According to Portuguese Decree Law 193/2005 and in order to allow the holding of Portuguese debt securities, customers must provide a Portuguese Debt Securities - One-time Declaration of Beneficial Ownership certifying that the final beneficial owners do not fall into the market-specific categories that are not entitled to exemption from Portuguese withholding tax.

Note: Law 83/2013, which removed the restrictions on holdings by or on behalf of non-exempt beneficial owners at the ICSDs, remains applicable only to securities still falling under the previous wording of Decree Law 193/2005.
