Seamless, Easy... Worth Every Cent!

I needed a NIF, because to do anything in Portugal, you need one. I was hesitant to approach the Tax Office because I'm not yet confident in the language and the process. While the NIF itself is free, paying the small fee to Anchorless has been priceless. They took the hassle out of the entire process, seamlessly collecting the information they need and doing the work for you, while you sit back and relax. I was skeptical at first, but as promised, within 5 days - I had all the official paperwork in my mailbox. I will happily be using them again in the future as I plan out my future Portugal journey.
