THERE ARE MANY STEPS TO SUCESSFUL INVESTING IN PORTUGAL

PHASE 1 - LOOKING FOR REAL ESTATE

Before making a decision

The question is not just WHAT are you looking for, but perhaps even more important is WHERE are you looking? Are you AWARE of what's about to happen, politically, geographically or financially?


Services: Scouting and Insight


When making a decision

Have you considered all the variables? Farmland is cheap but what are you allowed to do with it? What infrastructure is there in place? A building downtown, what constraints and considerations do you need to account for? 


Services: Evaluation and Risk Assessment 

After making a decision

Projects of all sizes, particularly in small and remote places, WILL require political backing and/or approval. Financial and business plans need to be realistic and localized.


Services: Concept Viability, Political Assessment and Communication Channels

PHASE 2 - FROM DECISION TO ACQUISITION

When buying

Handling the always important set of legal and bureaucratic work: terms and conditions for the sale, registry, documentation, making sure there are no debts, obligations, inheritance complications or any other pending issues associated the assets.

Services: Due Diligence and Contracts

PHASE 3 - FROM PROJECT TO DEVELOPMENT

Before developing

Plans need to be drawn, project proposals need to be presented and paperwork needs to be submitted. Nothing is impossible with the right preparation and expertise.

Services: Project Development and Licensing*

*

Southern Europe is not the Wild West, rules and regulations are in place. While licensing can be straightforward in some cases, it can also be one of the most challenging steps (or even a downright impediment) for things to happen. It is extremely important to have realistic expectations and expert advisory when making plans and making investments. We are here to help but also to tell you when to let go!

During development

Making sure things happen as planned, on time, on budget as best as possible, or otherwise make sure there is an adequate response and reaction to natural events and political or economical developments as they happen. Who can predict a natural disaster or an invasion in Europe?

Services: Project Oversight

SIDE QUEST - INCORPORATION, LEGAL AND FISCAL REPRESENTATION

Incorporation and soft landing

We highly recommend incorporating in Portugal and securing legal and fiscal representation. We are happy to work with your long term international partners while we can also become your local partners for your project needs.
