Have you completed all the steps to becoming a registered resident in Portugal, such as registering with your Câmara to obtain your certificate of registration of residency as an EU citizen (often abbreviated to residência) and then exhibiting that to your Finanças office so they can record you as a Portuguese resident? The 'prova de residencia' from your Junta you mention sounds more like a proof of address (sometimes used in the absence of property ownership documentation or rental/lease documentation) which might be needed at the Câmara.

You can check your status at https://www.portaldasfinancas.gov.pt...DadosGerais.do in the Domicílio Fiscal section.

When you have your ducks all in a row, the application for NHR can be done at https://www.portaldasfinancas.gov.pt...edido/begin.do, making sure that you apply for the correct year before the deadline passes.

Thank you so much for your very swift reply, Richard.
I have checked my status as you suggested and it shows that I am resident in the UK, so clearly I have not registered as a Portuguese resident yet. Forgive my ignorance but do I do that at my junta or the financas in my local town of Tavira? Also, what should I take along with me in the way of documentation? Lastly, if I register within the next couple of weeks, what is the correct year I should be applying for? Given my evident ineptitude, do you think I will be able to complete the process myself?
Thanks again.

Lewis

See my post #8.

You register residency at your Câmara. The documentation required can vary but assuming you are registering at the property you own and it's on file (see https://www.portaldasfinancas.gov.pt...patrimonio.jsp) it will probably be easy enough.

You would apply for NHR status for 2019 but would have until the end of March 2020 to make the application.

Hello Richard.

Thank you so much for your swift and succinct information. My property was shown at the link you gave me, so I will go to the Camara tomorrow and thence on to the Financas to get change of address from UK to Portugal.
Best regards,

Lewis
