Further Moving to Portugal seminars to take place in London on Monday 23rd October
On Monday 23rd October 2017 in central London, the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK is organising the 3rd edition of our popular "Moving to Portugal" seminars.
These will take place in the Lisbon Suite at the Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel & Spa, 354 Queenstown Road, London SW11 8AE. The nearest Tube station is Sloane Square which is approx. 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel. The number 137 and 452 buses stop outside the hotel.
The Moving to Portugal seminars are designed to answer all the questions you may have about how to organise your move to Portugal, whether you intend to run your business from there, retire there or simply spend several months a year there to escape the English climate.
On the day, the doors will open at 11am and close at 9pm. The first seminar begins at 11.30am and will last approx. two hours, with a coffee break in the middle for half an hour. The seminar will then be repeated at 3pm and 6.30pm to allow more visitors to attend the seminars during the afternoon and after work.
Within each two-hour seminar there will be eight short 15 minute presentations from specialists on the following subjects:
· the legal aspects of buying a property in Portugal,
· the range and prices of properties for sale in the Algarve and the areas around Lisbon and Porto,
· how to plan your tax and financial affairs in advance of your move,
· how to structure mortgage finance,
· how Portugal’s Non Habitual Residence (NHR) programme works,
· all aspects of healthcare and later living in Portugal.
Staff from all the companies presenting at the seminars will be present throughout the day on their stands to answer your questions and to talk in private with guests.
Also present will be staff from companies working for leading resorts in the Algarve together with a team from the Resident, Portugal’s leading expatriate weekly newspaper.
Come along and meet us all, try some Portuguese wine, and plan your move towards a sunnier lifestyle!
For many years, UK nationals wanting to retire to a more relaxing lifestyle in sunnier climes have chosen to move to Portugal.
From the golf courses, beaches and restaurants in the Algarve to the vineyards and culture of Porto, Lisbon and the north, there is a home and way of life to suit everyone
In addition, UK nationals moving to Portugal can now benefit from Portugal’s very favourable 'non-habitual residence' tax rules during their first ten years in Portugal.
About the Seminars
Our seminars focus on some of the practical aspects UK nationals should consider ahead of a move such as:
Where should I move to?
What do I need to be aware of when buying property?
How does the Portuguese health system work?
How do the 'non habitual residence' rules work and would I qualify?
How will I be taxed?
What are the implications of Brexit?
How can I minimise the impact of a falling pound?
There is no charge for the seminars and refreshments will be provided on arrival and afterwards. The series of talks within each seminar address the areas listed above, for a total of around two hours with a coffee break in the middle, after the first hour.
Afterwards you will then have the opportunity to explore the issues from your perspective, on an informal basis, with any of the speakers over drinks and nibbles.
