Portuguese Bank Account and Tax ID

If you want residency in Portugal or you want to own property in Portugal, a Portuguese bank account is key.

If you just want a European bank account that you can open remotely, this Portuguese bank account also fits the bill.

This service combines a Portuguese Bank Account AND a Portugese Tax ID.

As someone relocating to Portugal, a Portuguese tax ID, also known as the Número de Identificação Fiscal (or NIF for short) is absolutely essential.

Get your Bank Account + NIF in 4 Easy Steps

1) Place your order
2) Sign a Power of Attorney (This allows your fiscal representative, a Portuguese lawyer, to request your NIF on your behalf.)
3) Receive Your NIF
4) Use NIF to open bank account
Usually, you can expect to receive your NIF in 1 week. This can take longer if the Tax Office is experiencing delays. The Bank Account takes another 3-4 weeks.
Your bank account comes with a private bank manager who will be your main point of contact with the bank.
