BPCC Business Breakfast - “State Budget 2020 – will Big Brother be watching you?”

BPCC Business Breakfast - “Work and new technologies – how do they impact my business?”The British-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce's next Business Breakfast in the Algarve is - “State Budget 2020 – will Big Brother be watching you?” at Hilton Vilamoura as Cascatas Golf Resort & Spa on Wednesday 26th February.

Keynote Speaker: Ricardo Chaves, CEO & Chartered Accountant at All Finance Matters
Foreword presentation by Manuela Robinson, Joint Country Manager at Blacktower Financial Management Group

2020 will bring some changes to the Non Habitual Residency scheme, the Golden Visa programme and the Local Lodging sector, amongst others. Will Portugal continue to be the place to attract foreigners for investment and retirement?

Although some of these measures might seem to scare foreign investment, they can also be seen as an opportunity for others to come and live in Portugal. This state budget adopts tax policies that seek to remove the pressure in the real estate market  metropolitan areas, especially Lisbon and Porto.

Together with the State Budget, 2020 also brings news to the accountancy procedures on companies, with accountants now having to submit to tax authorities the SAFT - Standard Audit File for Tax Purposes file that will allow them to know even more about your business: are you and your company prepared for this?

The session will allow our members ample time to discuss these and other questions they might have, but also to share their experiences and learn from each other.  As usual there will also be ample time during and after the session for our members to network and engage with the speaker on matters of interest!
