U038Y0DB0LTbr /> I think it's the most productive to focus on finding 2 one for Estonia, and one for Portugal.
On the Estonian side, I'm very happy with Xolo (been using them since 2016), and Magrat (for more legal questions, using them ad-hoc since earlier this year).
On the Portuguese side, I don't know. I had this problem with Estonia+Poland. And a tax advisor working with the local accounting company in PL clarified things for me a lot.
E-residency doesn't really mean anything - it may only mix things up for the tax advisor in Portugal. Focus on the question "I am a director/employee/owner [or any combination of this] of the Estonian company, residing in Portugal, how do I tax that?". Then they can look up for the equivalents of Estonian income categories in Portugal, specific tax treaties, and tell you what to do based on that.

It's cheaper to have 1h consultations with 20 different international tax experts. Then come up with your own decision and execution is pretty easy as well
kks 2mo
Yes. And have also hired through them. Happy to answer any questions you have

What do you guys & girls think about this scenario :eyes:

Living in either the Philippines, Thailand or Malaysia for 6+ months per calendar year to be considered a tax resident where foreign income isn't taxed to live an income tax-free lifestyle. Is this possible and has anyone in here done it? burning-money
borowis 2mo
sure, I've seen some people do that, like I think wanderingdev who's no longer a member. there is a problem how to proof to your home country that you're no longer a tax resident there and it's not an easy one
quaid 2mo
Just be aware that Thailand plan to tax foreign income from 1st Jan 2024
Also if your citizenship country finds out you have been paying taxes to no one, they could retroactively declare you a tax resident and give you a huge tax bill. Living tax free is super risky
the process is basically you need to move tax residency from your citizenship country to another country that charges taxes, so you can make a clean break there, and then move from that country to the zero tax one, where it'll be less of a fight because you already aren't a citizen and have no ties
Basically, if you receive tax residency proof in zero-tax country - your plan is 100% possible.

Somewhat Bulgaria-specific (but maybe much of EU is the same) Iโ€™m a USA + EU dual citizen, lived mostly in the USA until recently. Iโ€™m in Bulgaria now. Iโ€™m considering applying for a 5 year residency card in Bulgaria. But Iโ€™m also considering leaving after ~9 months, spread across 2 years so that Iโ€™m in BG for less than 6 months in any given calendar year โ€ฆ which would put me under the threshold for needing to file a tax return in BG. My question is would having a long-term residency mean I need to file a return anyway? Do I need to โ€œrelinquishโ€ my residency on the way out or something, to alert them not to expect a tax return?

Your income is considered locally sourced if you live there, it doesn't matter where your employer is. Foreign income is generally going to mean some kind of passive income rental income, or dividends, etc

you want to look at low tax countries such as uae, georgia, bulgaria, cyprus, etc
jaydevos 2mo
Already a tax resident in Bulgaria, trying to lower it a bit more now ๐Ÿ˜„
jaydevos 2mo
Already moved my tax residency from Belgium to Bulgaria, halfway there ๐Ÿ˜œ

If you had to choose one country to set up your company, which one would you pick and why?
roger 2mo
US, because:
โ€ข Iโ€™m a US citizen so I have to deal with US taxes and legalities already.
โ€ข US business banking is excellent.
โ€ข Things like IP rights are more enforceable than most places.
โ€ข US companies are very scalable (probably no better environment for bringing on investors, going public, etc.)
luskira 2mo
ykeufzk which state would you incorporate in?
roger 2mo
etyoyorgk if you have a physical address somewhere to use Iโ€™d look hard at that state first because it would remove the costs of having a mail service to receive state notices, but otherwise|Delaware has a good reputation. Iโ€™ve had good experiences with Utah.
luskira 2mo
Interesting, I've heard a lot about Delaware, mostly for companies that want venture capital, but I've heard there are other states that are great for saas bootstrapped companies

"A Nevada LLC doesnโ€™t have an information-sharing agreement with the IRS" Lol mate, this is so alien to me hahahah
roger 2mo
I wouldnโ€™t count on that. ๐Ÿ˜† Certain states like to pretend they are their own country, but defying the federal government only lasts as long as there isnโ€™t a court order.
aekrylov 2mo
It seems like for non US citizens US is also a great option, especially for nomads

Hi guys, I got a question for all EU citizens that have a company in Portugal? How do you handle your taxes and how long do you actually stay in your home country vs Portugal? Tnx a bunch Tom, you can also dm me ๐Ÿ˜€

Can anyone recommend good accounting and bookkeeping specialist/company who can help with
UK and EU VAT? and international taxes in general
This message was deleted.
I did when I was 19, lol... probably a different situation
ioblkgiufpssdi how long ago was that? Jajaja and what did you have to do? Might be different but any advice counts. Were you working for a Mexican company or abroad? Or not working jaja
you probably read through this?|[โ€ฆ]ng-entering-canada-non-residents/leaving-canada-emigrants.htmlbr />
It really depends. I was not making a lot of money, so they didn't really give me an issue. I think I got a bill for healthcare like a year after living in Mexico and I called and said I'm not living in Canada and they said oh ok and cancelled it.

But if you make decent money, and you want to stop paying taxes in Canada, you may have to "prove" you are moving and not returning in the foreseeable future. biggest things are are you still renting a place? if you own your house, are you renting it to someone else, etc.
I'm somewhat up to date on it as we're planning on moving abroad next year hopefully, been back in Canada for 7 years
Thank you!! ptbasafxsasfdt I have! Iโ€™m not renting and wont have any โ€œsignificant tiesโ€ because I donโ€™t own property or have significant investments. Iโ€™m planning to apply to the Mexican temporary residency through economic solvency which is pretty easy to obtain but my understanding is that thatโ€™s not enough to be considered a non-tax resident of Canada because I wouldnโ€™t be paying taxes in Mexico (since my income comes from a US company, not Mexican). So Iโ€™m a bit scared of making the move and then find out I still need to pay in Canada. I also donโ€™t earn thaaat much, but want to make sure Iโ€™m compliant. Are you planning on moving to Mexico?
no, I applied for a visa in Taiwan actually
they mostly want to catch people who say they're moving away but that's only partially true, it seems to me. if you legitimately move away, don't enter Canada very often, don't have a home, don't have significant personal items left there, it's pretty easy to prove you don't live there anymore. whether you're paying tax or not isn't the main factor
I should say, _where_ you're paying tax doesn't matter
are you contract work or an employee at the US company?
Thatโ€™s helpful! Thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ I am a contractor with a US company
are you an American citizen or green card holder? I'd be more worried about the US side lol
I am none jaja
that's good
Hi kwahtumcop I know a good one in Bulgaria who can file EU VAT taxes for digital nomads. I was discussing doing this for digital nomads selling all around Europe with him. To arrange this for reasonable costs, hassle-free. I could forward you to him if you send me a PM. I'd like to know if others believe there is a need for that. We'll be one of many, but with a more complex world selling cross-country, there must be some need for this? Would not mind working together with Nomad List on this, tbh. ๐Ÿ’ก
vagabond 21d
yes please! I would really appreciate if you could send me the details.

There are a lot of companies out there but everyrone is good on paper (website in this case) - then year later turns out you have some major compliance issues

hence I am looking for recommendations ๐Ÿ™
Yup. Please send an email to ill forward ur details to my accountant there.

how long have you been out of australia for UCVCAKV9D? i know this isn't the best place to ask, but i'll be going away long term in a new few months and im curious if theres any tax benefits to living out of australia long term, but still being a citizen
Since 2014. It depends where you decide to move to, since youโ€™ll have to pay tax somewhere but ideally you move to a lower cost of living location and then you can save on tax.
benmneb 20d
wow nice. im going to be moving around every 3 - 6 months or so, and wonโ€™t be a tax resident anywhere else, but somewhere along the line i got the idea that not being physically located in australia for ~12 months would have an impact on the tax you pay ๐Ÿค”
It's not possible to not be a tax resident anywhere. If you don't become a tax resident somewhere else, then you'll remain a tax resident of Australia.
benmneb 20d
i understand that - but that doesnt mean it wouldnt have an effect on it. im taking from what youre saying that in your experience there is no difference in tax while living in / out of australia?
