Fiscal Representation

It is a legal requirement for all non EU individuals who have a fiscal number in Portugal for the acquisition of property, bank accounts, or any means of transportation, such as cars, aeroplanes, boats to appoint a fiscal representative.

EU resident individuals are no longer obliged to appoint a fiscal representative if they have residential property or other taxable activity in Portugal, however it is highly recommended that they do so in order to ensure that their fiscal affairs are kept in order.

With tax department notifications usually requiring a reply within 10 to 30 days and always being written in Portuguese, it makes sense for all non-resident property owners to nominate a representative who will be the interface between the individual and the tax department and who is then jointly responsible for any tax calculations relating to property and / or to individual taxes.
