Link Global Management can provide a full range of payroll services in Portugal. The individual will be engaged on our payroll and income is paid in the form of salary, allowances and expenses, the proportion of each part depending on individual circumstances.

Salary, Tax & Social Security

Link Global Management deducts tax and social security at source on a PAYE basis, and payments are made to the relevant authorities on the employee's behalf. The taxable amount may be reduced by offsetting certain business expenses. There are different tax rates and bands according to earnings level and marital/family status.

Link Global Management will discuss your personal circumstances with you and help you to minimise your tax and social security liabilities, within the boundaries of Portuguese legislation.

Tax Returns

Income is managed tax efficiently, not just in Portugal but also in any other country where there may be a liability. A tax return is filed each year in Portugal with advice and assistance from Link Global Management who will also provide help with filing tax returns elsewhere, if required.
