Date24 Nov 2022

We would like to remind you that taxable entities that are not established in Portugal, but registered for VAT purposes, has the obligation to use certified invoicing software since the 1st of July 2021.

In January 2023 it’s mandatory all the entities have this obligation accomplished and submit the SAF-T until day 5 of each month, starting in January of 2023 regarding the month of December of 2022.

Invoices issued with the Portuguese VAT number, should be issued with Portuguese certified software. You can find the list of certified software on the site of the Portuguese fiscal authorities below:

Each software generates its own SAF-T files. Upon receipt of the SAF-T -t, our partner firm in Portugal will file them with the PT Tax Authority.
