For many years, UK nationals wanting to retire to sunnier climes with a relaxing quality lifestyle have for many years chosen to move to Portugal. 
From the golf courses, beaches and restaurants in the Algarve to the vineyards and culture of Porto, Lisbon and the north, there is a villa and lifestyle to suit all. 
On top of that, UK nationals can benefit from the very favourable 'non-habitual residence' tax rules during their first ten years in Portugal. 

Our seminar will explore the lifestyle and location options in Portugal, and what you need to consider when it comes to:
Property  •  Non-habitual residence  •  Brexit  •  Currency 

There is no charge for the seminar. Book now as places are limited. Refreshments will be served on arrival and after the presentation.

About Portugal

'Wet or fine, the air of Portugal has a natural happiness in it and the people of the country should be as happy and prosperous as any people in the world.' - HG Wells

Portugal is the oldest nation state in Europe and the Portuguese Empire was the first global empire in history and the Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 effectively gave Portugal half of the 'new world' at that time. Its culture heritage is evident today with medieval castles and villages with cobblestone streets that fascinate all with even a passing interest in history. With year round sunshine, golden beaches, breathtaking views, almost 1000 kilometres of beautiful mainland coastline, and golf courses and restaurants to cater for every taste, Portugal offers a lifestyle in retirement second to none.

About the Seminars

On Wednesday 10 May 2017 we will be hosting seminars focusing on some of the practical aspects UK nationals should consider ahead of a move such as:

Where should I move?

What do I need to be aware of in buying property?

How do the 'non habitual residence' rules work and would I qualify?

How will I be taxed?

What are the implications of Brexit?

How can I act when the pound improves against the euro?

There is no charge for the seminar and refreshments will be provided on arrival and afterwards. The series of talks within the seminar will address the areas listed above, for a total of around one and a half hours. Afterwards you will then have the opportunity to explore the issues from your perspective, on an informal basis, with any of the speakers over drinks and nibbles.
