Yes thank you Thomas, I read that and it just confirms what I was thinking, that I am responsible for appointing a fiscal representative on pain of draconian fines from the PT tax authorities otherwise.

Yes, it's a pain, as logically what would come up with an account but no assets? You may find that small independent accountants would consider doing it for a small annual fee, perhaps... or a friend or relative with legal residency in Portugal can do it for you, if you know such a person.

@thomasribatejo Thanks, unfortunately I don't know anyone that well. I'll try some small accountancy firms and see what they say.

Nominating and registering a Fiscal Representative (FR)

First of both you and your proposed Fiscal Representative must be registered on the Financas website http://www.portaldasfinancas.gov.pt

to do that you must have your Número de Identificação Fiscal (NIF) (also known as Número de contribuinte). You need to know both you and your FR’s NIF. Assuming that is in place:

  2. Click on ‘entregar nomeação’
  3. Introduce your FR’s NIF and click on ‘Âmbitos’
  4. Click on ‘iniciar nomeação do representante’
  5. The Financas will send a letter with a code to your nomination who must then log on to the Financas website and, search for ‘representante fiscal’ and click on ‘confirmar nomeação’ and enter the code.
