Car Tax Exemption Under Residency

Hi

I am looking to move to Portugal from Andorra, under the non-habitual residency program next year. I would like to bring a car with me that I might purchase, I will only buy the car if it will qualify for tax exemption by the time I move.

I have some questions about the ISV and import tax. I need some initial help to understand the criteria.

This article https://eportugal.gov.pt/en/servicos/pedir-a-isencao-do-imposto-sobre-veiculos-quando-se-vem-morar-para-portugal says:

have purchased the vehicle in the country of origin or in a country where resided previously and paid all the required taxes in that country, without profiting from any fiscal benefit when the vehicle was brought to Portugal.

1. What do they mean by fiscal benefit? Andorran tax is 4.5% Portugal tax is 23% is that a fiscal benefit?

Thanks v much in advance!

One more question, if I buy the car in another country and import it into Andorra, pay the import tax in Andorra and register it here is that ok. OR do I have to buy it here from the outset

 

Thanks,

Ben
