I'm new here.
I'm looking for anyone who moved from another country permanently to Portugal and continues to work remotely as an employee of the same company in the country of origin.
In general, I'm looking for insight into the problems encountered in this situation when you keep your contract as an employee, like taxes and social security.
Disregarding the residency issue, which I don't have a problem with because I'm a Portuguese citizen,
1. did you continue to contribute to the Social Security in the companies country?
2. did your employer have to register as an employer in Portugal?
3. were you eligible for the NHR regime?
More details about my situation:
I'm a Portuguese and Canadian citizen, have been living in Canada for 12 years, currently working from home for 3 years.
My employer allowed me to move to Portugal and continue to work for them, which is fantastic, because I love my job, yet I would like my kids to grow up in Portugal.
I would also like to keep contributing towards my Canadian pension, and keep other employee benefits like employee stock options.
However, I'm contacting some accounting firms in Portugal to help me prepare for my future tax situation.
I'm learning that I might have to do a new contract with the employer, and the employer needs to be registered in Portugal.
So I would like to hear from someone who is in a similar situation, to see what their experience was.
I appreciate the insight,
