The NHR programme offers a flat tax rate of 0% on non Portugal derived income such as dividends, royalties and rental income.  Additionally, qualifying overseas pensions may be taxed at a reduced rate of 10% for a period of ten years. It is also worth talking with one of our advisors as there are ways to extend the benefits if you plan this early enough after being accepted for NHR status. We have seen clients receive significant tax savings over 18 - 20 years by following our system.

How long does the Non-Habitual Residency (NHR) tax programme last?
Plus Icon

The NHR tax programme lasts for 10 years. During this period, qualified individuals who meet the programme's criteria can take advantage of favourable tax conditions in the double taxation agreement host country. After the 10-year period of the NHR tax programme ends, you will be subject to the regular Portuguese tax regime. It is important to discuss with a financial advisor the implications of this, and how you can manage these changes.

Can I work in Portugal while on the Non-Habitual Residency (NHR) programme?

Yes, you can work in Portugal while on the NHR programme. However, the main tax benefits apply to passive income and pensions generated outside of Portugal.
