ABOUT MADEIRA MANAGEMENT

Welcome

Since 1989, Madeira Management Cia Lda and our team of highly qualified, multilingual staff have provided a range of business and private consulting and support services to companies or individuals investing through or moving to Portugal and Madeira, in particular.

In 1989, we were one of the first company to obtain a management license in Madeira and today we are one of Madeira’s leading Management Companies. Our team of multilingual legal and accounting professionals, led by Dra Elita Amaral and Dra Suzel Camacho, specialises in making the Madeira International Business Centre accessible to businesses and their professional advisers. We are accustomed to providing international tax practitioners with specialist local advice and are experts in the subsequent implementation of Madeira-based international structures.

Our office has particular expertise in company incorporation and ongoing administration, ship registration and management, and the use of Madeira’s Free Trade Zone. We also offer company incorporation and ongoing administration services to companies operating in Madeira and Portugal, outside the scope of the Madeira International Business Centre.

We can provide information and assistance in utilising Portugal’s Golden Visa scheme or Non-Habitual Residents regime, both extremely interesting mechanisms for individuals.

We regularly travel to meet with clients and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person, or over the phone, to discuss how we can assist you.
