Our New Office in Lisbon - RHJ Accountants

We’ve expanded the business! We’re glad to say that we’ve officially opened up our new office in Lisbon, Portugal and are looking forward to welcoming you all there soon. Opening up this new branch gives us more space and the ability to have face-to-face meetings with clients who travel to the area. We’re looking forward to expanding our services in the region, and we’d liked to remind you of the services we can offer. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

Accountancy Services

Typically, people are considering hiring an accountant when it’s time to submit a tax return, which of course is a service we provide, but we think it’s best to maximise your savings by starting a monthly accountancy service. If your main goal is tax savings, but you’re not willing to spend the time and understanding necessary to make this happen on your own, you should come to us. With a team of qualified professionals, we can offer you reviews, planning, savings, and advice on how to invest your money to your best advantage.

Here are just a few areas we can help you with:

– Tax planning & preparation
– Corporation tax services
– International tax planning
– Personal tax planning & preparation

You can learn more about how we can help you with your accounts by visiting our page.

Company Incorporation

With two main business structures in Portugal, it’s important to know which option would be most suitable for you; either registering as an Limitada (Limited Liability Company) or a Sociedade Anónima. Whatever you decide is best; in Portugal you must have an appointed accountant prior to incorporation. Our team will help you create a business bank account, arrange VAT registration and keep your bookkeeping records in check.

Trade in Portugal is favourable due to its 5% corporate tax rate and its Non-Habitual Residency, which offers a flat tax rate of 20%. As part of our partnership, we can also provide full marketing services to ensure your business gets off to a successful start.

If you don’t want to incorporate your business yet and want to keep it small for now, you could set up in Portugal as a sole trader (or freelancer). We recently held a webinar about How to Become a Successful Freelancer in Portugal and are offering the recording for FREE; which will help you better understand the role of a freelancer.

Wealth Management

Our trusted partner offers a wide range of wealth management services, including life insurance, mortgages, expat and emigration services, pensions, and investments. They have a proven track record of providing a broad spectrum of financial services ranging from corporate financial advice and individual financial planning in the UK to specialist financial services such as overseas pension transfer arrangements for expatriates. Our trusted partner can provide you with a good and reliable service no matter where you live in the world; they know the various tax laws for clients who live overseas.

Do you require wealth management? Contact us today for assistance.

Services for Expats

We can help you take advantage of the significant tax advantages Portugal has to offer, whether you’re a British or American citizen. Knowing how difficult it can be arriving in a new country and without an understanding of their tax laws, we want to provide guidance and avoid these headaches. Because we have associates across the EU and US, we’re very familiar with tax-saving Non-Habitual Residency programs, Golden Visas, and the double tax treaty that the UK and US have with Portugal.

If you’re a British citizen, find out more about how we can help you here.
