Portugal on BBC list of top 7 places in the world to retire

On January 2nd the BBC Capital website released a list of the seven best places in the world to retire, and as has been the case in other similar studies released over the last year, Portugal featured prominently with special mention of the Algarve. BBC’s researcher Roy Budden singled out Portugal along with Panama, France, Malaysia, Malta, Thailand and Belize.

The amenable climate, golf courses and an established expat community were just some of the reasons cited for Portugal being rated as one the best places in the world to retire with the additional benefits of Portugal’s non-habitual residence tax scheme meaning that foreign-sourced pension income can be exempt from income tax for a period of up to 10 years.
