Individual - Taxes on personal income

Last reviewed - 31 December 2019

Residents in Portugal for tax purposes are taxed on their worldwide income at progressive rates varying from 14.5% to 48% for 2019.

Non-residents are liable to income tax only on Portuguese-source income, which includes not only that portion of remuneration that can be allocated to the activity carried out in Portugal but also remuneration that is borne by a Portuguese company or permanent establishment (PE).

Non-residents are taxed at a flat rate of 25% on their taxable remuneration in 2019.

Special rates apply to capital gains and investment income.
