Non-habitual Residency – Portugal

Another exciting residency regime is the nonhabitual residency. This regime brings exceptional tax benefits to those becoming a tax resident in Portugal.

Non-habitual residents do not have to pay tax on certain types of income and a flat rate of 20% is due on others. Bearers of this status can thus increase their net income, and avoid inheritance and gift taxation in Portugal.

Although in most cases residents can enjoy their retirement with a tax-free pension each case has to be examined. Using our valuable experience in taxation we can confirm your particular situation after examination of your sources of income and double taxation agreements between your country and Portugal, guiding you through the decision- making process, and advising you on possible legal requirements and all other aspects that fall under this exceptional scheme. When the decision is made, we will ensure this is a stressfree process.
