Don’t get caught paying 53% capital gains tax in 2023

By Mark Quinn
This article is published on: 12th December 2022

12.12.22

The saying goes that there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes. One you cannot control but the other you can through advice and careful planning.

Short-term CGT: approved for 2023
From 1st January 2023 any gain arising from the disposal or transfer of shares/securities held for less than 365 days will be taxed at progressive rates of income tax i.e. 48% plus 2.5%/5% solidarity tax, if your total taxable income (including the gain) is more than €75,009.

Shares/securities held for more than 365 days, or where your total taxable income including the gain is below €75,009, will remain taxable at 28%.

This is important if you or your investment adviser is trading, rebalancing or switching regularly.

Changes to taxation of crypto: budget proposal
Portugal has been touted as a crypto investor’s dream with 0% tax on gains. Although not yet agreed, investors should be aware of the potential changes to the taxation of crypto assets which if agreed, will come into effect in 2023.

Firstly, NFTs could be deemed crypto assets under the new definition. Secondly, it is not just simply selling crypto/NFTs that will trigger a charge – other triggers include purchasing goods and services with crypto or trading for a different type of crypto.

Gains arising on the disposal of crypto will be taxed if held for less than 365 days at 28%. This will apply even if the crypto was purchased before the rules (potentially) come into force on 1st January 2023.

Issuing, mining or validating crypto transactions would be deemed a business activity and taxed as such i.e. 15% of the income taxable at progressive rates without deductions for expenses (if the business did not generate more than €200,000 gross in the previous year). If the business generated more than €200,000 in the previous year, net income is taxable at progressive tax rates (48% plus 2.5%/5% solidarity tax). If trading via a company, 21% plus surtaxes may apply.

CGT and Bitcoin taxes

Solution: wrap it up!
Investing within a tax-favoured structure could shield you from short-term CGT. This means that your investment decisions will not be constrained by the tax implications, and you can benefit from compounding/tax-free roll-up of income and gains.

Become your own tax planner
For those relocating to Portugal, it is an opportune time to tax plan. There is no ‘step-up’ in Portugal, and gains are taxable from the date of the original purchase. You can create your own step-up by rebasing your assets before you leave your home country i.e. sell and repurchase your funds/shares. This will also allow you to utilise any CGT reliefs/allowances that would otherwise not be available in Portugal or be taxed at a much lower rate than 28% depending on your originating country’s CGT tax rules.

Financial myth busting for expats in Portugal

By Mark Quinn
This article is published on: 7th December 2022

07.12.22

In my conversations with clients, I come across several issues that create confusion. In this article we will dispel some key common myths.

Myth 1 – “I’ve left the UK so I won’t pay UK taxes”
The UK has a particularly complicated and adhesive tax system that clings on to former residents after they have left if they have not effectively severed their ties. So, even though you have left the UK, you could still be liable to tax in the UK on income, capital gains and on death (inheritance tax).

Additionally, certain types of income may remain taxable in the UK even after you have left and established residency elsewhere. This means that you may have to continue to complete an annual tax return for HMRC as well as make your annual declaration in Portugal.

Myth 2 – “I can come and go as I choose”
In order to maintain your residency in Portugal, or elsewhere, there are day limitations that you will have to adhere to. For example, in order to remain outside of the UK tax net after leaving, you have to cap the time you spend back in the UK. This may be as little as 16 days or as much as 182 days.

If you are in Portugal on a visa, such as the D7 or Golden Visa, you will have minimum stay requirements in Portugal to maintain this status.

Myth 3 – “I’ve left the UK, so I won’t be subject to UK Inheritance Tax (IHT)”
Unlike income tax and capital gains tax which is generally based on your location, liability to UK IHT is determined by your domicile. For most people, this means they will continue to pay UK IHT even if they no longer live in the UK.

There are steps you can take to mitigate a portion, or all, UK IHT but individual advice should be sought as it is a highly complex area. Any challenge by HMRC will be once you have passed so it requires specialist advice during your lifetime.

Myth 4 – “Non-Habitual Residence (NHR) means I’m not resident”
NHR is the 10-year tax incentivised scheme for new residents to Portugal. The name causes understandable confusion as it implies that you are not a resident of Portugal.

What NHR actually means is that you have not been tax resident in Portugal in the last 5 years, and in order to apply for NHR you must first be legally resident in Portugal.

This has created issues where people have not applied for NHR due to this misunderstanding, or worse, have been actively discouraged from applying for it even though in 99% of cases it is a financial ‘no brainer’.

Facts & Myths

Myth 5 – “NHR means I’ll pay 0%”
Whilst the NHR scheme is certainly very attractive and can result in low or nil tax rates, planning is required to achieve the best position and it does not happen automatically.

Myth 6 – “I report my income in the UK so I don’t have to declare in Portugal”
Many I speak to believe they can choose to report their income and gains in the place that results in the best financial position or where they ‘have always paid tax’, rather than where they should be paying tax.

As a resident of Portugal you should declare your worldwide income and gains, and pay the necessary tax, in Portugal.

Seek clear guidance
It is possible to achieve an extremely positive financial and tax position as a resident of Portugal, but you must ensure you have a clear understanding of the cross-border issues at play, particularly residency rules and taxation of income and gains to take full financial advantage.

Investment hurdles

The corrosive effect of inflation and fees

Here we look at two key hurdles to investment performance, and ultimately your lifestyle, and some ways to tackle these issues.

Inflation
This is a topical issue as we all experience the pinch of rising energy, food, and other prices, with inflation in the UK and US recently hitting 7% and 8% respectively.

It is important to monitor and understand as it tells you how much return you need to maintain your current standard of living. So, what can you do to try and beat inflation?

Moving out of cash is critical as you are losing money in real terms. There is no one solution but building a diversified risk-rated portfolio gives you a greater chance of growing your money in excess of inflation over the medium to longer term.

  • Shares/equities – as companies and earnings can adjust upwards, shares tend to keep up with inflation better over time than other investments. However, careful selection here is important as you want to select companies that are able to pass on cost increases to consumers
  • Index-linked bonds – these are fixed-income investments and their return is linked to inflation rates
  • Commodities – you can benefit from the causes of price increases by investing in companies that are involved in the production of raw materials, such as oil and metals
  • Gold – can act as a hedge against inflation and also tends to act differently to the above investment types which means it provides diversification, particularly when geopolitical risks come to the fore

These investments do come with different types of risk so you should seek advice on how to minimise and balance these types of risks. It is also important to monitor and measure risks in relation to the returns you achieve.

Fees and expenses
Another factor often overlooked is fees. These may seem small but over time they can have profound long-term effects. You do not just lose the amount of the fees you pay, but you also lose all the growth that you might have received, compounded over years.

For example, assume you have a €1m portfolio paying 6% p.a. If you had no fees to pay, after 25 years, you would have. €4.3m. If you paid 2% p.a. in costs, you would have €2.6m.

Now going further, if you could reduce your overall charge from 2% to 1% p.a., you would have approx. €3.5m. This seemingly small 1% saving is really €793,215 in real terms over 25 years! And this is being paid to someone else, not you.

investment hurdles

What can you do to control costs?
All investments have cost so you cannot avoid them, but you can manage them at all levels.

  • Structure fees e.g. a pension or an investment. These are charged by the company providing the structure
  • Underlying investment fund fees. These are charged by the company that manages the funds within the structure. These are paid out prior to the returns being paid to you, so you do not usually see these, so they can be easy to forget and review
  • Advice fees. These are paid to your financial professional whose job is to recommend and advise you. Usually, a single set-up fee and an ongoing fee are charged. The effect of the latter is very important as this can have the most significant effect as seen in the above example

I would strongly recommend that you seek clarity on each applicable fee and benchmark these against alternative solutions to get yourself the best deal.

As with most things, as time goes on, innovation usually reduces prices. Review your structures regularly and shop around for independent advice, and lastly, remember that a higher price does not mean higher quality.

A balanced portfolio

By Mark Quinn
This article is published on: 2nd December 2022

02.12.22

Investment and fund management

There are several different investment management styles to consider and each will have benefits and drawbacks. The key difference are between a managed/active/discretionary route, and a passive/tracker approach, and this can be a divisive area within the investment industry.

In order to put into context the differences between these styles and which approach may be right for you, let’s first look at what a stock market index is.

An index simply measures the performance of a group/basket of shares. For example, the S&P 500 index tracks the performance of the shares in the largest 500 companies in America. As the US market is the largest stock market in the world, and the US is the world’s largest economy, it is often seen as a barometer for the health of global markets in general. The equivalent index in the UK is the FTSE 100 index.

Managed/active management/discretionary
Historically, most private investors would invest through a fund manager. In this way, you would pay an annual percentage fee to an investment institution to actively manage your investment i.e. make the buying and selling decision on your behalf.

The aim of investing in managed investments is to generate better investment returns than the stock market index as a whole, or another appropriate benchmark.

Discretionary investment is a specialist branch of managed investment whereby the manager has a greater range of investment powers and freedoms to make buying and selling decisions without your consent (although always within with the remit and investment powers that you grant at outset).

Over recent years there have been numerous studies to suggest that many fund managers do not achieve their aims of beating their respective benchmarks, and it has led some investors to favour a “passive” investment approach.

A balanced portfolio

Passive or index trackers
Passive investment does not employ a fund manger to make decisions, and instead of trying to outperform the market, you simply ‘buy’ the market as a whole. For example by investing in an S&P 500 tracker, you would effectively be purchasing the top 500 shares in the US stock market.

The key difference between the managed style is cost i.e. whereas a manager may charge between 1-2% per annum to manage your fund, you can access a tracker fund from as little as 0.1% which can make a huge difference to your fund value cumulatively.

Proponents of this approach accept they will only even achieve the return of the market as a whole (with no outperformance) but because you are spending far less in fees, believe they will do better over the longer term.

Proponents of active management on the other hand highlight the drawbacks of the passive approach viz. in a falling market, you will only ever track a falling market, tracker funds “blindly” sell what may otherwise be high quality investments at inopportune times, and that tracker investments can still be complex to understand, such as the difference between ‘synthetic’ versus ‘physical’ tracking methods.

Summary – balance pays
As my previous two articles have demonstrated, tax and investment planning generally involves shades of grey, rather than black and white solutions and in practice we do not believe either approach is the ‘holy grail’.

Rather each management style can offer benefits within a balanced portfolio. Holding passives can reduce the overall cost of your portfolio (thus increasing your net return) and using managed funds can completement by avoiding “blind” automatic sales and potential downside mitigation.

Whichever route you choose, minimising fund fees is crucial as it is biggest eroder of returns over time.

Is Portugal a tax haven in Europe?

By Mark Quinn
This article is published on: 3rd November 2022

03.11.22

Portugal has long attracted expatriates looking for warmer climes, good food and a relaxing pace of life; but in recent years, the wide range of entry visas and attractive tax breaks for new residents have seen Portugal’s popularity soar.

With standard tax rates ranging from 14.5% to 53%, Portugal can either be crippling or a tax haven depending on how and where you structure your wealth.

New residents
Portugal introduced the Non-Habitual Residence (NHR) scheme in 2009 and made updates in 2020. It offers new residents to the country the potential for very low (or no) tax on pensions, capital gains and certain types of income for 10 years.

The greatest draws for expatriates are the favourable taxation of pension income: 10% for post-31st March 2020 NHRs (0% for pre), 0% tax on foreign dividend income and a 20% income tax rate on earned income for those working in Portugal in jobs deemed as ‘highly valued’ by the Portuguese government.

Another opportunity is for those with investment property portfolios. NHR can exempt capital gains tax in Portugal, which under normal circumstances would otherwise be taxed at progressive rates.

Existing residents
For those without NHR, Portugal can still be a tax-efficient home depending on how you structure your income and savings sources. With the correct planning and structuring, you can legitimately create a tax-favourable position and in some cases, single-digit rates of tax, which means that Portugal can still be more favourable than most individual’s home countries.

Is Portugal a tax haven in Europe

Optimise your move
Planning at least a year before your move is best to put yourself in the most favourable position. This will
allow you to take advantage of any tax opportunities in your home country and arrive in Portugal with the right structures, assets or income sources.

Caveats
The benefits of NHR do not automatically apply to all situations; planning is required to maximise tax-saving opportunities.

There are subtle nuances to the NHR scheme and international tax rules, meaning that in some cases it may not be beneficial to apply for NHR. It depends on how your income is generated and the interaction with your originating country and in some cases, we have seen this create an additional tax liability.

Another common complexity can be the interaction between taxation in Portugal and the former country. For example, what some people believe will be tax-free income may be taxable because of a nuance in the law e.g. income sources must have the ‘potential’ to be taxed in the originating country to qualify under NHR.

CLARITY WITH ADVICE

Paying zero or very low rates of tax is possible in Portugal as an NHR or standard resident, but it very much depends on each person’s circumstances. Planning (and potentially restructuring) is required.

Tax saving tips for Portugal

By Mark Quinn
This article is published on: 17th October 2022

17.10.22

Ideally, tax planning should start before you move to Portugal as this gives you the most flexibility and more planning options. However, residents can still take many steps after their move to reduce tax. Here are our 15 top tips.

Before moving to Portugal

  1. Review your asset base, do you intend to restructure your investments for life in Portugal? Look at whether they can be surrendered tax-free or at a reduced rate in your originating country, rather than leaving it until after your move
  2. Utilise any remaining carried forward losses and income and capital gains tax allowances prior to leaving your originating tax jurisdiction
  3. Take your 25% tax-free pension commencement lump sum (tax free cash) if you are UK resident. This is not available following your move to Portugal and will be taxed
  4. If you are moving from the UK and are non-UK domiciled, consider using the remittance basis to substantially reduce certain taxes before your move
  5. If your UK-based pension savings are close to or above the UK Lifetime Allowance (LTA) of £1,073,100 you must consider LTA protection. Any amount above this is taxed at 25% or 55%, depending on how the pension is drawn down. This tax could be avoided or mitigated
Tax saving tips for Portugal

After moving to Portugal

  1. Apply for Non-Habitual Residence (NHR). In the vast majority of cases it is beneficial but please seek personalised advice to confirm how this will affect your position
  2. If you are NHR, restructure your income sources and assets to take advantage of the tax breaks
  3. Holding investments directly can give rise to unnecessary capital gains and income tax. Using a wrapper such as a pension scheme, company or life assurance bond, could substantially mitigate tax
  4. Conventional planning dictates that you should maximise the value left in pension schemes given they are free of UK Inheritance Tax but the NHR regime turns this conventional wisdom upside down as you have a 10-year window to extract pension funds at a very low tax rate of 10%, after which tax can rise to over 50%. Advice must be sought before deciding to do this and must be tailored to your family situation
  5. Do things in the correct order. For example, if you have losses on certain investments realising these first could allow you to offset these against future gains but if you realise the gain first you cannot do the opposite
  6. Targeted withdrawal strategies. Funding your lifestyle from certain sources rather than others can save substantial amounts of tax. These may need to be switched over time e.g. when the NHR period ends
  7. The UK Non-resident Capital Gains Tax rules. If you are selling UK property as a Portuguese resident, only gains made from 6th April 2015 are taxable in the UK with no further tax to pay in Portugal if you have NHR
  8. If you are selling your home in Portugal capital gains tax is due on 50% of the gain at scale rates. There is main residence relief if you use 100% of the proceeds to buy a new home, but a new relief was introduced which allows certain individuals to invest the proceeds in a pension or investment instead, allowing you to release capital and provide a future income
  9. You can submit joint tax returns as a couple (you do not have to be married) in Portugal so you can take advantage of your partner’s unused tax bands
  10. Take advantage of the Portuguese personal deductions. By using your fiscal number when making certain purchases you can reduce your annual IRS tax bill e.g. €250 per taxpayer for general family expenses, €1,000 on health expenses etc

What is a QNUPS, do I need one?

By Mark Quinn
This article is published on: 10th October 2022

10.10.22

Qualifying Non-UK Pension Scheme (QNUPS) was introduced by HMRC in 2010. In simple terms, it is a type of international pension that must adhere to certain HMRC rules to be recognised by HMRC. A QNUPS should not be confused with a QROPS (Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme). This week, we will discuss the basics of QNUPS for Portuguese tax residents.

When might you need one?
Investors that have diverse investment needs may benefit as they can hold a wider range of assets than a traditional pension or QROPS. For example, it is particularly beneficial for holding residential UK property or for more adventurous investments such as a collection of fine wine or racehorses. But for the average investor looking to save towards or draw income for their retirement, this is unlikely to be a benefit worth paying for, there are alternative structures that could be more suitable.

Contributions paid to a QNUPS do not benefit from tax relief which is a disadvantage for savers who have qualifying contributions. However, the contributions to a QNUPS do not count towards the UK Annual Allowance, so can be a great way to save pension benefits in excess of £40,000 p.a. (2022/2023).

QNUPS

Are there really advantages?
The UK Inheritance Tax (IHT) advantage is not a reason to establish a QNUPS, and if set up for these purposes, HMRC may view this as tax avoidance and there could be severe tax consequences and we have seen penalties of up to 200% for failed schemes. It must be set up for genuine retirement purposes e.g. the individual could not contribute to a regulated pension.

Tax-free roll-up within the structure: this is also a benefit of UK-based pensions and other non-pension savings structures available in Portugal. A transfer to QNUPS is not required to achieve this.

Income tax benefits: all foreign retirement income will benefit under Non-Habitual Residence (NHR). Post NHR, depending on how the pension was funded, income can be taxed at scale rates of income tax, as an annuity or as a long-term savings vehicle. You do not need a QNUPS to access such benefits and it is worth noting here that there are non-pension-based investments that offer significant tax advantages, irrespective of NHR status.

Death benefits: in Portugal, only Portuguese-based assets are subject to Stamp Duty on death if the recipient is a non-directline ascendant or descendant. So, this tax can be avoided (if assets are passing to non-immediate family) by keeping any pension or investment structure outside of Portugal. You do not need a QNUPS to access this.

Currency options: Most EU-based savings and pension schemes can offer flexible currency investment and income options.

Cost: consolidation of assets can bring about cost savings, but a QNUPS requires a ‘platform’ or savings vehicle within it to hold investments. This adds an extra layer of cost to a client think carefully if the additional cost is worth the benefits of a QNUPS.

Income provision: you must take benefits from a QNUPS during your lifetime, you cannot leave the whole fund untouched as a tax-free legacy to your beneficiaries. This must be considered post-NHR when pension income can be aggressively taxed.

Political and legislation risk: QNUPS are based on UK legislation and in order to benefit from the UK IHT advantages must continue to do so, so are still at the mercy of the UK’s political and legislative regime.

Conclusion

QNUPS are a beneficial structure if used in the right circumstances however if miss sold, they can be expensive and unnecessary, as well as have a negative tax impact on death.

If you have or are considering a QNUPS and wish to discuss the cost and suitability for your circumstances, please contact us.

Can I keep my UK pension as a Portuguese resident?

By Mark Quinn
This article is published on: 26th September 2022

26.09.22

I’m asked the above question by many clients, and the short answer is – yes. Whether it is the best thing to do however is something that should be looked into on a case-by-case basis with a qualified pension specialist.
Here, we will look at the general tax position of UK personal pensions, Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP), defined benefit schemes and qualifying recognised overseas pension schemes (QROPS) for Portuguese tax residents and the restructuring options available.

Income tax
For Portuguese tax residents, the income tax position of having a UK pension scheme and a QROPS is the same. During NHR, pension income will be taxed at 10% or 0%, depending on your NHR status. Post-NHR, generally the income will be subject to scale rates of tax.

From a UK perspective, generally, UK pension income will not be taxable in the UK and you can request to have it paid out to you in Portugal gross. This will avoid the onerous process of claiming back tax at source from HMRC. I say generally because if you have a UK-based government scheme e.g. civil service, military or certain NHS schemes, the UK retains the taxing right and the income will always remain taxable in the UK.

All pension income, irrespective of which country has the taxing right, must be declared in Portugal if you are a resident there. You will receive a tax credit for any tax paid to HMRC, so you will not have to pay tax twice on the same income.

There is no UK taxation on overseas pensions held by Portuguese tax residents as there is no UK dimension to consider.

Inheritance tax
The death tax position between having a UK-based pension and a QROPS is also the same i.e. both will be outside of your estate for UK Inheritance Tax purposes.

From a Portuguese perspective, as long as the scheme is not Portuguese based, it will not attract Stamp Duty (10%) on death.

UK Pensions in Portugal

What are the options?
Your options will depend on the type of pension you have, the scheme rules and whether you have already taken income or not, but generally, your options will be:

  • Keep your UK pension as it is
  • Transfer to alternative UK personal pension or SIPP
  • Move to a QROPS (Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme)

Choosing to do nothing can be just as detrimental to your pension value as being misadvised, particularly in the long term. You should conduct regular reviews (at least annually) and address aspects such as your risk profile, capacity for loss, income requirements, rebalancing or switching underlying investments, and changes to your objectives and family circumstances.

Why would you consider a transfer QROPS?
QROPS is something that is pushed on expatriates by many offshore advisers as this is how fees are generated, and although the advice itself may not be ‘bad’, it might not be the ‘most appropriate’. So, if you are considering transferring to a QROPS we recommend that you get several opinions and ensure you only take advice from appropriately qualified advisers and reputable firms.

QROPS tends to be more expensive than UK based pension schemes because of the international dimension. For some individuals, a QROPS is the right thing but for others it is an unnecessary expense.

Some instances where a transfer to a QROPS could be beneficial are:

To reduce currency risk: a UK pension scheme will inevitably be denominated in Sterling, and this will involve regular currency conversions to meet spending needs in Euros. If the Sterling/Euro rate is low then your purchasing power diminishes. This leads some to look at overseas pensions which can be denominated in Euros or a mixture of most major currencies.

If you are in excess, or close to, the UK Lifetime Allowance (LTA):
for 2022 the UK LTA is £1,073,100. The trend over the last couple of decades has seen the LTA continually reduce.

Once you exceed the LTA, the excess is taxed at either 25% or 55% depending on how the income is taken. You cannot avoid this tax, as even if you do not access your pension, you will be tested against the LTA at age 75. Likewise, if you do access your pension before age 75, your benefits will be tested again at age 75 effectively taxing any growth since you first accessed your pension benefits.

The UK LTA cap does not apply to overseas schemes, so a transfer out can be beneficial for those close to, or over the LTA.

Qualified professional advice
You have worked your whole life to fund your retirement savings, and many are reliant on this to provide an income into old age or to provide a legacy to loved ones.
