Company Incorporation Portugal

The Portuguese economy has had some difficulties in keeping pace with the rest of the European Union and its gross domestic product remains significantly below the EU average.

However, Portugal is far from being a poor prospect for international investors. A natural hub for trade between Europe and the Americas, the country has an open economy and actively seeks to attract foreign investment, with plenty of incentives available.

To make the most of these incentives in your Portuguese incorporation or for more information about our range of company registration services, please contact us.
