Hi,

Currently the CheckNIF action is not aceppting numbers starting with the algarism 8.
Following the website https://www.nif.pt/ in the home page you can read the following, indicating that NIF starting wih '8' is valid for "businessman in individual name":


We had this problem for some of our clients, and after validating their NIF in the website, corrected for our business.

Best regards,

Francisco Faustino

Sorry that information is wrong.

You can check it here, but if you don't like Wikipedia and like a more official source you can also find it here.

Numbers started with 8 are obsolete, they are no longer used or valid.

This is the screenshot of page 7 of the official pdf, no starting digit 8 is available:

Hi Pedro!

Thank you so much! WIKIPEDIA, is valuable but not what I can consider a point of truth... I was cracking my brain over this.

However... what about the NIF numbers starting with 74?
Validation tools does not allow it, are they not yet being used?


Thank you,

Francisco Faustino

Yes those are recent additions as it was for the starting digit 3 (was valid but not used yet, until early this year)

That one needs to be added, thank you.

Best regards,

Added a new version to accept the numbers started with 74.
