How do I get a tax number in Portugal?


A tax number means a tax identification number that is needed for anyone who wants to take on official business in Portugal. Número Identificação Fiscal (NIF) is a kind of citizen service number and it is also called número the counter garden.

Why do I need this number? If you want to open a bank account, buy real estate, sell real estate, receive social security benefits, buy cars, get a mortgage or credit, pay taxes, receive income from work or a company,..

It is also mandatory for other financial transactions. In fact, it comes down to the fact that cashing out requires a número contribuinte. It is also necessary to reclaim taxes when, for example, school or office supplies or other business products are purchased and when paying or receiving the rent and concluding a Portuguese telephone or internet subscription.
