You do not need to pay someone to be a tax representative. Anyone can do it. For a simple matter such as receiving an IMI bill and paying it, all you need is someone living here that with mutual trust to receive the bill and pay it for you. I have already paid car tax for a holiday home owner who obviously cannot be here.

Getting the local concil to change the address to which the bills are sent is another matter!

I don't pay IMI but I believe that the accounts can be accessed and payment made through the Finanças website. For that you need a registration, which when I did it came through the post, and a Portuguese bank account.

A problem might exist for you if Finanças stop sending IMI bills to UK addresses as has been rumoured. This years bills should be arriving around now.

If no-one here in a similar situation knows the overall tax situation for certain, it might be worth a one-off chat with an accountant but once established that you have no tax liabilities here that should be that.

It’s a tax return that someone says you need to fill in even though zero and pay a accountant to do this so I’m confused

That's true so far as I know and since the documentation is only in Portuguese with a million boxes to fill in, using an accountant first time is probably for the best.
