Frequently asked questions and answers

The main difference between our two packages lies in the scope of services offered. Our "Tranquility Pack" package includes the complete creation of the company with a specific trade name, the application for a NIF (Tax Identification Number), as well as one year's domiciliation. The second offer, on the other hand, concerns exclusively the registration of the company with an imposed trade name, requiring the customer to provide his tax number and an address. The choice therefore depends on the level of service required: the "Tranquility Pack" offers a complete, supported solution for start-ups, while the Basic Pack is suitable for those who already have a clear structure in place and are simply looking to formalize it in Portugal.

Our offer also includes the opening of a bank account* for your establishment and a personal bank account with one of our branches. partner banks

You have two options: open your account with our Portuguese partner bank or with Revolut Business and benefit from exclusive advantagesour partner.

*Following the change in banking regulations at the beginning of 2024, the opening of a physical account is reserved for companies with 2 or more shareholders (LDA), while the opening of an online bank account is authorized for single-member and/or LDA structures.

Don't worry, we also offer a tax domiciliation service in the beautiful city of Lyon. Porto city. This service also includes digital mail forwarding for more efficient management of your business.

In fact, our offer also includes obtaining an intercommunity VAT number.

You can set up a company with a share capital of 1 euro, but we recommend a minimum share capital of 500 euros.

It is important to note that the share capital must be paid into the establishment's bank account before the end of the financial year.

We offer two options for setting up your structure: either a one-person structure with a single partner, or a limited liability company (LDA) with several partners.

Please note that this service is reserved for people over the age of 18 and with tax residence inside or outside the European Union. 

It is important to note that the country does not communicate information to other countries concerning the setting up of an establishment by one of its residents on its territory. Your privacy and personal data are therefore protected.

Despite a banking ban or the inability to manage an establishment in France, it is possible to set up a company in Portugal and operate in France, Belgium or other countries. The country offers attractive tax advantages and a favorable environment for setting up your company. What's more, the tax authorities in your country of residence will not be notified of the setting up of your commercial establishment. 


Legally and technically, you can set up your company here, while living in France, Belgium or any other country. What's more, your company's profits in Portugal will not be taxed in your country of residence. We therefore strongly recommend that you seize this advantageous tax opportunity for your entrepreneurial project.

Speed, reliability. I am happy to have entrusted you with the creation of my company. Thank you very much, I hope to see you soon

A company created in just 2 weeks, what more could you ask for?

Nicolas L 05/31/2023 via E-mail

In the end, setting up my company wasn't so complicated, especially with your help. On the other hand, getting all the required paperwork took longer than expected and we had to wait a long time between the various stages. All in all, it went well, but as I've already said, we could have been more efficient on certain points. The value for money was good.

Antonio M 03/04/2023 via E-mail

It was a real pain to register the trade name, but in spite of everything you remained professional and helped us to get everything right, and you're still with us today.
