Lei indossa un cappello di lana dal quale escono i capelli fonati, un blazer blue, pantaloni di jeans attillatissimi che mettono in risalto le ore passate in palestra a tirarsi come una velina, e tiene al guinzaglio un cane di piccola taglia, povere creature ridotte ad accessori di moda.

Il Portogallo è grande - Limes. LISBON IS SHAKING: MEET THE THRIVING LUSOPHONE GLOBAL CLUB MUSIC SCENE. For us, 2014 is a year of reflection. This year we celebrate the tenth anniversary of Enchufada, a nice and round number that invites us to think about the path that brought us here, the records, the performances and achievements that made us what we are today.

Tax treatment of expat pensions How you are taxed on your pension income will depend on your residence status for tax purposes, and the type of pension you have.

The ultimate pension freedom: Retire in Portugal and reduce your tax

Britain has double tax treaties with most countries around the world that prevent you from having to pay tax in both of the jurisdictions. These treaties stipulate that your personal pension, which includes employer schemes and personal accounts such as Sipps (self-invested personal pensions), and your state pension, are only taxable in the country in which you live. So if you retire to Spain for example, you will only pay tax in that country. In the few countries that do not have a tax treaty with the UK, such as Dubai and Monaco, your pension remains taxable in the UK.

However, these countries are usually zero-tax jurisdictions, so you are not usually required to pay twice. Public sector pensions are different - they almost always remain taxable in the UK.
