1.1 Among the various legal structures available according to Portuguese law, investors have generally chosen one of the two existing forms of limited liability companies: the Private limited company (Sociedade por Quotas - Lda.) and the stock corporation (Sociedade Anónima - S.A.). http://www.pacsa.pt/artigos/ing/incorpcomport.2.0.htm
First step: get Portuguese company name approuval which will be granted by Registo Nacional de Pessoas Colectivas (Companies National Registry). If the Portuguese company intents to use your company name you should enclose a dully legalised translation of the certificate of incorporation with the same name. The name should end with a "Lda.", "Limitada" (for limited company by "quotas"), "S.A." or "Sociedade Anónima" (for limited company by shares) extensions. This name approuval should provide also a Portuguese VAT number for the company. http://ip.pt/~ip000342/Legal Information.html
