In order to incorporate or register a business in Portugal, one has to indicate what both the main activity and ancillary activities (if any) will be, preferably including the Portuguese classification code.
The Portuguese classification (CAE-Rev.3) corresponds exactly to the Eurostat classification (NACE Rev. 2) down to the 4th level, except that “551 – Hotels and similar accommodation” has been sub-divided into hotels with and without a restaurant, and that the Portuguese have added a 5th level, thereby having a more detailed classification.
The activity code of an existing company can be searched here.
