Madeira`s International Business Centre
In 1980 it was approved the creation of Madeira`s Free Trade Zone, currently known as Madeira`s International Business Centre (IBCM), a regime that is part of the Portuguese Tax Benefits Statute.
The IBCM is expressly approved by the European Union as form of State aid to promote the regional development of an ultra-peripheral region, and is fully integrated in the Portuguese legal system.
The IV regime was approved in 2015, granting a number of tax benefits to companies licensed to operate within the scope of the IBCM, including a reduced rate of Corporate Income Tax (CIT, Portuguese IRC tax) of 5% until December 31st, 2027.
Special Tax Regime for Non-Habitual Residents
Part of a broader strategy to attract foreign investment and increase its economic competitiveness, becoming a premium real estate location as well as one of the leading EU countries in R&D and new technologies, in 2009 Portugal introduced a privileged Personal Income Tax regime for non-habitual residents (NRH).
These NHR will be tax exempt regarding most foreign income, while benefiting from a reduced taxation on some Portuguese income, provided some conditions are met.
