Re: Proving NHR to UK taxation authorities

I do not see that as an issue in the contex of losing your residence, or NHR status.
Ideally ask Financas for a formal response whether they want you to submit a tax return in PT for that year, if...

Re: Scaremongering

I haven't indeed, but that's maybe because I do not tend to look for loopholes, but prefer to follow the rules, as I was brought up to believe that the rules should be followed and that I am not a...

Re: Scaremongering

The failure to register is still an administrative matter for EU citizens.
For third country citizens that failure is a violation of the law.
And ignorance of the law has never been accepted as a...

Re: Scaremongering

I was sarcastic 😎
And, Portuguese bureaucracy aside, I have zero sympathy to anyone who did not register when the process was easier, or who waited till the last few days for unknown reasons....

Re: The ins and outs of working within Portugal for a UK company

My comments are, of course, in no way a professional advice, but merely my personal opinion.

1. The OP can't be both a posted worker and a NHR. Being a posted worker by default assumes that the...

Re: Englobamento mess

I seem to be missing something here.

If you go for englobamento, that means you pay tax on rates lower than 28% tax at source, and you would expect some refund of the tax already retained at...

Re: Any Euro accounts which pay interest?

Not (entirely) true.

Interest is taxed at source at 28%.
In the tax return there are two options:
a) do not declare the interest and leave it as it is, including the tax charged. That is...

Re: Any Euro accounts which pay interest?

I'd suggest you switch to OpenBank, which is also Santander, but a much more user-friendlier version.
No charge for the c/a or for the debit card.
Some savings options with miserable rates, as...

Re: NIF/Bank Account

Totally unnecessary, considering the time and the cost for doing so, as well as the purpose of that account.

Few hundred pounds could be exchanged cash, at a good rate, with much less hassle.

Re: NHR Rules

Exactly.
NHR is a consequence of becoming PT tax resident, as a matter of fact it is not a substitute for the visa requirement for stays exceeding 90 days.

If the OP wishes to benefit from NHR,...

Re: Buying a car

Driving alone is not anything I would recommend.

You also need at least two overnight stops - France and Spain, if not three - France 1, France 2 and Spain.
