Now Brexit has happened, don’t delay any longer. If you’re thinking of moving to Portugal, 2020 is the year to do it!
Our seminar speakers will give you the most up-to-date facts on: How to effectively plan your tax and retirement income, where and how to buy your new home, mortgages, currencies, healthcare and daily life in Portugal.
Since the Brexit referendum in 2016, the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK has noticed a growing demand from the British public for more information about Portugal’s Non Habitual Tax regime, which is very attractive to those planning to retire abroad to Portugal or who wish to restructure their businesses and working lives.
UK nationals can currently benefit from these very favourable ‘non-habitual residence’ (NHR) tax rules during their first ten years in Portugal. To learn more about these, and other aspects of Moving to Portugal, come along to our Moving to Portugal seminars, try some Portuguese wines with us, meet our speakers and exhibitors, and learn more!
