Portugal is booming.
The country has left the debt crisis behind, the economy is growing again, and more and more foreign seniors are settling in Portugal. Many come not only for the sun but also for the tax breaks.
In Portugal, emigrants have the benefit from special status, the “residente não habitual“. Portugal is the only EU country in which pensions and capital benefits from newcomers – including those from Switzerland – are tax-exempt. In addition, newcomers who work in Portugal as scientists, artists, or in a profession with high added value, have the benefit from a flat rate of 20 percent. This includes top management from companies, doctors, architects, engineers, tax consultants, and investors.
