Who Is This Service For?

Retirement planning

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.

What Does This Service Consist Of?

  • 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
  • Follow up discussion to explain the detail and answer any initial questions
  • Ongoing support and wealth management

Succession Planning Service
Succession Planning Service

Who Is This Service For?

Succession Planning

Your previous financial adviser in your country of origin may not be able to introduce you to the potential tax saving and financially enhancing opportunities available in your new country of residence.

Furthermore, only suitably qualified financial advisors are able to 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, including back to the UK, 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
  • Ongoing support and wealth management

Holiday Home Mortgages

Mortgage Service

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.
