PORTUGAL – SALE OF PROPERTY IN 2021 – CAPITAL GAINS TAX.
In regards to the sale of property in Portugal by a non-resident, please be informed that concerning the tax assessment due upon the submission of a tax return as a non-resident (the filing period starts in April and ends in June) Portugal will consider the gain in total (purchase price – sale price – eligible expenses = gain) for purposes of calculation of the tax due (rate of 28%). However, for Portuguese tax residents, the Portuguese Tax Authorities, under domestic law, only considers 50% of the gain for the calculation of the tax.
Considering the European Union Law and the right of free movement of capitals, it is now possible to appeal the tax assessment in question and have the Portuguese Tax Authorities consider the gain in only 50%, which represents a considerable saving on the final amount of tax to be settled.
The Portuguese courts all the way up to the Supreme Court have already ruled in favour of several taxpayers and the Portuguese tax authorities are now more open to settle this issue amicably.
Given the above it is now possible to file a claim and recover 50% of the tax that will be due in Portugal concerning the sale of a property by a non-resident.
Horizon Consulting is available to clarify any questions arising from this and to assist in the recovery of the tax in Portugal.
