WHAT IS THE FISCAL NUMBER


The fiscal number number is allocated (on request) by the Finance Department. It is unique and every person has to ask for one.

This number will be requested in many cases and in particular for:
- the opening of a bank account.
- Purchase of real estate.
- The purchase of a vehicle.
- contracts for electricity, water, telephone, etc ....

When purchasing real estate, the tax number is not compulsory for the signature of the sale agreement, but is obligatory for the signature of the deed.

When you request the tax number you will be asked for an address that can be your address in Portugal if you are a resident or your address in your country of origin if you are not resident in Portugal.
