Income tax while remote working

Hi everyone, 

This is my first post, so sorry if this isn’t the right place to ask this question. 

My girlfriend and I are working remotely while living in Portugal, I’m a UK citizen working for a UK company, she’s a New Zealand citizen working for an NZ company. We both have wages paid into British and NZ bank accounts respectively, and pay income tax on those earnings in those countries. 

Are we supposed to pay any Portuguese taxes on those earnings too?

Thanks for any information you can give!
