TAX IDENTIFICATION NUMBER
- NIF -
UK nationals covered by the Withdrawal Agreement do not need a Tax Identification Number (Número de Identificação Fiscal - NIF) to take up residence in Portugal.
In situations where you are subject to paying taxes in Portugal, such as working in Portugal; buying/selling a property; signing a tenancy agreement or if you need to open a bank account, you must apply for a NIF.
