REQUIRED SERVICE AGREEMENT
A Digital Nomad living in Portugal might have the obligation to pay Portuguese Personal Income Tax. This will happen when any person working remotely or at the office (i) spent more than 183 days physically in Portugal, whether these days are consecutive or not in any 12-month period or (ii) if staying for a shorter period, provided that he has a dwelling in the Portuguese territory leading to the presumption of holding and occupying it as a place of habitual abode. If one of these situations occurs, the individual will be considered as a Portuguese Tax Resident. As such, will have to declare his worldwide income, which will include the income of remote work.
Moreover, and even if the individual is not considered as a Portuguese tax resident, he would be subject to tax on his Portuguese sourced income.
How to avoid being taxed in Portugal?
In order to avoid double taxation, the Digital Nomad must prove that he is a tax resident in another country, according to the rules of the relevant Tax Treaty, providing to the Portuguese Tax Authority a tax residency certificate.
