In very general terms, a Golden Residence Permit holder who spends less than 183 days each year in Portugal and who does not have personal, business or corporate income / capital gains arising from activities physically conducted in Portugal is not liable for taxation in Portugal.

Moreover, assuming that a current or previous Golden Residence Permit holder eventually goes on to become tax resident in Portugal, those persons enjoy a 10-year tax break being charged the lowest rate of tax at 20%.
