Did you receive a Payment Notice?

ESSE displays a Payment Notice on the front glass of your vehicle in case the parking value has not been paid.

The value is the maximum amount you would pay if you left the car parked at that location for 24 hours, subtracting the amount already paid.

How can I pay the Payment Notice?

If you received the Payment Notice, you have, as from the issue of the document, the maximum term of 72 hours, to proceed with your payment.

Payment can be made exclusively through the following forms:

Through the ATM

In the Payment Notice you will find all the necessary information to be able to make the payment using the entity and reference issued.

Billing requests:

In accordance with Article 40 (5), al. B) of the VAT Code, the ticket withdrawn from the parking meter is equivalent to the billing issuance, so simply fill in the NIF manually on the back of the ticket!

Regarding the payment of notices posted in vehicles and settlements received by letter, you can request the bill in our stores or at rates.esse.pt, within a maximum of 5 days after payment.

What if I do not pay a Payment Notice?

The notices represent a public parking fee settlement made by ESSE due to the lack of payment due on the parking meter.

This way, we sensitize all our clients to pay for the parking of their vehicle through the on-site parking meters.

Failure to pay the parking fee sent by us will result in a maximum rate corresponding to the amount you would have paid if you left the car parked there for a full day, subtracting the amount already paid.

If the settlement made by us is not paid within the maximum period defined in the notice, a new notification will be sent to the residence, with the value of the notice, plus default interest and administrative costs.

Failure to pay the fee notified by letter also implies, according to the applicable legislation (Article 148 of the Code of Procedure and Tax Procedure and Article 12 of the General Regime of Local Government Charges), charging through an enforcement process Supervisor.

In addition to the maximum value, the driver incurs a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of € 30 to € 150, under the terms of the Road Code, whose competence for supervision, instruction and decision is the responsibility of the National Highway Safety Authority.
