Government approves tax regime applicable to the Pension Fund for Lawyers and Solicitors – Jornal Económico

The Government approved on Thursday the decree-law that revises the tax regime in IRC applicable to the Bank and the Solicitors' Pension Fund (CPAS), equating it to that of social security institutions. The information was disclosed in a statement by the Council of Ministers.

The Government considers that CPAS is an “autonomous social security institution whose primary purpose is to provide old-age pensions and disability allowances to lawyers and associates of the Order of Solicitors and Enforcement Agents”.

With this measure, the Government intends to pursue the objective of “strengthening the institution's sustainability”, after 2018 “having revised the CPAS regulation in order to ensure its sustainability and the equity of the beneficiaries' contributory effort”.
