Accounting Rules

Tax Year
The tax year generally corresponds to the calendar year, although a different tax year is possible for resident companies and non-resident companies with a permanent establishment in Portugal. Once selected, the same tax accounting period must be maintained for at least five years.
Accounting Standards
IFRS Standards apply to all domestic and foreign public companies. SMEs may choose between IFRS Standards as adopted by the EU and Portuguese national accounting standards. Subsidiaries of foreign non-IFRS companies must use Portuguese accounting standards.
