Requires registration with the tax office to obtain the tax identification number (NIF – Número de Identificação Fiscal), being the tax domicile the place of habitual residence.

 

To make the purchase of your property you need the following documents:

- Land Registry Certificate (Certidão do Registo Predial),
- Title certificate (Caderneta Predial),
- Usage license (Licença de Utilização),
- Energy certificate (Certificado Energético).

 

The required taxes and costs on the acquisition of a property are the following:

- The Municipal Tax on property Transfer (IMT - Imposto Municipal sobre Transmissões Onerosas de Imóveis), with a rate of 6% in the case of a property intended for housing.

 

The rate changes to 6.5% if the property is intended to be a shop, office, warehouse, parking or storage room; 6.5% in the case of a land for construction and 5% if the property is a rural or agricultural land.

- Stamp duty (IS – Imposto de Selo): 0.8% on the onerous acquisition value of the property 
- Title certificate: 150 to 250€
- Cost of the property deed (notarial act): 615€

 

After the acquisition of a property, every year there is the need to pay the Municipal Property Tax (IMI – Imposto Municipal sobre Imóveis). The IMI will focus on the Taxable Value (VPT – Valor Patrimonial Tributário) of rustic and urban buildings located in the municipality in which the property is located. This Taxable Value is in general lower than the purchase price and the rate to be applied is municipal, being expected a range between 0.30 - 0.39% in notable urban areas of Portugal, and around 0.50% in Faro or Albufeira.
