afpop and euroFinesco again join forces for tax seminars

For the 20th consecutive year, the afpop Tax Seminars organised in association with euroFinesco will take place at the end of January and beginning of February. These seminars are useful for anyone with tax reporting obligations in Portugal.

“For people who have any doubts about their legal obligations, or who have concerns about their ability to complete their tax return without guidance, these seminars are essential,” says the association for foreigners in Portugal.

Seminars will take place on Tuesday, January 26 at Boavista Golf Club, Lagos, on Friday, January 29 at the Vila Gale Hotel, Tavira and on Wednesday, February 3 at the Hilton As Cascatas Hotel, Vilamoura. Seminars start at 11am, with registration and coffee from 10.30am.

The seminars provide the information residents and people moving to Portugal need: their individual obligations for presenting their tax declarations to the Finanças; the tax rates and personal allowances 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 the new government may impose.

Presenters from euroFinesco will be 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.

Bookings for these seminars can be made by email to members@afpop.com or by phoning the afpop office on 282 458 509. Cost is €15 for afpop members (€5 for a second member per booking) and €30 for non-members.
