How does an investor prove job creation for the Portuguese Golden Visa?

I am thinking of starting a financial services advisory company in Lisbon. I would also like to use the investment for the Portuguese Golden Visa. How and when would I prove the job creation occurred?

    The 10 jobs creation, an option for the Portuguese Golden Visa program, consists of the investor hiring 10 people. The proof can be made by filing at SEF application, the Portuguese social security certificate issued within the prior 45 days confirming that the 10 employees are registered, together with the respective individual employment contracts. It is also recommended to submit the payrolls of such employees. In this option of investment, it will be important to pay attention to the hiring rules in Portugal as well as to the requirements of the labor contracts.
