Company IN, the one-stop-shop for foreigners to setup a company in Portugal

Foreign investors wishing to incorporate a company in Portugal can now do it easier at the new “Company IN” counter of “Empresa na Hora”.

With this pilot project, “Company IN”, presented today, foreigners can now book an appointment with an English-speaking employee at the “Empresa na Hora”. There, a TIN (Tax Identification Number) can be assigned, thus eliminating the need to previously request it to the Tax Authority. Additionally, bilingual minutes of proxies, memorandum and articles, are available online in the Company IN site, providing all necessary information to assist the process of incorporation.

In the pilot stage, the counter is available at the National Register of Collective Persons (RNPC) “Empresa na Hora”, in Lisbon (map). Appointments in English can be booked via email ( or through the “Empresa na Hora” RNPC’ landline (+351 217 714 300).

For more information please visit the “Company IN” section at the “Empresa na Hora” website.
