Why UK landlords are flocking to Portugal

I understand that whilst Portugal's non-habitual resident (“NHR”) taxation regime is not subject to minimum or maximum stay requirements you are however required to have the "ability" to stay in Portugal for a minimum of 182 days e.g. In a property that you own or rent - even if you do not actually do so. I understand hotels and short stay accommodation would not qualify in this regard. Furthermore if you reside in the U.K. for more than 90 days you will remain subject to U.K. taxation irrespective of your Portuguese NHR status. If on the other hand you are able to avoid the U.K. taxation altogether you would lose you U.K. tax free allowance.

Landlord Reactions To The 2017 Autumn Budget

All of this might seem reasonable you think - until you realise the claim was for 100% of the Council Tax for an alleged one day void totalling ........£1.70!
I appealed the case successfully as they had miscalculated and no Council Tax was in fact due.
Not quite sure how much that fiasco cost the genuine Council Tax payers of Manchester.... Read More
