Moving to Portugal - Seminars
Organised by the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK.


Ever considered moving to Portugal? Join the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce (UK) for it's no obligation series of informative seminars regarding the benefits and obstacles to moving to Portugal.

The Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK, has for many years been the unbiased promoter of the brand Portugal. Post Brexit, the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK has experienced a growing number of enquiries from the British public for more information regarding the process of acquiring residence in Portugal.

There has been special interest in the tax benefits of choosing Portugal for your residence, with specific reference to the Non Habitual Residence Tax regime. The Non Habitual Residence Tax regime is tax efficient and flexible which is very attractive to those planning to retire to Portugal or alternatively relocate their business to Portugal.

The Investment Tax Code, created by Decree-Law n. 249/2009, approved on September 23rd, implemented a Personal Income tax regime for the Non-Regular residents, with the purpose of attracting to Portugal non-resident professionals qualified for activities with high added value intellectual or industrial propriety or know-how, as well as beneficiaries of pension schemes granted abroad.
