Frequently asked questions

The NIF, which stands for Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), plays a crucial role in Portugal's taxation system. In simpler terms, it can be referred to as the "fiscal number" or "taxpayer number" for individuals.

In the realm of Portuguese taxation, the NIF acts as a unique identifier, connecting taxpayers to their specific tax obligations. Whether you're seeking to initiate a registration request or preparing to submit a tax return, the NIF is the key that unlocks these processes.

Portugal NIF as Individual

For individuals, the NIF is a vital component that appears on a variety of documents, including income tax returns, corporate tax returns, income tax notices, housing tax statements, and property tax records. It's essentially your financial fingerprint, allowing tax authorities to accurately track and manage your tax-related activities.

The process of obtaining your NIF involves a timeframe that generally spans between 3 and 10 business days from the moment you submitted all of your documents. This duration is subject to variation based on certain factors, primarily hinging on the operational efficiency of the Portugal Tax Office.
Your NIF doesn’t have an expiry date, it is issued to you for life.
MET CONNECT LDA links you to a Portugal fiscal representative, who will forward to you any messages you could get from the Tax Office (to a rate of 150€ a year), until you choose a new representative yourself. Having a tax representative is mandatory for foreign people coming from non-EU countries
Yes, after you get in Portugal, you will be able to change your fiscal representative, as soon as you declare your own Portugal address, with a proof of address associated with your NIF.
It is possible to ask for a NIF for a minor, but you will need some more documents to complete your application. You will need the following :
  • Birth certificate
  • Copy of passport of the first parent
  • Copy of passport of the second parent
If there’s only one parent, we will need proof of a single custodial parent instead of the second passport (proof of custody, death certificate…).
