Company Formation in Portugal

travel_exploreRegister Business


Starting a company is a simple process if you have the right partner to help you. Setting up the company itself only requires the definition of share capital and a maximum of four activities that you will carry out.

However, there are other associated issues that are required together with both the Tax and Customs Authority and Social Security that have to be carried out within the legal deadlines by the certified accountant that the company will (compulsorily) nominate.

Another key point will be the opening of a corporate bank account (requiring the presence in Portugal of all partners) and the respective updating of the register in all public services.

We also provide recruitment and selection services for workers and have a range of partners able to recruit highly qualified and specific positions.

In addition to these issues, the company will also need an official address. We offer the option of a virtual office or even co-working according to your needs. Other services related to the development of your activity can be added to these services.
