Portugal makes it mandatory to declare the SAF-T accounting file

January 19, 20220

Type: Legislation

Beginning in 2024, the Portuguese tax administration has decreed that the reporting of SAF-T accounting files would be mandatory. 

When it launched its e-VAT declaration project in 2016, the Direcção Geral de Contribuições e Impostos (DGCI) announced the SAFT-PT accounting file initiative. It had not set a date for implementation until today.  Following the mandatory adoption of the SAFT-PT invoice and transport documentation in 2014, this electronic tax document was added. 

The SAFT-PT accounting file’s use cases and attributes, as well as transmission mechanisms, are defined in the Portaria 48/2020 directive. 

Effective date: 1 January 2024
