Declare tax/ non-tax resident

When you relocate to Portugal and spend more than 183 days in a given year here, it is essential to transition your tax status to become a tax resident. As a tax resident, you are obligated to report your worldwide income

likewise, if you decide to leave Portugal or no longer remain in the country for over 183 days, it is necessary to declare yourself as a non-tax resident. In this status, you are not subject to taxation on your global income.
