Start invoicing with Rauva

Below we will be going over how you can start issuing invoices with Rauva.

To start issuing invoices, you must first create a user associated with your tax portal.

It is important to note that the user creation and association to the Rauva app only has to be done once.


Where to start?

First, go to the Portuguese Tax Authority website:

  1. Access the Tax Portal ( and login with your business existing credentials. Note: If you are a freelancer, use your login credentials; In the case of being a company, use the company's login credentials.

  2. After logging in, click on the magnifying glass and search for "Gestão de Utilizadores", using the search bar at the top. Click on the magnifying glass again to search.


  3. Select the first option "Gestão de Utilizadores".


  4. Then, click on "Criar um novo utilizador", to create the Sub User ID.


  5. Fill in all the fields, define the access password (keep this nearby, you need it in future steps)

    • Then where you see Operações Autorizadas, you must activate:
      • WSE - Comunicação e Gestão de séries por webservice
      • WFA - Comunicação de dados de faturas
      • Additionally, if you issue transport guides, you must also activate WDT - Comunicação de dados de documentos de transportes
  6. Then, click Submeter.


The new Sub User ID should look something like this: 234000000/1. I.e.: (NIF/1).

After your user is created, you can now associate it to your Rauva account.

Here is how:

  1. From the Menu, select Invoices > and then click Continue;
  2. Enter the Sub User ID and password you just set up in the Portuguese Tax Authority Portal;
  3. Indicate how you normally report invoices (Automatic or via SAF-T file) and what your VAT rate is.

And congratulations!

You're all set to create your first invoice.
