Let us tell you more

Move your business
to Portugal today!

In addition to being one of the most dynamic economies in Southern Europe, Portugal, especially Lisbon, is undergoing a profound transformation that offers opportunities in many sectors. Young people and businesses moved to the sunny Iberian coast, resulting in an explosion of new and innovative businesses within the ancient city walls.

Portugal has a young, talented and affordable workforce. In recent years, Portuguese universities have experienced their highest enrolment numbers and are producing many highly skilled graduates. Portugal’s talent comes at a significantly lower cost than other popular talent hubs.

Hiring and employing talent in Portugal requires having an own recognized entity and knowledge about local employment legislation. This new Portuguese environment can be complex and focusing on it will distract you from daily business and can be a real burden.

Parakar offers the solution of hiring your talent in Portugal as an Employer of Record (EOR), meaning we will manage payroll, taxes, benefits and HR-related tasks compliantly, while you remain the operational employer of your employees. Broaden your business to Portugal today!

Employment fact

In Portugal, the Non-Habitual Resident (Residente Não Habitual) tax regime was introduced in order to attract “high-value” talent to Portugal. The NHR regime is available to all new tax residents in Portugal that were not Portuguese residents for the 5 years prior. To be considered “high-value”, the job must be related to activities of scientific, artistic, or technical character.
