New platform Empresa 2.0


The new Empresa Online 2.0 platform, which succeeds Empresa Online, created in 2006, was launched on May 26, 2023.

This project, financed by the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP), aims to strengthen the competitiveness of Portuguese economy by simplifying and reducing bureaucracy in the process of incorporating companies in Portugal.

The service is available on Portal da Justiça for any citizen, or group of citizens, who hold a digital signature, and for lawyers, notaries, and paralegals.

The Company 2.0 platform allows the incorporation of sole shareholder companies, private limited companies and also public limited companies, a feature that had been suspended since 2017.

In compliance with the “Only Once” principle, the Empresa Online 2.0 portal ensures the pre-filling of information from shareholders who, by agreeing to participate in the company to be incorporated, will only have to authorize the use of data from Public Administration databases.

On the other hand, the new platform ensures interoperability with other Public Administration entities, namely with the Tax Authority, Social Security, SIBS, AMA and CTT.

Empresa Online 2.0 also makes available a company file, through which it is possible to consult past interactions with the Commercial Registry, since the company’s incorporation to its eventual extinction. It is expected that, in the future, it will allow the submission of the Declaration of Beneficial Owner when the company is created.
