Madeira Business Centre

The Dixcart Business Centre in Madeira is a dedicated building situated on one of the most important roads in the central commercial area of Funchal, Madeira’s capital. Madeira is an integral part of Portugal, and therefore a full member of the EU, which makes activity from within the International Business Centre (IBC) of Madeira an extremely attractive proposition for international companies and individuals.

Madeira is an autonomous region of Portugal that has its own Government and legislative assembly. The island is Portuguese speaking and currency is the Euro. Madeira has strong British connections and is famous for fine quality winemaking. Madeira is also reminiscent of the historical towns in the UK due to cobbled streets, old buildings and an array of shops, bars and restaurants. The island is one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations and is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty.

Some of our satisfied customers

Our branch office has resided in Dixcart's premises since late 2009 and this arrangement is perfect; all the necessary support services immediately to hand, central location in Funchal and extremely helpful, and always cheerful, staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Their assistance in registering and establishing the office was invaluable and the support received to date has been outstanding.

I would, without reservation, commend the services of Dixcart to anyone needing to establish an office, with support services, here on Madeira island.

We have received a good attention by the representatives of Dixcart Business Centre ever since we started our activities here. At the beginning we rented a space in their building for our office, because they have an excellent and complete structure to offer to their clients.

They are very helpful, and provided us very good professional services of reception, accounting, Human Resources, technical services of the data processing systems and other administrative services. This is the reason that we consider them one of the best specialists in professional activities for foreign companies.

Although we are now operating in another address, we continue contracting their good services and are maintaining our excellent commercial relations.

They offer good support to attend their clients, including meeting rooms with excellent space and adequate equipment. In addition to this, another important thing we can mention is that they are located near downtown, in a very important avenue in an excellent area of the city.

We are very satisfied with the good services that the Dixcart Business Centre is providing to our company, therefore we can recommend them for other companies that have intention to start up their offices in the island of Madeira.
