Re: Property in UK, Tax in Spain

We rent out our home in the uk. Pretty simple. Declare the rental income on a self assesment hmrc form every year. And declare the rental imcome on our spanish tax return. We dont pay any tax in the uk on the uk house as its 50/50 owned and north of the watford gap!

Re: Linea Directa

I had read on here about the notice required, which was why I was expecting my renewal notice in good time. I had to leave for the UK, but got back to an empty letterbox. The letter's dated 23/11 (I got it 27/11) so no chance to decline within the 1 month thing. It lists my credit card (which I use...

Re: Linea Directa

Yes the laws about renewing. As you say good luck trying to get your quote within the time frame

Same law where you have to give them a months notice if you want to leave. (Used to be two) they have to give you two months notice if they are going to increase it.

Re: Linea Directa

Well, I'm not giving Linea Directa much more than 4/10, on the basis that less than 50% of my dealings with them are successful (or even sensible). To recap, I took out my first car insurance in Spain, December 2017, after speaking to a very competent and pleasant person. As my luck goes, I had a c...

Re: Road Tax Payment

Shouldnt the bill go to the address on the log book. The company that did the paperwork for you should have registared the car at your home adress?. I dont believe you can pay the car tax for next year until then. As its based on who is the owner on jan1st. Some townhalls allow you to change your ad...
