Open-an-IT-Company-in-Portugal.jpgIT companies in Portugal can run under the rules of limited liability companies or LDAs as there are known. This is a common business structure that has an easy incorporation process and no harsh formalities with the entitled authorities in Portugal. With a multitude of activities, an IT company may represent a great business idea in this booming sector in Portugal, and for complete assistance and information about how you can open such company, we suggest you address your inquiries to our team of company formation agents in Portugal.

What are the types of activities of an IT company in Portugal?

The tech sector Portugal offers a wide range of opportunities to foreigners looking to expand their portfolios and to deal with activities like telecommunication, helpdesk support, software optimization, network services, email support, or cloud computing. Many companies in Portugal decide to externalize the IT support services instead of opening a department in this direction. The reasons for such an option are mostly related to the costs for equipment and experienced staff. An IT company can serve to many enterprises and can provide the necessary support in terms of communication, internet, and office equipment.
