NIF question

Post New Topic
NIFproblem
5/8/2019 12:31 EST

would anyone please help to answer my question? after my representative helped to get my NIF, but I decide not to live here, return to home country, and never intend to have any transaction involving Portugal just like before, why do I have a representative here? no point to have any representative without transaction, in this case, what should I do with representative or my NIF? Could I go back to Financas to cancel NIF and representative? Thank you very very much!

Why do you need to cancel it? It doesn't affect anything if you're not in Portugal.

The representative may be charging an annual fee. An attorney "offered" us this option and we passed!

Sounds like a scam. You get your NIF and you're done. And if you're not in the country, that person probably can't collect from you.

I definitely smell sort of scam here, the representative insists to charge annual fees on me if I chose, not to live here, What can I do about it? Can I get back to Financas to nullify NIF and representative?? She talks about this thing after I got NIF, not before

About a week ago I came across a company offering to get NIF for people abroad. Initial fee they charged was e100 and then a yearly renewal fee of another e100. Their other services offered were in those grey financial areas to minimise/avoid tax on property purchases.
Fact: There is no government requirement to renew your NIF once issued.
You can destroy the NIF you have.
Inform the Financas if you want.
If you have given any bank details to this "representative", inform your bank and have them block any payments now and in the future.
If you gave card details, inform your bank and ask for replacement card.
If they bother you any more, tell them to go to the police, they never will
Don't worry yourself over it, they are just trying to intimidate you. If they send you any "legal demands" for payment, bin them. They'll soon get fed up and try it on someone else.
