Tax Law

Self-Employed Activity

For whom it is intended:

To citizens, Portuguese or foreign, who wish to exercise self-employed professional activity in Portugal.

It is very common among freelancers and digital nomads.

Before starting the provision of services, it is necessary to communicate this intent to the tax authority by submitting the declaration of start of activity.

When opening an activity, it is necessary to choose the taxation scheme, either the simplified scheme or organised accounting, indicate the CAE (Code of Classification of Economic Activities), in the subsection ->VAT->, fill in the field ->Turnover (Euro)-> with estimated turnover until the end of the year (the amount is annual for VAT and IRS purposes) and indicate whether or not the activities concerned give rise to a right to a VAT deduction.

The activity is automatically reported to the Social Security by the tax authority.

In addition to opening a business, we help with the rectification and closure of a business.

Requirements:

  • Intend to exercise self-employment in Portugal.
