A new governmental measure aims to increase the private investment, namely for the small and medium-sizes companies, in order to stimulate Portuguese economy. As such, the companies that invest in Portugal in the last semester of 2013 will have the possibility to deduct 20% of the total amount invested, up to the limit of 70% of the annual taxation of the company. It should be added that with this measure, a reduction of the effective tax corporation up to 7,5% may occur. With this tax benefit, the Portuguese Government aims for not only an increase of the investment as well as a decrease of the unemployment rate, mainly among young people, showing a change in its growth strategy.
