Firstly we are not an Association, as a member of an association in Portugal and Spain you are liable to the debts of the association. So should they be sued or suffer a loss from an empolyee, you may be asked to cover those debts. In today’s environment of litigation it would be wise to avoid such potential liabilities.

Abana Ltd, a UK company has kindly negotiated discounts on products and services for our members. Discounts without the restrictions and cost of maintaining an association membership. Members benefit from an extensive range of commercial participants servicing clients in Portugal and Spain.

Sound advice
With the advent of the Internet, retrieving advice for those living and working in Portugal and Spain couldn’t be simpler. Finding professionals willing to address an audience of potential customers couldn’t be easier. In fact we actively encourage members to become contributors or even editors. We want the business owners and professionals who really know what they are talking about to post articles, whether it is about swimming pools, outdoor furniture or insurance.

No Annual Fees
There are many clubs and association in Portugal and Spain who’s sole objective is to collect the annual premium. Many hours and staff are normally required to collect these payments at substantial cost. Paying a membership fee to receive outdated information and discounts on overpriced insurance products certainly wasn’t what we wanted. We wanted a place to find no nonsense discounts on a whole universe of products and services from trusted companies.

No Middle Men
The Iberian Resident service is provided via a low cost highly automated self service platform. Keeping costs to a minimum and free to advertisers and members.

Membership without a Fee.
