Tax Specialists

Portugal has a wide network of double taxation treaties, including a specific convention with Spain that reduces tax due on dividends, interest, and royalties. Changing tax regimes are often more challenging than any other business requirement, and Portugal’s tax system incorporates both federal and municipal charges, with rigid and complex rules around transfer pricing, and monthly filings.

Corporation tax is currently 21% (over the first €25,000), but there are also State and Municipal surcharges levied, which range from around 4% to 10.5% depending on profits.

We’re experts in international taxation and our team in Lisbon can help you navigate local tax requirements with ease, using our purpose-built tax automation technology.

  • Tax compliance – covering multinational, federal, state, and municipal taxes
  • Official Books and Annual Accounts
  • Assistance with tax inspections and audits
