WEBINAR |Updates on changes to Portugal’s Non-Habitual Residents Tax Regime

After much speculation and the possibility of Portugal’s NHR tax regime shutting abruptly on 31 December 2023, the Portuguese government has just announced a transitional period for non-habitual resident (NHR) applications that will run from now until 31stDecember 2024, if by 31 December 2023 the applicant is considered officially registered as tax resident in Portugal and applies for NHR thereafter. It is therefore important to take action prior to 31 December 2023.

This welcome clarification comes after weeks of uncertainty and will reassure those who had planned to move full time to Portugal in the near term under the NHR that they can still apply in the coming weeks for the programme and take advantage of this very attractive tax planning option.

Currently the Portuguese NHR regime offers significant tax breaks for certain groups moving full time to Portugal, including workers, investors, retirees, and digital nomads.

However, uncertainty still surrounds the changes that may be made to the NHR regime since national elections will be held in Portugal on 10th March 2024 and the incoming  government may then revise the NHR programme again.

Join our webinar and learn more about the changes currently proposed and how you can still register under the NHR.

On Wednesday the 6th of December at 16hrs, join us, get the latest updates and learn why Portugal remains an attractive proposition for those reviewing their tax planning options.

The webinar will be moderated by Christina Hippisley, General Manager of the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK. She will be joined by  Chamber members:
