In 2017, HMRC have designed a new plan relative to fiscal policies with the aim to introduce several new tax rules and rates that could have an impact on UK companies and self-employed persons from 2017 onwards.

TAX RULINGS

 

Parliament"s special committee on tax rulings discusses tax measures with representatives from multinationals and various tax authorities on Monday 14 March and Tuesday 15 March. Participants include Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco and the Channel Islands as well as Apple, Google, IKEA and McDonald's. MEPs have the opportunity to question them, especially regarding the latest developments in the area of corporate taxation.

With the introduction of Portugal’s “Golden Visa” and a special tax regime for “non habitual residents”, Portugal has become a destination of choice for many non-EU nationals.

The Golden Visa enables non-EU residents not only to be resident in Portugal, but also to move freely within the Schengen Zone.  The “Non Habitual Residents Regime” means that they can, in addition, enjoy low taxes, or, in some cases, freedom from taxation in Portugal.
