With the new tax rules that were introduced on 1 January 2015 by Law 82-E/2014 of 31 December, only receipts/simplified receipts with the tax number are considered valid for income tax purposes.
Since its sales system has been certified by the Portuguese tax office, CP is able to issue tickets with a receipt/simplified receipt which will later be visible on the tax office E-fatura (electronic receipt) portal in the tax payer area for validation.
If passengers want a receipt/simplified receipt with their tax number on it they must insert the number when they buy the ticket and before it is issued so the details are on the document issued by CP at the sales time.
In case it is not possible to insert the tax number at the time of purchase of the ticket – for reasons attributable to CP – the customer has 30 working days to request the issuance of the receipt/simplified receipt with the tax number, by filling in the "Receipt Replacement", which must be delivered at any CP station or Customer Assistance Office, together with the original document. The customer can collect the receipt 20 working days after the corresponding request, with the signature of the 3rd part of the relevant form.
In case you want the receipt/simplified receipt to be sent via CTT (post) to the address yet to be indicated, you shall fill in the data regarding the SHIPPING ADDRESS.
If the original proof of payment is lost, please complete this form.
