No need to panic, but here is something for you non resident home owners to keep an eye on. Anyone can be a fiscal representative. There is no need to pay the exorbitant fees demanded by a lawyer or accountant who will probably pocket your money and do nothing.


And if you voted to leave the EU, please do not complain!

I think Rules for fiscal representation have changed now if you have access to the Financas Portal

There is one important sentence "Taxpayers resident abroad who do not maintain any legal-tax relationship with the country are now exempt from having to appoint a tax representative in Portugal,..."

and other paragraph

"The appointment of a tax representative is mandatory for all holders of a Tax Identification Number (TIN) who are resident in countries outside the European Union (EU). Due to Brexit, this now encompasses Portuguese emigrants living in the United Kingdom."

So I read this as meaning if you live outside Portugal and do not have a Portuguese tax number you don't need a fiscal rep. If you are outside Portugal and do pay taxes here, then you must.

One for the legal minds among you.

You maybe right Cubsur

The Portuguese consulate does not make it any clearer.

http://www.portugalemlondres.org/comunicados/representante-fiscal - Tax Representative - Consulate General of Portugal in London (portugalemlondres.org)

It may be referring to appointing a fiscal representative on the Finance Portal?

Need some clarification on this.

Sounds good news. This communication from the Portugal gov site seems to tie up with what a contabilista (accountant) is telling me.

https://www.ugal.gov.pt/pt/gc23/comunicacao/comunicado?i=emigrantes-fora-da-ue-poderao-trocar-representante-fiscal-por-notificacoes-eletronicas - Emigrants outside the EU may exchange tax representative for electronic notifications - XXIII Government - Portuguese Republic (portugal.gov.pt)

"Emigrants outside the EU may exchange tax representative for electronic notifications
Portuguese taxpayers residing outside the European Union, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein may join the new system of electronic notifications and citations on the Finance Portal from 1 July. With this upreach, all taxpayers residing outside those countries may waive the designation of tax representative.

In addition, taxpayers resident in the UNITED Kingdom – whose obligation to appoint a tax representative is suspended until 30 June 2022 – will be able to join the electronic notification and citation system on the Finance Portal during the second half of 2022. Alternatively, if you choose not to adhere to this system, you can designate a tax representative by December 31, 2022 without penalty.

The access to electronic notifications can be made directly on the Finance Portal (www.portaldasfinancas.gov.pt/):

a) Notifications and citations on the Finance Portal
? Accessing "My Area" > "Notifications and Quotes" > "Manage Channels" > "Notification Channels" > "Finance Portal" > "Enable"

On the Finance Portal will be available the generality of notifications relating to Value Added Tax (VAT), the Municipal Property Tax (IMI), as well as those relating to settlement notes and payments of Tax on the
Income of Natural Persons (IRS) and administrative litigation.

Taxpayers residing abroad who do not maintain any legal-tax relationship with the country are already exempt from appointing tax representative in Portugal.."
