After you request to change your NIF address and remove your fiscal representative, the tax office typically provides a copy of your updated NIF document as confirmation.
In the event that you do not receive an updated NIF document, you can download a Certificate of Tax Residence (Certidão de Domicílio Fiscal) on Portal das Finanças to confirm your change of your address and withdrawal of fiscal representation.
