I need to grant power of attorney to my VAT tax rep, and have found zero help online, or from local agencies. No surprise, at this point in my little residency adventure here, that you can't even pay Portuguese people to lift a finger with this stuff. Anyone know where I can find a template or anything that would pass in Portugal for this? Or maybe a pointer to a tax lawyer that actually works?
If my attitude seems a bit gruff, I've been on the ground in Portugal six months already, and my window to apply for residency is closing, and it's thanks to the lazy idiots and insane bureaucrats here that I am barely any closer to having an application ready. It would be kind of absurd if I had to leave just because no one in this country can do their jobs, so I am doing all I can to put things together myself, but Financas has advised if the document is not recognized by local lawyers, it won't be accepted, and then I can't start my activity here. I have my appointment to submit all this coming up in a week (which I can't reschedule, because it takes a month just to get a date), so basically I have a matter of days to get this document sorted (which I've been working to get handled for weeks already), or I'll probably be forced to leave Portugal without having been able to submit an application for residency despite all efforts. REALLY sick of this crap.
Anyway, power of attorney doc or lawyer to draft one is what I need ASAP. Thank you!
