Company incorporation

Despite the crises, foreign companies continue to set up in large numbers in Portugal. The main form of setting up in Portugal is the creation of a company.

What services do we offer?

The incorporation of a Portuguese company is very formal. Our lawyers based in Lisbon assist you in all the steps prior to the creation of your company:

  • request for the certificate of your company name from the Trade and Companies Register,
  • request for the Tax Identification Number for partners or corporate officers (natural or legal persons),
  • drafting of the articles of association of your company,
  • opening a bank account in Portugal,
  • support for signature before a notary,
  • registration of the company with the tax authorities,
  • registration of the company with social security,
  • request for the intra-community VAT number.

SORECO can also assist you in the creation of your branch or your permanent establishment in Portugal.
