4. The NIF document will act as your proof of NIF anytime anyone asks you for it.

5. Receive your password for the Financas website

We will request the password for you, which will be mailed to you.

This takes about 3-4 weeks since the password is sent by mail.

6. Update your Portuguese address & cancel our tax representation services

Once you have become a Portugal tax resident, you can update your address with the tax office to cancel our tax representation
