afpop and euroFINESCO IRS Tax SeminarsFor the 21st consecutive year the afpop Tax Seminars have been arranged in association with euroFinesco and will take place at the end of January and beginning of February 2017. These seminars come at a very opportune time for all those who are obliged to issue a tax declaration in Portugal for the past tax year (2016) and for 2017 and future years.

The dates for the seminars are:

Tuesday 24th January at Boavista Golf Clubhouse, Lagos
Friday 27th January at the Vila Gale Hotel, Tavira
Wednesday 1st February at the Conrad Hotel, Quinta do Lago, Almancil

The seminars will start at 11am, registration and coffee from 10:30am. Attendance at the Seminars will cost 15 euros for afpop Members (5 euros for a second Member per booking) and 30 euros for non-Members.

The afpop Tax Seminars provide the information which residents in Portugal and people moving to Portugal need to know about their individual obligations for presenting their Tax Declarations to the Finanças; the tax rates and deductions and credits that are available; ways to submit annual Declarations; double taxation treaties; the penalties for either false declaration or late submissions … and upcoming changes in legislation which may be imposed.

The presenters from euroFinesco are there to give impartial advice about all matters to do with individual taxation. They will answer questions which are considered of general interest in the open forum and are also on hand to give more specific personal advice, after the group session has been completed. Where such advice would require the euroFinesco staff to undertake enquiries on behalf of the individual, this would have to be done on a professional basis outside of the seminar. Where they are able to offer advice about an individual or unusual circumstance, they are generally happy to do so at the seminar.

For people who have any doubts about their legal obligations, or who have concerns about their ability to complete their Tax Return without guidance, the afpop Tax Seminars are essential. For those people who cannot attend, but would like the information, the packs will be available after the event at the cost of seminar attendance.

Bookings for these seminars can be made by email to or by phoning the afpop office on 282 458 509. A registration form can also be completed on the website Payment can be made in advance by cheque or bank transfer, or in cash at the seminar registration on the day.
