Individuals who reside in tax havens and own residential property in Portugal are free from paying the 7.5% surcharge applied to the new Additional Municipal Property Tax (“AIMI”). Only companies domiciled in tax havens – offshore companies – are subject to the aggravated rate on the full ratable value (“VPT”) of residential properties. “AIMI” replaces Stamp Tax, which provided for the application of a tax rate of 1% on each property with a “VPT” greater than one million euros.
