Introduction

For many years, UK nationals wanting to retire to sunnier climes with a relaxing quality lifestyle have chosen to move to Portugal.

Its long cultural heritage is still evident today, fascinating for visitors with even a passing interest in history. And with year round sunshine, golden beaches, breath-taking views, almost 1000 kilometres of beautiful mainland coastline, and golf courses, properties and restaurants that cater for every taste, Portugal offers a lifestyle for business people or retirees that is second to none.

Post Brexit, the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK has noticed a growing demand from the British public for more information about Portugal’s Non Habitual Tax regime, which is very attractive to those planning to retire abroad to Portugal or restructure their businesses.

UK nationals can currently benefit from these very favourable 'non-habitual residence' (NHR) tax rules during their first ten years in Portugal. To learn more about these, and other aspects of Moving to Portugal, come along to the seminars, try some Portuguese wines with us, and learn more!

Visitors can listen to our expert speakers giving short presentations throughout the day. Topics include how and where to buy a home, the legal process,  tax planning, mortgages and foreign exchange.

And come and talk to Portugal’s top resorts and property agents who will also be present, with lots of properties for sale!

About the Seminars

On the day, the doors will open at 11am and close at 9pm. The first seminar begins at 11.30am and will last approximately take two hours, with a coffee break in the middle for half an hour. The seminar will then be repeated at 3pm and 6.30pm. The seminars are free to attend but due to their popularity it is necessary to reserve your place in advance. 

Within each two hour seminar there will be 6 short (15 minute) presentations from specialists on the following subjects:

· Where to buy – and where are the property investment hotspots?

· The legal aspects of buying a property in Portugal

· How to plan your tax and financial affairs in advance of the move

· How banking and mortgage finance works in Portugal

· How Portugal’s Non Habitual Residence (NHR) tax programme works

· How to plan your currency needs


Alongside the exhibitors, staff from all the companies presenting at the seminars will be present throughout the day on their stands to answer your questions and to talk in private with you.
