Portuguese VAT registration deadline changed
Portuguese VAT registration form must be submitted within 15 days from the moment a company has been incorporated in the Portuguese Trade Registry.
29 October, 2016
This deadline has now been cancelled and the registration form is required prior to any activities carried in Portugal. This also applies to non-established companies.
Portugal also allows backdated registrations, but these would be subject to late filing and late payment penalties according to the Portuguese sanction scheme.
In most European countries, a registration form is due prior to start your taxable activities in the country. This requirement creates problems for businesses who are often required to register urgently in order to start their activities.
