You will need to apply for a Tax roll number (AFM). An AFM number is required to legally work in Greece (for national insurance and tax), to rent and buy property, or to buy a car or motorcycle.

You can apply for an AFM number at the local tax office with a copy of your passport and your birth certificate. Once you have obtained an AFM number, you are registered with the tax authorities and are required to submit a yearly tax return regardless of income.
