During the year we constantly see our customers come and go, most of them arriving or leaving with a mix of feelings, depending on their future expectations and what they have professsionally or personally experienced and achieved. However, it’s a well known fact that this is the time of year when it’s more difficult to leave our country: lovely beaches, shining blue seas, local “festas” and summer parties are all around, our amazing climate embraces us and everything seems so much better! So here’s a piece of advice: put your leaving plans aside and just enjoy the best of summer. Or if you’re thinking of coming to Portugal to live, why not come on a pre-orientation visit this summer?
Portugal also has a Non Habitual Residents status (NHR) that gives the opportunity to those who wish to become residents in Portugal to benefit from a favourable taxation of foreign income, with an exemption of taxation in Portugal and a possible double exemption, both in Portugal and in the country where the income is paid, if a Double Taxation Agreement is in place. The only requirement to benefit from this preferential treatment is to become a Portuguese tax resident, not having been a tax resident in Portugal in the previous five years.
