Message to our NALLE Members and Partners

Since NALLE started to offer its services in February 2015, the Local Lodging industry has undergone profound changes. A small business sector which started out with 15.000 units, has grown, with 75.000 units to date, to be a real competition to the hotel industry in Portugal.

In 2015, there was a real lack of access to information in regards to the rules and regulations. Nowadays, the information on how to open and run such a business can be easily found online. ALEP, our Portuguese counterpart, is doing a good job in terms of information and workshops to enable owners to run their business successfully and in compliance with the law.

NALLE can now be considered to be an additional information service, adding on to many others, and we feel that we are not essential to the market.  Also, we have not been able to attract enough members over the years to cover our running costs.

We have therefore decided that we are going to provide the service until the end of 2019, without charge to our existing members, and to discontinue our work from then on.

Thank you for your support and attention!

With kind regards

Dennis Swing Greene




Probing public opinion…

On the weekend, a notice appeared in the national media that the Government may plan to increase the taxation on the AL sector in the 2017 budget.

This information is probably a test balloon to gauge public opinion on this matter.

There has already been strong opposition by some industry members, and NALLE will be voicing its opposition any such move with the Authorities.

For the moment, any news in this regard should be taken with calm. Nothing is eaten as hot as it is cooked!

Info for NALLE members

One of our NALLE members, is running a rental site, he has a Special Offer for our NALLE members, have a look at this link:


Capital Gains

There is information circulating that owners running Local Lodging businesses could face a Capital Gains Tax liability when selling the property or closing the business.
This information has not been confirmed!
Several institutions, including NALLE and the Finance Authorities, are working on the issue in order to answer this question in a satisfactory manner.
If you have heard of this rumour: don’t get spooked by it!
Keep an eye on our website, we shall publish an information about the issue as soon as it becomes available!

Government back-peddles on IRS Reform

NALLE logo-red 30%The government has abandoned many of the proposed IRS reforms to the 2015 Budget in hopes of achieving a consensus with the opposition Socialist Party. With recent successive alterations, it would appear that only the final Budget vote will clarify which changes survive.
