Fiscal Benefits Evaluation

This project was commissioned by the Portuguese Tax Authority, and it means to assess the economic impact of three capital tax benefits. These tax benefits exempt non-resident financial institutions who lend money to or make deposits in Portuguese from paying taxes on the earned interest. The other tax benefit exempts non-resident firms from paying capital income taxes on the interest earned in leasing contracts of some predetermined resident firms.

The project was concluded in July 2020.
