the individual micro entrepreneur occurred, after having been provided access to formality. The specific objectives, after contextualizing the underground economy, are: (i) to comprehend the informal and formal business relationships of the micro entrepreneur; and (ii) to indicate what the main economic activities are, developed by micro entrepreneurs in Brazil after their formalization. The research methodology has two approaches: (i) theoretical; and (ii) secondary data, with the temporal cut of the research covering the years 2010-2013 and the spatial cut including the representative data from the 27 Brazilian States.
