About us


Welcome to LC Consulting, our company is registered in Portugal, based in the Algarve, but takes assignments throughout Portugal. Portugal is a diverse country surrounded by an unspoilt coastline, stunning beaches and an idyllic countryside. This beautiful country offers a unique sense of history matched with a unique cuisine, some of the best golf resorts in the world and an amazing climate that really makes it stand out as a fantastic place to relocate to. The cost of living, in comparison to other European countries, is just a fraction and is easily accessible from/to other cities in Europe. 

My name is Luis Cardoso, I started LC Consulting in 2009 when I understood the necessity of creating a company that could help people solving issues when moving to Portugal. I was already doing this for friends, so why not expand and develop the idea and help more people. I understand the unique challenge to move to another country because I have experienced it myself. My experience in both cultures and my knowledge in Portuguese, Swedish, English and Spanish facilitates my work with clients.I was born in Lisbon - Portugal, grew up in Malmö – Sweden, and this, I believe has given me the opportunity to learn both countries' systems.

LC Consulting aim to ease the transition of moving to Portugal, as moving to countries requires a lot of paperwork and visits to officials, which can be tedious and time consuming. No matter how great or small your problem is, let us help you find the solution so you don’t have to. What we cannot solve ourselves, we delegate to our professional partners. But we can always, if required, act as an interpreter or advisor. We will ensure that you will have all the correct documentation as swiftly as possible and this will allow you to concentrate on enjoying your new life in Portugal.


If you move to Portugal, you will need to arrange various documentation with several authorities.

LC Consulting will ensure that you have all the correct documentation as swiftly as possible to allow you to concentrate on your new life in Portugal.

We see it as a challenge to turn your problems into solutions.

Time Bank

New service – Hour bank 

LC Consulting designed a new service in form of an hourly package which the customer can buy as used hours drawn on a pre-paid list. The customer can call about their questions, minor tasks, etc. without possibly feeling that they are taking up an appointment which they do not pay for. The time used is set up on a time list / "hour bank". 

The customer can now buy an hourly package as below and every time they contact us with questions that we have to solve or help them with, that time is deducted from this list. 

Are you interested in pre-purchasing time in form of an hour bank from LC Consulting for this purpose, you are welcome to contact us. Hourly packages can be purchased as followed example: 

2h Consultation Price: 160 Euro excl. VAT / VAT
4h Consultation Price: 320 Euro excl. VAT / VAT

This service is intended for shorter assignments that can be solved fairly immediately either by phone call or email contact or otherwise agreed with the customer. 

Ordering the above can only be done by email.  When we receive your email, we will send you more info that applies to this service.
