NHR can benefit from a special flat rate fiscal rate of 20% if you have a home in Portugal and become a tax resident in Portugal.
The Portuguese Non-Habitual Residency (NHR) status enables those who become tax resident in Portugal, and are accepted as NHR, the opportunity to receive qualifying income tax free both in Portugal and in the country of source of the income.
The NHR regime represents a major step forward in making Portugal a tax free jurisdiction for individuals in receipt of qualifying non-resident income. Qualifying income includes pension, dividend, royalty and interest income.
This attractive regime also covers professional income from high value-added activities, which benefit from a special flat tax rate of 20%.
The sole requirement to benefit from this preferential treatment is to become a Portuguese tax resident, not having been a tax resident in Portugal in the previous five years. This status is granted for 10 years.
If you are interested in benefiting from this regime, we provide the services needed to handle the process with the Portuguese tax authorities.
