Receive your Portuguese NIF, simple

Are you wanting to become a tax resident, expat, open a bank account, apply for insurance in Portugal? Then you will need a Portuguese NIF, known as the Número de Identificação Fiscal. Just like in any country you are issued a taxpayer ID, well a Portuguese NIF is just the same.

Typically, it only takes a week to receive your Portuguese NIF.

When do I need a NIF?

  • Buying or renting property
  • Buying a car
  • Obtaining a Portuguese bank account
  • Signing up for broadband
  • Applying for a phone contract
  • Plus more…

Do I require Fiscal Representation?

If you are not an EU Resident, then Fiscal Representation is required when applying for your NIF. They will provide you with a Portuguese address, and act as the fall back for all of your tax affairs - until such time that you do eventually acquire an address in Portugal yourself.
