Invoicing through the tax authority

I’ve just read that invoicing of clients should be done through the tax authority’s website. Is this correct? I’m curious how this system works.

1. How does this system allow for recurring payments?

2. Would the invoice you create go out in English or in Portuguese? Can you also alter the invoice to add company branding?

3. How are payments received? Just regular to your bank account or through the tax authority and then to your bank account?

4. Would the finished invoice go out electronically to the client, in the same way as if you were using a project management software like Dubsado to produce the invoice?

Thanks for your help.

Either you can invoice using an approved software package which can interface with AT (see ) or you have to manually enter the details into the Portal.  In the latter case there will be little opportunity for branding.
