Year End Tax Updates

Madeira’s General Corporate Tax

Madeira’s Regional Budget for 2021 has been approved by the Representative of the Republic to the Autonomous Region of Madeira. Under the new budget, the general corporate income tax rate (CIT) is 14,7%. This means that Madeira has a more attractive CIT than major European economic power houses such as: Austria (25%), Germany (aprox. 25%), France (30%), Italy (27,9%), Luxembourg (25%), Netherlands (25%), etc…

This new 14,7% CIT, combined with Madeira’s internet infrastructure, full EU law compliance and friendly expat environment, makes the island the perfect location to conduct international business in Portugal and Europe. Furthermore, special incentives such a the Madeira International Business Center (a reduced 5% CIT) and a 10-year tax holiday for expats looking into to relocate to the island, can be also available, provided that several conditions are met by the investors.
