Portugal – Electronic invoicing becomes mandatory for VAT registered companies in Portugal

From July 1st, 2021, foreign companies who are registered for VAT in Portugal must use an electronic invoicing software certified by the Portuguese authorities if any of the following apply:

  • The taxable person’s turnover in the previous calendar year exceeded EUR 50,000, or if the taxable person is starting up a business and the reference period is shorter than the calendar year, the annualised turnover for this period is higher than EUR 50,000.
  • The taxpayer uses invoicing software
  • The taxable person is required to keep organised accounting records or, if not required to do so, has elected to do so.

The Portuguese Tax Authorities provides a list of certified e-invoicing software.

Companies can also use their own invoicing software, which must then be certified by the tax authorities.
