As a freelancer who arrived in Portugal in 2023, I was looking for a way to easily and confidently set up my business here. That's when I found Portugal OS. As a beta tester, I was able to access their comprehensive guide and in just a few weeks, I was able to launch my business and start invoicing my clients. I was drawn to Portugal for the tax benefits and thanks to Portugal OS, I was able to make the most of them. I highly recommend this guide for anyone looking to set up their freelancing activity in Portugal."

I was paying high monthly fees to my accountant for filling out compliant invoices and social security statements. But when I found Portugal OS and accessed their guide as a beta tester, I was blown away. I realised that it would take me just as much time to send my expenses and customer invoices to my accountant and explain the details through email as it would be to do it myself. So I cancelled my accounting service in the end of the year and haven't looked back since. Portugal OS makes it easy to understand and navigate the process of running a freelancing business in Portugal. I highly recommend it.
