FISCAL ADVANTAGES AND GOLDEN VISA PROGRAM
Non-Residents - Tax Incentives Program
The Non-Resident Tax Regime was introduced by the Portuguese Government in 2009. The main objective is to attract potential buyers and their families to become non-habitual tax residents in Portugal, in exchange for a reduction in personal taxation.
Wages, dividends, pensions and investment income may be subject to a beneficial tax in Portugal and exempt from taxes in the country of origin of the applicants. In some cases, there may be a total tax exemption both in Portugal and in the country of origin.
The main requirement is to become a Non-Resident Portuguese Resident. The tax benefits are guaranteed for 10 years.
