Who Is This Service For?

Imagine that you are retiring tomorrow? How much money would you like to or need to write yourself a cheque for
to ensure that you will have enough in the bank to last you, your spouse and possibly even your family for one year in retirement?

One of the most fundamental issues for you to think about when deciding on your financial planning options is to make sure that you are preparing for your retirement sufficiently and appropriately. Many expatriates do not get ahead in the retirement race by saving hard as they are scared of this approach encroaching on their standard of living today. However, with careful planning it is easy to get ahead without hindering your current lifestyle.

  • Initial discussion to determine your retirement goals and current circumstances
  • Free Report and recommendation sent via email
  • This will include a step by step guide as to the best course of action

Who Is This Service For?

Even if you have an existing financial advisor, it is unlikely they will be able to introduce you to the tax-saving opportunities available in your new country of residence.

Furthermore, a local advisor in your new country will more likely understand your unique expatriate status, how that relates to any tax saving potential in the nation in which you are residing, and how you need to structure your affairs appropriately in case you should ever want to repatriate or relocate elsewhere. 

Planned correctly, a move to another country can have some very special future tax advantages.

What does this service consist of?

  • Initial discussion to determine your tax liability and current circumstances
  • Free Report and recommendation sent via email, including advice on how to minimise succession taxes
  • Follow-up discussion to explain the detail and answer any initial questions

Holiday Home Mortgages

Holiday home mortgages are generally for non-resident property buyers who do not live in Portugal. The maximum borrowing amount is up to 70% of the property purchase price (or valuation if lower). Lenders offer fixed, variable and, in some cases, mixed rates.

For variable rate mortgages, the rates are based on the annual Euribor reference rate with a percentage margin added to this, for example, annual Euribor + 2%. 

We will help you negotiate the very best mortgage conditions available in the market at any given time.

Primary Residence Mortgages

Primary residence mortgages are for those where the property in Portugal will be their main residence and they already pay their income tax here, or in exceptional cases are about to start paying taxes here.

For this type of mortgage, it is possible to secure mortgages up to 80% of the property purchase price.

Your English-speaking mortgage broker will help you to overcome the administrative difficulties often encountered when obtaining a mortgage in a country different to the one where your earnings originate.
