Why Portugal?

Over the last few years, Portugal has become a popular destination for foreigners that are looking for a lower cost of living, good weather, and a laid-back lifestyle. The good news is, there are a range of different immigration options based on your income or investment made in Portugal.

From a business perspective, Portugal is a very attractive option for being a member of the European Union (EU). In addition, you don't need to be a Portuguese citizen or even a Portuguese resident to open your company.

Whether you're moving or opening a business in Portugal, there are several tax programs like the non-habitual resident status which you may be able to benefit from.


Company Incorporation

This service includes drafting a Power of Attorney (allowing us to act on your behalf), issuing your Portuguese Tax Identification Number (NIF), drafting the Articles of Association, and registering your company at the Commercial Registry.Learn More


With our expertise in immigration law, we will help you choose the most suitable visa for your situation. We will then help you gather all the necessary documents and support you throughout the process for the best outcome possible.

Tax Advice

As a new resident in Portugal, it can be difficult to understand the Portuguese tax system and how it will apply to you. We can prepare a personalized tax study and help you take advantage of any tax benefits you might be eligible for.

Real Estate

Whether you're looking for an investment opportunity or a place to call home, we can help you with the process of due diligence by reviewing the property documents as well as assisting you with the real estate transaction itself.

Tax Identification Number (NIF)

Having a Portuguese Tax Identification Number (NIF) is mandatory if you want to sign any type of contract in Portugal. We will draft a Power of Attorney so we can issue your NIF without you having to deal with any bureaucracy.Learn More
