Portugal postponed the obligation to use certified invoicing programs to issue invoices until January 2020.

According to the Ministerial Order 254/2019-XXI, the Portuguese Tax Authority has postponed the mandatory use of certified software for non-resident companies from 1 July 2019 to 1 January 2020.

This extension of time will allow non-resident companies to switch to using pre-certified invoicing programs or to request certification for their own programs, i.e. they will have more time to implement the requirements of the Portuguese Tax Authority.

Currently, all resident companies which annual revenue exceed €75,000 are obligated to use certified billing software to issue invoices in order to be compliant with the current tax regulations in Portugal
