The Portuguese Tax Number
Our NIF creation service is tailored to seamlessly integrate you into the Portuguese system, paving the way for successful applications for residency.
Why obtaining a Tax Number?
In this initial stage, clients are required to send a copy of their passport and a proof of address. This is a critical step, as these documents form the foundation of the NIF application process. Accuracy and clarity of these documents are paramount to ensure a smooth progression to the next stages.
At this stage, our external partners draft the Power of Attorney (PoA) and other necessary documents needed to obtain the NIF remotely. This process involves careful consideration of the client’s specific circumstances and requirements, ensuring that all legal and procedural standards are met.
Clients will receive the drafted PoA and related documents for review and signature. This stage is crucial as a signed PoA grants our partners the authority to act on behalf of the client in the NIF application process. Clients are advised to thoroughly review the documents before signing to ensure all details are correct and understood.
With the signed documents in hand, we proceed to submit the NIF application at the Finance department. This stage involves liaising with government officials and ensuring that the application is processed according to the stipulated guidelines. Our expertise and familiarity with the process play a vital role in navigating this stage efficiently.
The final stage culminates in the issuance of the NIF by Finanças (the Portuguese Tax and Customs Authority). Once issued, the NIF serves as a key identifier for the client in all fiscal and legal matters within Portugal. We ensure that the NIF is securely delivered to the client, marking the successful completion of the service.

Frequently Asked Questions
A NIF (Número de Identificação Fiscal) number in Portugal, also known as a Tax Identification Number, is a unique numerical code assigned to individuals and entities for tax purposes. It is essential for conducting various financial and official activities within Portugal, including opening a bank account, executing contracts, and engaging in employment or business activities.
Holding a Portuguese NIF number entails certain responsibilities. Individuals and entities must use it in all tax-related transactions and declarations. It is important to ensure that all information provided to the tax authorities is accurate and to comply with Portuguese tax laws and regulations.

Obtaining a NIF number in Portugal does not automatically confer tax residency status. Tax residency is determined by several factors, such as the duration of stay in Portugal and the individual’s personal and economic ties to the country. A NIF is a prerequisite for various administrative processes but does not, by itself, establish tax residency.
