Olà a todos! I thought I’d start a new thread on a particular topic as there doesn’t seem to be much recent info or activity on this topic.
I’ll explain my situation and hopefully I can get some information from the community!
I’m an EU member state citizen but have been living in Japan for most of the past 15 years. I’ll be moving to Portugal this July. I am self-employed/freelancing as an EFL/ESL teacher online. Most of my students are private individuals who pay me directly through bank transfer while others pay me through a couple of student-teacher matching sites.
What I’ve read so far is that I can “formally invoice clients” via recibos verdes. My students just pay me without any kind of invoicing or formal documentation. It’s all basically verbal agreements, as in, “I’ll do this for you and you pay me, yeah?” “Yeah, it’s a deal.”
I’d like to know how I would be able to work like this in Portugal and what I would have to do to register as a freelancer under this format?
