Your Tax benefits


Portugal has decided to adopt an attractive tax policy for new residents, including retired.


Device exempting taxes on retirement pensions :
Pursuant to Decree No. 249-2009 to Circular No. 9-2012, Portugal gives new residents the status of Resident Non Usual. This status allows such a total exemption from tax on your pension for 10 years.

Obtaining the status of Habitual Resident Non requires only two conditions :
- Reside in Portugal at least 183 days / year
- Not have been tax resident in Portugal over the last 5 years

Golden Device Visa

For citizens outside the EU and Schengen Européene wishing to benefit from a "residence permit" including facilitating travel and trade in Europe.

The Golden Visa is issued in one of three assumptions :
- Acquisition of property worth of mimimum 500 000 euros (under certain conditions)
- Transfer of 1 million euro capital (under certain conditions)
- Creation and maintenance of a certain number of jobs
