It has been published in the official website of the Portuguese Tax Authority, the new postponement of the deadline to comply with the obligation to prepare and submit the transfer pricing file, to which large taxpayers are subject, under article 130, no. 3, of the Corporate Income Tax (“IRC”) Code, to September 15th, 2020 (in line with the postponement of the submission of the IES/DA). 
The Government approved some legislative changes regarding SAF-T (PT) accounting file and reporting obligation on the establishments where invoices are issued through Decree-Law no. 48/2020, of 28 August. We highlight below the principal measures.
IRC periodic return (Model 22) can be submitted and corresponding tax can be paid until today, without any penalty, as decided by the Portuguese Government, by Order 296/2020XXII, given the constraints presented by companies and accountants in the context of the pandemic Covid-19.
In the context of the extraordinary measures adopted to minimize the impact of new coronavirus (COVID-19) on the Portuguese economy, the Secretary of State for Tax Affairs, through Order no. 258/2020-XXII, of 16 June, decided to extend the deadline of the first payment on account due by taxpayers who obtain professional and business income (category B) from July 20 to August 31, without the application of any penalties.
A set of clarifications was made available in the official website of the Portuguese Tax Authorities (“AT”) regarding the obligation to submit the transfer pricing file to which some taxpayers are subject (please check our previous Tax Alert), following the amendments introduced by Law no. 119/2019, 18 September, to numbers 3 and 4 of article 130 of the Corporate Income Tax (“IRC”) Code.
