Novomove is one of several web-based companies that help prospective expats secure essential documents like a NIF number or open a Portuguese bank account. For non-EU residents, in particular, having these things is often necessary for a successful visa application (e.g. D7 application).
Portugalist readers are able to get a €10 discount on any service when they use the code PORTUGALIST.
Currently, Novomove offers the following services:
|Portuguese Bank Account
- NIF Number: Novomove offer one of the cheapest NIF services. Although not quite the cheapest (the cheapest is NIFPortugal.com) Novomove’s service has the benefit that no fiscal representative is required.
- Portuguese Bank Account: Novomove offer an account opening service with Novomove for €290.
- NISS Number: Novomove are able to obtain a NISS number for €140. This is the same price as E-Residence, another company that offers this service.
When it comes to obtaining a NIF number of opening a Portuguese bank account, there are slightly cheaper options than Novomove. Anchorless, for example, offers a very affordable 25% off when you get a NIF and bank account package, which brings the costs down to €269.25 – cheaper than the cost of just the bank account with Novomove.
However, where Novomove believes they can help expats is that their NIF service doesn’t require fiscal representation. Many competing services charge an annual fee for fiscal representation (if the customer doesn’t cancel it) and Novomove don’t.
