Ownership of real estate in Portugal


In Portugal a few types of ownership are possible. The most common to own properties are:

With option 1 the IMT purchase taxes are applicable

Option 2 and 3 are basically anonymous ownerships whereby there is a transfer of shares. The shares own the company, and in turn, the company owns the property. The advantage is of not requiring a payment of the IMT tax and the disadvantage is that an offshore requires a yearly maintenance fee.

With option 4, becoming more common, also has no IMT costs when there are 2 shareholders purchasing the company. Often this sort of ownership is mostly used for commercial properties (B&B, hotels, etc), but it is also becoming a more common form of ownership for villas.
