Tax Changes for Expat Pensioners Announced 05/02/20 – Red Tape / Business – Expats Portugal Forum

Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Understand the Portuguese Parliament passed an amendment on 5th February to state that expat pensioners will now have to pay a flat rate of 10% on their foreign income in Portugal. 

I wonder if anyone has further information on this.

I believe this charge is directed at the Non-Habitual Resident scheme. If you are not part of this arrangement there will be no change.
