    Low Risk Processing - 1m

    JohnnyDoe - I am also interested in learning about alternatives to Stripe and Paypal for U.S. LLCs owned by non-US residents. Our CBs are under 1% and we process around $9 - $10 million annualized. Can you please PM me - it seems I am unable to PM you.

    Schengen visit / tax residency

    @Sols - thanks for your response. Yes, I am increasingly coming to the same conclusion based on the research I've done so far - non-zero but fairly low risk.

    Schengen visit / tax residency

    @martin - I can confirm that neither of us want kids :) We have both discussed the plan that I laid down in my post and agreed that it is a viable option (since it requires us to stay apart for no more than 1 - 1.5 months a year) and satisfies her needs for feeling a sense of permanence while...

    EU countries with a strict 6 month residency based taxation?

    Are there any traditionally high-tax countries in Europe at all that follow a simple 182/183 day residency based taxation system - i.e. your length of stay in the country is the ONLY criterion they use to determine whether or not you are a tax resident, and you are not a tax resident if you've...

    Schengen visit / tax residency

    My wife and I are currently both perpetual travellers. However, my wife (but not me) is somewhat tired of the constant travelling and wants to settle down (at least partially) in Portugal. Here's a tentative plan we are thinking of: Next year, my wife plans to become a resident of Portugal and...

    Service provider for establishing UAE economic substance

    Aage - happy to pay Fred, but my understanding is that he currently only offers his full-service package to clients as opposed to consulting specifically on how to establish economic substance in the UAE. Unless I am mistaken @Fred ?

    Service provider for establishing UAE economic substance

    I own a UAE freezone company and am planning on relocating to Portugal. In order to avoid falling under Portuguese POEM laws, I need to obviously establish economic substance in the UAE by having, among other things, a "real" (not nominee) director who takes significant management decisions. Can...

    UAE freezone company / Portugal NHR

    Marzio - if you read my original post, my question was not "How do I prevent POEM laws being applicable to the UAE co" but "Why is a Malta/Cyprus co better than an UAE co". You said initially that CFC laws were the issue, and that CFC laws make Malta/Cyprus better, but as I believe I...

    UAE freezone company / Portugal NHR

    So just to clarify, what you mean is that the only reason to favour a Cyprus/Malta setup over an UAE setup is that a Cyprus/Malta company is specifically excluded from Portuguese CFC laws because those are EU countries whereas a UAE co is not? However, my understanding is that Portuguese CFC...

    UAE freezone company / Portugal NHR

    Thanks, but as noted in my message, while the UAE is indeed black-listed, it also has a DTT with Portugal. So why exactly is the fact that the UAE is black-listed not play well with NHR? Especially given that the Portuguese tax authorities have themselves agreed that dividends from a UAE co are...

    UAE freezone company / Portugal NHR

    I own a digital info-product business. The current corporate structure involves a UAE freezone parent company, a couple of Cyprus based subsidiaries of the UAE company, and a separate US LLC. I am thinking of relocating to Portugal and want to minimize potential tax liabilities in Portugal...

    Portugal Tax Lawyer Recommendation?

    Thanks Nicolas. Was hoping to avoid the big 4 (Deloitte/PWC etc.) :-) unless you think that they are in fact the best option as opposed to a standalone Portuguese law firm?

    Portugal Tax Lawyer Recommendation?

    Hi All - I own a digital info-product business incorporated in the UAE with significant (7 figure) annual profits. Currently thinking of relocating to Portugal instead of continuing to lead a nomadic existence. I know how complex the whole NHR system is, so before deciding whether or not to...
