Get your Portuguese NIF, easy

If you’re looking to become a tax resident, expat, open a bank account, sign up for insurance or something else – you will need a NIF; or a Número de Identificação Fiscal as known in Portugal. What is it; simply, it’s your taxpayer ID.

Usually, it only takes as little as a week to receive your NIF.

  • Purchasing a care
  • Opening a Portuguese bank account
  • Taking out broadband
  • Starting a phone contract
  • Plus more…

Do I need fiscal representation

If you are a non-EU resident, you will need Fiscal Representation when applying for your NIF. Simply because, you require a Portuguese address and a fallback for your tax compliance – so until you have your own address in Portugal, we can cover you.
