IRS tax seminars
For the 23rd 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 2019.
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 (2018) and for 2019 and future years.
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.
The 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 dates for the seminars are:
Tuesday, January 29 – Boavista Golf Clubhouse, Lagos
Friday, February 1 – Real Marina Hotel and Spa, Olhão
Tuesday, February 12 – Conrad Hotel, Quinta do Lago, Almancil
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 will also be available to give more specific personal advice, after the group session has been completed. Where such advice requires euroFinesco to undertake enquiries on behalf of the individual, this would have to be done on a professional basis outside of the seminar.
The seminars will start at 11am, with registration and coffee from 10.30am. Attendance at the seminars will cost €15 for afpop members (€5 for a second member per booking) and €30 for non-members. The fee includes a copy of the euroFINESCO Portuguese IRS Individual Income Tax Return booklet for the fiscal year 2018.
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. The seminars are open to all.
