What are a company's inherent tax obligations?
The four main taxes you may pay are:
- IRC: The Corporate Income Tax is applied to the profits of your company, and represents a 21% tax. SMEs have the benefit of a 17% tax on the first 15 thousand euros of profit. Only when this value is exceeded is the 21% rate applied.
- VAT: Value added tax rates depend on the goods and services provided by the company and the location of the operations. However companies pay VAT and pay the same. The difference between the two is communicated to AT monthly or every three months.
- TSU: Single Social Fee is the contribution that is paid to Social Security for each worker that a company has. Currently, the TSU represents a rate of 23.75% on the salary of each worker.
- Municipal surcharge: This is a tax that will be paid to the municipality where the company is based. The municipal surcharge is applied to the company’s profits, and cannot exceed 1.5%. The amount may vary from city to city.
What documentation or information do you have to provide for the IRS statement?
Individuals who have obtained income that require them to file an IRS declaration can submit the IRS declaration. The declaration must include the income of the dependents that the person is in charge of or under shared custody or the natural persons that have obtained income in Portugal (property income or capital gains) on which they have not yet paid tax and, therefore, they need to report them to the IRS.
To submit the IRS declaration, you will need to use one of these authentication means to access the Finance Portal: access data to the Finance Portal; Citizen Card, PIN codes and card reader (allows to enter the portal but does not allow to submit the declaration); Digital Mobile Key (allows entering the portal but does not allow submitting the declaration).
