A paradise. For Non-Habitual Residents.

Tax regime for retired people or qualified professionals.

A mild climate, good gastronomy. The excellent education system and public health systems. Safety. Portugal has many factors that attract foreigners to the country for vacation or living. The Algarve is one of the areas chosen by many. Therefore, some choose to join the Non-Habitual Residents (RNH) regime, which offers tax benefits for 10 years to those who apply for tax residency in Portugal. This scheme aims to attract retired people or professionals qualified in highly valued areas.

It can be applied for by foreigners, but also by Portuguese who have lived outside the country and wish to return. In any case, and to enjoy the benefits, applicants must stay for more than 183 days a year in Portugal or have a normal residence and have not lived in the country in the five years before applying. Verdelago Resort is an opportunity to access these benefits, with a safe and tangible investment, whilst having the advantage of living in a unique place, where well-being, health and comfort come together.
