Understanding Portugal’s Golden Visa for British Buyers

Following the UK’s departure from the EU, Cluttons’ office in Portugal has seen a spike in interest from UK buyers looking to take advantage of the country’s popular Golden Visa program.

Webinar: Understanding Portugal’s Golden Visa for Britsh buyers

Date & Time: 1pm – 2pm, Tuesday 25 May 2021

The program grants residence status to non-EU investors who invest from 280,000 Euros in the property market allowing them to live, conduct business and travel freely in the Schengen area. With Brexit implications restricting Brits from working, and limiting time allowed in the EU, the Golden Visa program is now on the radar of British buyers.

Another national scheme, the non-habitual resident program (NHR), offers a flat rate of tax on foreign sourced income, including pension, if applicants spend at least half the year in Portugal, appealing for British retirees.

So, what does this mean for holiday home owners and people thinking of buying in Portugal?

Join us at 1pm on Tuesday 25 May 2021 for a virtual event where we examine the Golden Visa and NHR program, how to qualify and apply, tax considerations, and implications for working, visiting and travel.
